Great sports at the first J’Bay Carnival

Jaco Vlok, Christo Botha, Magriet and Marius Ferreira, Anene Jonck and Reggie Bezuidenhout get set for the first J'Bay Beach Carnival.

A SKYDIVING Easter bunny, action-packed beach sports and kiddies fun galore will keep holiday-makers entertained at the first J’Bay Beach Carnival this weekend.

Kouga Executive Mayor Horatio Hendricks said the bulk of the action will take place at Dolphin Beach, Jeffreys Bay.

“The programme includes the inaugural Je’Vista One Touch tournament, the first-ever beach netball tourney of its kind in South Africa and a feast of children’s activities, which young ones will be able to enjoy for free on the Saturday,” he said.

“Football fans are also in for a treat, with the J’Bay Easter Tournament taking place at the Tokyo Sexwale Sports Stadium and Jeffreys Bay Comprehensive High School for the duration of the long weekend.”

The Carnival will kick off on Friday, 19 April, with the Kouga Beach Netball Tournament.

“It is netball as never before seen in South Africa,” said Anina Vlok, chairperson of the Sarah Baartman Netball Association.

“It is played on a half court and with only one goal post. There are six players per team, with only four allowed on the court at any given time.”

She said teams would play in four categories - Senior Women, Senior Mixed, Junior Girls and Junior Mixed, with the senior teams playing for a first prize of R5000 and the juniors for R3000.

The netball will take place on both Friday and Saturday. Registration is from 7am to 9am on the Friday at Je’Vista.

Touch rugby will be added to the sports mix on Saturday when the inaugural Je’Vista One Touch tournament kicks off at 9am.

Organiser Christo Botha, of 1Touch, said up to 32 teams, each consisting of eight players, were expected.

“It’s going to be a fantastic tournament, with lots of thrills and spills for spectators to enjoy,” he said.

“A highlight will be a fun match between the Je’Vista Legends and Kouga Legends, to be played just after the semi-finals to give the top two teams a breather before the ultimate decider.”   

Teams can register from 7am to 8am at Je’Vista on the day.

Mayor Hendricks said the Saturday programme would also include free children’s entertainment along the beachfront and a visit by the Easter bunny, who will arrive via parachute at about 12 noon.

The J’Bay Easter Tournament, hosted by Reggie’s Academy, will round off the Carnival sports mix. The action takes place from 9am till late, Friday to Monday, at the Tokyo Sexwale Sports Stadium and Jeffreys Bay Comprehensive High School.
