by | Nov 29, 2023 | Entertainment

Global, team based fitness competition Turf Games is hosting its first event in South Africa on the 9th and 10th December.

The event which takes place in the UK, Australia and the UAE has finally selected its piece of Turf in Cape Town for the latest in its global remit of events.

Held alongside the HSBC SVNS Tournament at Green Point Cricket Club, Cape Town is the first event in this new partnership for the 23/24 season. The competition sees teams of 4 athletes across Everyday, Intermediate and Elite divisions battle it out over a series of workouts.

What is Turf Games?

It is a team based functional fitness competition which began in London in 2018, and now hosts competitions all over the world including Dubai, Sydney, Gold Coast, London, Dublin and more. More than 10,000 athletes have already taken part in a Turf Games comp this year and Cape Town will be the last event in the 2023 schedule.

So are Turf comps different to CF comps? The workouts at Turf are all built around teamwork – how to use your team’s strengths and weaknesses – to maximise your score – all whilst having fun! The core of the workouts are based around – strength, conditioning and power – and won’t feature any high skilled gymnastics or complex olympic lifting movements. You won’t be seeing any handstands, muscle ups, overhead squats, max barbell 1RM snatches – just good old fashioned hard work, determination and team tactics. The workouts are fun, challenging yet rewarding all at the same time. If you’ve been training hard then now is the time to put all that into practice on the Turf.

You may be wondering who can enter a Turf Games? There are 3 divisions to choose from, based on your level and why you want to take part. This means there is always a wide variety of people entering from those who train at their local hiit studio or F45 a couple of times a week to those stepping up their training at functional fitness gyms, and those training at CF Boxes as well as professional athletes.
