About the hockey festival


The Cape Town Hockey Festival was founded in 2003. The festival is owned and managed by TEAM Sports Travel (the leading schools tour operator in South Africa) in the beautiful City of Cape Town and occurs annually in July. The festival has grown immensely over the past 15 years with the standard and quality of the event increasing each year.

The event is annually oversubscribed due to its popularity and the participating teams are now limited to 48 teams split between u18 Boys and Girls.

The teams are made up of both local and international talent, departing from the UK, Zimbabwe, Namibia, and South Africa.
