Hermanus will once again play host to the annual GetSavvi Walker Bay 7s sporting festival, which will bring together teams from all over South Africa to our picturesque town.

The GetSavvi Walker Bay 7s will cater to men’s and women’s social and league teams in Rugby Sevens, Rugby 10s, Netball, Dodgeball and Hockey. The event will be held at Hermanus High School on 28 September and will also include a variety of ancillary activities including live viewing of World Cup Rugby matches, food, music and beverages.

Tournament Director of the event, Bianca Le Roux says the day promises to be a fun-filled event for sports enthusiasts and spectators alike.

“South Africa has always been an incredible nation that loves its sports and we cannot wait to once again see this enthusiasm on the sports fields of Hermanus,” she added.

GetSavvi Health CEO, Wayne Moosa says they’re thrilled to be a part of an event that promotes health and wellness in the community again.

“At GetSavvi Health we value the integral part that sport and exercise plays in the betterment of our health. We believe in the importance of preventive healthcare, and exercise plays a significant role in this. This is why we’re proud to be sponsoring the GetSavvi Walker Bay 7s,” Moosa said.

To help with the development of sports in the Overberg, GetSavvi Walker Bay 7’s will also host a development clinic the day before the event, on Friday 27 September.

“Stormers Rugby Players, Stings Netball Players and a SA Hockey Coach will offer free development skills training to any young learner in the Overberg that wishes to attend,” Le Roux said. She added that bookings should be made prior to the event and space is limited.

Le Roux feels that the GetSavvi Walker Bay 7’s event has the potential to grow into something special for the entire Overberg region as team entries have almost doubled since 2018.

“It’s a great way to inspire the youth of the Overberg to focus on positive change through sport and community participation,” Le Roux said.

We invite the people of Hermanus to come and support this day and watch some high quality sports.
