St Joseph’s Special School in Montana Table Cricket Handover

The Lords Taverners handed over a Table Cricket Table to St Joseph’s Special School in Montana, Cape Town. Bradlyn Stuurman from Sporting Chance coaching showed the learners and the school’s teachers and coaches how the game is played.

(16 February 2018. Cape Town.) Learners at St Joseph’s Special School in Montana, Cape Town, were thrilled to receive a Table Cricket Table from the Lord’s Taverners yesterday, sponsored by The Kove Collection. St Joseph’s Special School caters for chronically ill children and children with special education needs, and having Table Cricket at their school means they will be able to participate in a competitive sport, which for many of them would otherwise not be possible.

Stephan Delport, Sales Manager of the Alphen Boutique Hotel, which is part of the Kove Collection, presented the table to school Principal Carla Paulse, excited learners and teachers. Bradlyn Stuurman from Sporting Chance, Sports Coaching and Development, was on hand to teach how the game is played. The Table Cricket sponsorship includes four weeks of coaching by Sporting Chance, as it is essential that the teachers, sports coaches and occupational therapists from the schools receiving the Table Cricket, are empowered to make full use of the game and its benefits.

Principal Paulse said that the game of Table Cricket is ideal, in that it is fully inclusive and children in wheelchairs and those with Haemophilia can take part – no child is left behind. Read more St Joseph’s Special School in Montana Table Cricket Handover

Bot River winemakers bull-ish about 2018 Barrels & Beards

Local is lekker at this most beloved wine and food get-together

21 April 2018

Run with the bull this year at none other than Bot River Barrels & Beards on Saturday, April 21, when – for the first time ever – this most majestic beast takes centre stage at a Cape winelands shindig like no other.

No, of course there won’t be any actual el-toro running in the Pamplonic sense (although the antics of the valley’s famously game winemakers may qualify). This whole shebang is an invitation to party, party, party; make new friends; celebrate the end of another bountiful grape harvest; and, do some good in the process.
