The Cape Town 10s, which is a social sporting and lifestyle event, takes place from Friday February 1 until Saturday 2  at the Hamilton Rugby Club in Green Point Town.

Now in its 11th year, the Cape Town 10s has grown from being a rugby-only tournament to a multi-sport event which also includes netball, dodgeball, beach volleyball, hockey and football. 

This year, the event will add a unique fun run element to the event which will see runners run through another of the city’s amazing venues, the Cape Town Stadium.

Three current Springbok and Stormers legends will also join in the fun. Siya Kolisi, Eben Etsebeth and Scarra Ntubeni will each be coaching their own teams, namely Abantwana Bomgquba, Etsebeth Express and the Ubumbo Legends from their respective home towns.

The City of Cape Town’s Special Events Committee has signed a new three-year agreement with the event organisers, which means that the Cape Town 10s is set to continue until the 2020/21 financial year.
