McKenzie Life Subbuteo Cup 2016

Back row: Mike, Grant, Clinton, Wayne, John. In front: Mikael, Rafael, Tarek.
Sunday 6th March saw Cape Town’s inaugural McKenzie Life Subbuteo Cup. It was wonderfully hosted in a lovely venue - which amongst other things allowed for dips in the pool between games :)

There were many really tight matches, and some fantastic goals - some of which we wished we could have captured on camera!

This was the second time that Cape Town Subbuteo has had a separate u11 category at a tournament, and we will endeavour this year to grow these numbers. It’s great to see the kids enjoying themselves so much with something that does not involve a screen…!

Another huge thank you to Wayne McKenzie and to McKenzie Life, for the wonderful afternoon (and for by far the best prizes we’ve ever seen at a Cape Town event!) They have set a standard which will be tough to live up to.
