Sven Schilling, a happy traveller in South Africa

Still no local winner in Cape Town!

Cape Town Open 2015
15 November 2015
Venue: Sports Science Institute of South Africa (Newlands, Cape Town)

Cape Town City TFC organised the 2nd Cape Town Open Subbuteo tournament at the Sports Science Institute of South Africa, in Newlands, Cape Town. Last year’s winner was Johannesburg-based Clifford Graaff, and this year it was once again won by a visitor - Sven Schilling from Subbuteo Sankt-Pauli in Germany.

There were some very tough games, including a particularly tense semi final between Wayne and Clinton. There were also some big scores - usually handed out by our international visitor, who in this tournament clocked up his 888th tournament game. Sven’s experience showed - on the day, his tactical awareness and accurate flicking saw him dominate his opponents.

As always, a good time was had by all, with much commitment shown to further developing the game in Cape Town.
