35th Annual Tournament
"EVEN WHEN I AM OLD AND GREY, I WON'T BE ABLE TO PLAY IT BUT I'LL STILL LOVE THE GAME"
This year’s tournament is being held in Johannesburg, Jozi as it’s known…The city that never sleeps and the heartbeat of Southern Africa. Despite being such a Commercial hotspot, Johannesburg’s suburbs are beautiful and its landscapes scenic. In fact, there are more than 6 million trees in Jozi, making for lush, pretty surrounds.
We invite you to visit the KLIPRIVIERSBERG NATURE RESERVE during your stay as it is located next to our games venue, Kibler Park Recreation Centre. The reserve is home to 650 species of indigenous plants and trees, wildlife like zebra, red hartebeest, porcupines, blesbok, springbok and many others as well as 170 bird species. Guided walks from 5Km – 9km can be arranged. Johannesburg South is full of history. So, if you have time to spare from your games or you decide to stay that extra day, there are countless attractions not to be missed; GOLD REEF CITY THEME PARK & CASINO, APARTHEID MUSEUM, SOCCER CITY, VILAKAZI STREET (original homes of Madiba and Bishop Tutu), etc.
