Zando Cape Town 10s

South Africa's biggest amateur sporting tournament is back with a bang for the ninth time

The 2017 Zando Cape Town 10s social sport and lifestyle event, which has been billed as the biggest amateur sporting tournament of its kind, descends on Hamilton’s Rugby Club in Green Point on Friday, 3 February and Saturday, 4 February 2017. More teams will be competing in a bigger variety of sporting codes, and a bigger entertainment line-up will mark this year's mammoth event.

Squads and fans from across the globe gather for two days of tackling, diving, hoop shooting, and dodging. Even those not particularly interested in the sports can look forward to top-class South African musical acts, a gargantuan beer tent and tons of family friendly activities. The organisers have added dodgeball to this year's tournament, so now you can enter a team and channel your inner Ben Stiller.


SPORTING CODES: In celebration of the event’s ninth anniversary, the multi-sport tournament is set to be bigger and better than ever before, with around 20 000 people in 300 teams going head-to-head during this two-day festival. Fans can catch international rugby legends alongside some of South Africa’s very own icons from the 2007 Rugby World Cup team, as well as Bob Skinstad and Robbie Fleck (who are the founders of the event). The Cape Town 10s is renowned for bringing the most iconic international sports stars to the event and 2017 is no exceptions as the 2007 Springbok Rugby World Cup squad will be part of the action at the event!

ENTERTAINMENT: This event is not just about the sporting action though; the much-loved Mother City event is also one big festival featuring top-notch musical acts, dress-up competitions, plenty of food and wine stalls, Africa's biggest beer tent and entertainment and sports clinics for the little ones. The day’s activities on both Friday and Saturday will culminate in roaring parties that are set to be unforgettable. This year's event will also be a cashless affair. Attendees can pre-load cash (or use one of the Howler Loading stations located at the venue) onto their wristbands, and use that to purchase items.
