THE Greyvensteins Attorneys Pam Golding Touchies Tournament is back for a third time and already promising to be bigger and better than ever.

Although the tournament is only scheduled to take place next month, they have already managed to book the maximum number of teams to compete.

Comprising a total of 60 teams, each containing eight members, it is one of the biggest touch rugby tournaments in South Africa.

In addition to teams from Nelson Mandela Bay, there will also be teams from Johannesburg, George and Grahamstown competing in the tournament. A few well-known rugby players, such as Fabian Juries, Justin Peach, Curwin Bosch and Vleis Engelbrecht, have participated in previous tournaments.

According to event organiser, Christo Botha from 1Touch, some of the teams that signed up for the touch rugby tournament seem very interesting.

“A few of the interesting teams that signed up are the Benchwarmers, Drunken Idiots, Blitz Boys, Beer Pressure, George Wille Honne, Bal Grabbers, Whooha Tigers and Touch Masters.”

The day promises to be filled with non-stop rugby excitement.

A total of 480 players will be playing 136 matches in six different divisions on four separate fields.

The different divisions are pro, semi-pro, beer, veterans, rookie and U/13 league.

The winners of the pro division will walk away with the R4 000 cash prize.

Junior players need not feel left out as the Future Kings will host a rugby day especially for them.

Living Brands will also have two physiotherapists on duty at the event to assist with any injuries.

The Greyvensteins Attorneys Pam Golding Touchies Tournament will take place on Saturday at Charlo Primary School and the first of the 136 matches will kick off at 7am.

Entry for spectators is free. Refreshments will be sold.
