Blouberg Summer Tournament 2017



A wonderful afternoon’s play was hosted by Rob Matthews at Life Changers Church in Blouberg.
The games were short (12 mins), and played only on Subbuteo pitches. The event was won by newcomer Heimo Schulzer, who edged out David Wegerle on penalties. This was a reversal of their earlier group-stage play-off, in which David had beaten Heimo on penalties to top their group.

It was great to welcome other newcomers Andrew, Bart and Donald. The junior event saw a good turnout of 9 players, and was held on smaller pitches, in a 7-a-side format. It was eventually won by Rafael, after a tense penalty shoot-out with Andy. Best of all was seeing the enthusiasm and intensity of play amongst the juniors.
