Does your team have the perfect balance of speed, strength, agility, brains and brawn to be crowned the Uitenhage Market Day Boeresport champions?

Uitenhage Round Table 14 in conjunction with the Uitenhage Market Day will be hosting boeresport games at Willow Dam during the next outdoor market day on Sunday, May 7th at 10:30.

Boeresport games are regarded as excellent team building activities loaded with fun and laughter for both participants as well as spectators.

According to Lilly de Jong from the Uitenhage Market, a team should consist of four members. All proceeds of the games will go towards a little girl, Mischa, who suffers from microtia which is a congenital condition in which the ear does not develop properly.

The games will include tug of war, which is an excellent teamwork exercise and it is not always the strongest muscle power team that wins, but often the team with clever tactics and brain power.

An old classic, the three-legged race, is all about cooperation and not speed, as is the wheelbarrow race, potato and spoon race and egg toss and catch.

An all-time favourite is bokdrolspoeg! Here participants have to spit buck or goat droppings and the one who does it the furthest wins. It sounds disgusting but this game is popular and is a skill.

  • A team’s entry fee to participate and stand the chance to be crowned boeresport champions is only R50. For more information contact Kevin on 084 411 9465.
