ABOUT 10s SPORTS

Cape Town 10s is South Africa’s biggest social sport and lifestyle event, having recently won the 2016 Discovery Sport Industry Award for “Best Live Experience” in South Africa.

It is the brainchild of rugby legends Bob Skinstad and Robbie Fleck and long-standing mate Ron Rutland. Founded in 2008, starting off as a rugby only tournament the event has since evolved into a multi-sport event, with the addition of Netball in 2013 and Beach Volleyball in 2016 and now Dodgeball for 2017.

The rugby component of 10s is billed as the biggest ten-a-side rugby tournament in the world, designed for fun but still underpinned by national and international rugby federation rules. The event has, over the years, featured some of the world’s greatest International rugby legends including Jonah Lomu, Carlos Spencer and Christian Cullen, as well as other global sporting stars such as Graeme Smith and Justin Kemp.

2017 will mark the 9th consecutive year of the event. The 2016 Cape Town 10s event had 100 rugby teams, 40 netball teams and 40 volleyball teams, from all over South Africa and abroad, taking part.

The Cape Town 10s is not just about the sporting action, it is also one big jol featuring some of the country’s biggest and most popular music acts as well as hosting Africa’s largest beer tent. Thousands of fans and squads gather from across the globe to play their favourite sports and to experience the vibe of 10s that is underpinned by fun, friendships, sports and a couple of cold ones.

ABOUT 10s RUGBY

Rugby 10s is said to have originated in Malaysia (a nation that is yet to make its debut at the Rugby World Cup). Cape Town 10s rugby provides a platform for social rugby to be showcased and allow the non professional players to compete socially in a sport they enjoy.

The rules are very similar to those of rugby sevens, but teams consist of 20 players, with 10 players on the field at a time (usually five forwards and five backs), and games typically consist of two 9 minute halves with a 2 minute half time.

Beach Volleyball was introduced into Cape Town 10s this year, and was a massive success!

Cape Town 10s beach volleyball teams consist of a maximum of 8 players with 5 players on court at a time. Teams are also mixed in terms of gender.
