Cape Town City Challenge 2018

The Cape Town City Challenge took place on Sunday, 20th May at the Sports Science Institute of South Africa. It was a highly enjoyable afternoon after a very slow and quiet start to the Subbuteo year down south!


With the support of visitor Julian from Pretoria Flickers Club, we used the Swiss system for the first time, with the 10 participants playing 6 rounds each. Final standings saw Wayne win his first WASPA event - which just shows what being a new father can do for you…

Other highlights included the presence of new players Juandre and Nathan, ‘new’ returnee to the game Zavick, and the first time that junior Rafael played with (and held his own against) the adults.

Final standings after the six rounds were as follows:
Wayne            6          5          0          1          7          15
John                6          4          1          1          7          13
Clinton            6          4          1          1          6          13
Angus             6          3          2          1          11        11
