The George Tens is set to become one of South Africa’s biggest social sport and lifestyle event.

Kicking off in 2019 as a rugby-only festival, the event is now set to include trail running, mountain biking, men's and women's rugby, golf, netball and lawn bowls.

Presented in collaboration with the George Municipality the festival will be returning to Outeniqua Park and surrounds, from December 2 - 5.

Co-founded by former Springbok Coach Heyneke Meyer and IG van der Merwe, the event is proud to welcome some of the country’s biggest sporting icons as ambassadors including Victor Matfield, Ernie Els and AB De Villiers.

Team registrations are open for the three-day golf tournament, taking place on Kingswood Golf Estate, George Golf Club and Oubaai Golf Estate & Spa, December 2 to 4. (Teams can opt to enter for the on-day tournaments, on the course of their choosing).

The two-day bowls tournament will take place on the Outeniqua- and George Bowls Club grounds on December 3 and 4. The netball and women’s and men’s rugby tournaments will be held at Outeniqua Park on December 3, 4 and 5.

The mountain biking and trail running events, on December 4 and 5, respectively, will take place on trails which boast some of the most awe-inspiring views and the picturesque landscape of the Garden Route.

“The George Municipality is delighted to support this important and exciting event and I encourage all roleplayers in the George economic community to get behind this initiative,” said council member Dirk Wessels.

“Working with Heyneke Meyer is a delight and we remain committed to our cause in identifying new events in order to stimulate and develop the George economy “

Meyer reiterates, “I am grateful for the support from the George Municipality and that of the George community. One of the elements I’m most looking forward to is how the local community will benefit from George Tens. Like many local tourism industries, they've been hard-hit by lockdown and we’re optimistic that this beautiful town and the surrounding areas will benefit greatly.”
