The inaugural Tshwane 10s was held in 2016 at the Harlequin Club in South Africa’s capital, Pretoria. Tshwane 10s runs off the back of the award-winning Cape Town 10s that is the brainchild of rugby legends Bob Skinstad and Robbie Fleck and long-standing mate Ron Rutland.
This 2017 “social Olympics” festival saw huge success with 46 rugby teams, 20 soccer teams, 20 netball teams and over 20 dodgeball teams taking part over the weekend. The 2018 event will be introducing 5 aside hockey.
The event last year brought in some of the world’s biggest rugby legends, including Todd Clever, Bakkies Botha, Danie Gerber, Doppies La Grange as well as global sporting star and EFC champion, Garreth “Soldierboy” McLelland, who all took part in the various weekend activities.
Tshwane 10s is designed for those who love sport and who love to have a lot of fun while taking part in their favourite sport! No experience needed. Included in the epic weekend festivities is live entertainment, thrilling sporting action and the chance meeting of a sports legend in the beer tent!
Sporting divisions are designed and set up to cater for all shapes, sizes and levels of play, from the very social “Kaas en Wyn” leagues to the premier leagues where regular club players can take part.
Going into its third year on 1 & 2 September 2018 at the Harlequin Club, we look forward to an even more successful weekend that continues to grow in popularity! With awesome prizes to be won for players and spectator’s on-and-off the field, great live action, awesome bands, celebrities, sports presenters and rugby Legends, why would you want to miss out? Think Hong Kong 7s in Pretoria; lots of people, lots of action and a bucket load of vibe!
