Festival Info

Ethos and atmosphere:

We are committed to encouraging an impeccable standard of sportsmanship on and off the field or court. We invite all our visiting teams to enter into this spirit and extend this request to all parents who might be visiting and supporting.


We will have to have a different approach to your bookings following these turbulent times. Our business can no longer afford to carry the risk and outlay of booking your accommodation and paying all the deposits upfront.

I am still available to help you find the perfect spot at a great special rate, as I still have all the contacts and historical relationships, but I would like the accommodation establishments to invoice you directly. After that, you will be able to deal directly with them regarding your final numbers and any changes, as well as when you make payment. You are also more than welcome to make your own accommodation arrangements.

Our selected accommodation establishments are suitable for groups; have all hosted many of our tours in the past and are proven favourites with touring sports teams. Contact me for an update on what accommodation is still available and I can help match you with a venue that will suit your groups' specific requirements and budget.

As in the past, your breakfast will be included and provided by your accommodation establishment (unless stated/requested otherwise). Lunches are included in your Festival Fee and provided by various vending vans (salad rolls, boerie rolls, burgers, wraps, cooldrinks & tuck/coffee) at the fields/courts. Dinners are not included. Please allow for this in your school budget. You could order take-aways and either eat at your accommodation or go to the beach for a picnic; or make a booking at one of the many restaurants in town and eat out, or you could plan to shop and have a team/parent braai.

There will be a coffee vendor and tuck shop at the fields/courts, where we hope the parents will support the local vendors for their meals and refreshments.

Fixtures are determined once the entries for an event are finalised. We try and ensure that teams don't meet those opponents that they play during the season at home and will do our best to accommodate special requests. Ideally, we have teams from the EP play those from the WP as far as possible.

Provisional fixtures are distributed before your tour and we will discuss and finalise these at the managers meeting when you arrive.
