Mossel Bay organised its first ever sports festival in 2012. It was an immediate success, and, building on the successes of the previous years, Mossel Bay is continuing on this mission with its fourth annual Sports Festival from 24 September 2016 to 8 October 2016.
Together with the annual PetroSA marathon, which will take place on Saturday, 24 September 2016, and Point High KFC Schools Cricket Week, that will be held in Mossel Bay from Sunday, 4 October to Thursday, 8 October 2015, Mossel Bay will have a lot to offer to sports enthusiasts in Spring this year.
The Point High KFC Schools Cricket Festival for under 19 teams, this year in its 19th year, will be another major attraction.
The PetroSA marathon is expected to major drawcard featuring both international and national athletes.
The Festival will present an opportunity for local as well as visiting sportsmen and women to participate in events organised by different sports codes, and for those who are not active in sport to just have a lot of fun.
Because of the ideal sailing conditions in Mossel Bay, the Sports Festival has become synonymous with sailing regattas. Championship events will therefore again form an integral part of the Festival programme this year.
The programme will also include a touchies tournament with good prize money, a motorsport gymkhana, a soccer tournament, bowls, golf, darts, tennis, badminton, chess, bridge, lifesaving and many more.
The Moss Walk over 5 km, another huge attraction at previous Sports Festivals, continues to grow and will again take place on Saturday, 1 October 201.
Make sure that you don’t miss the 2016 Mossel Bay Sports Festival.
