There’s a reason why so many people love
Cape Town. Visitors love it for the broad range of things to do while on
holiday. Locals love it because it’s a playground all year round. If you
haven’t experienced its delights, now is the time to find all the things you
love in the city that has something for amateur and professional sportspeople
From the ‘most beautiful marathon in the
world’ to epic MTB races, autumn in Cape Town is sure to push you to your
competitive limits. Thousands of rugby fans fill their home team’s stadium in
winter, while still more supporters gather under the oaks in the city’s
favourite cricket ground in blazing summer heat. Spring time brings yoga into
the open, while stand-up paddlers skim past kayakers on the open water.
If you love sport, Cape Town is firmly
ranked at the top of the premier league of city breaks.
Cape Town is the birthplace of rugby in
South Africa. Its long and proud history of hosting major rugby events
continues today. And international teams always draw ardent fans to the iconic
Newlands cricket grounds. If you prefer to watch four-legged contestants battle
it out on the track, a visit to the country’s most stylish horse-racing events
will show you why it’s called the ‘Sport of Kings’.
Located at the tip of Africa where two
oceans meet, Cape Town is also awash with water sports. Learn to surf, fly a
kite, sail a yacht, stand up and paddle or simply swim lengths in a tidal pool,
feeling the waves break over the tidal wall. Or dive into the depths to see
seals in their natural habitat and explore ghostly shipwrecks on the sea bed.
Climb over rocks on walls indoors or
clamber up mountain gorges. Shift your energy in a tai chi class or salute the
sun in a yoga session. Get pumped on an outdoor gym or chase down the enemy in
a paintball war. And with so many courses and driving ranges to choose from,
you’ll have plenty of places to chip away at your golf handicap.
With all this and more on offer, what’s not
to love? Ultimately, experiencing Cape Town is about doing what you love,
