Playing Hockey keeps you fit

enough to climb Table Mountain

Between the 15th and 24th September 2010 the Grand Masters Hockey World Cup is being held in Cape Town. It hasn’t been well advertised but there are 26 teams representing 9 countries here. 3 seperate age groups are represented in the competition. Over 60’s, over 65’s and 70’s.

England is well represented with a team in each age group and several invitational teams as well. Always adventurous, many of the players opted to walk up Table Mountain rather than use the cable car. Even in a howling South Easter, and less than perfect conditions.
