2018 Stor-Age Old Boys Tens kicks off on 09 November
Excitement is peaking as the 2018 Stor-Age Old Boys Tens (OBX) kicks off at Stor-Age Pirates Rugby Club in Johannesburg on the 9th of November. Over 800 players are expected to compete in the much-loved games of 10-a-side rugby and netball.
The Stor-Age OBX, now in its fifth year, has become one of the highlights on the Johannesburg sporting calendar. Each year an increasing amount of teams get involved, attracted by the excitement, competitiveness and the festival atmosphere that OBX brings.
Comments Chris Oosthuizen, spokesperson for Stor-Age Self Storage, “OBX 2018 is going to be even bigger than last year, with a record number of teams signing up to battle it out on the field and on the court. The event offers a wonderful opportunity for local communities to come together, to celebrate through sport and to raise money for a worthy cause at the same time. It’s not only about the sports teams, as the event is well-attended by families and friends of those competing to join in the festivities through various activities. It’s a great atmosphere, and we are proud to be involved and to have contributed to the growth of the event as title sponsors.”
Comments Marcel Malherbe, OBX Tournament Director, “Stor-Age are more than just sponsors - they are friends, supporters and, most importantly, believers in OBX and its ideals. It’s very hard to find a sponsor that matches your organisational ethos and the Stor-Age/OBX relationship represents what can be done if corporate South Africa engages in nation building.”
Funds raised from the event will be dedicated to transforming education in South Africa by elevating the standards of education in previously disadvantaged communities. Malherbe adds, “We have raised R700 000 over the past four years, in this fifth year we are aiming to raise an additional R300 000.”
Funds raised will be used for the likes of the Mariana Malherbe Bursary which is awarded to a deserving, underprivileged child from the rural farming community of Dordecht in the Eastern Cape to attend Queen’s College Boys High School.
We look forward to an exciting weekend of good-spirited rivalry and exciting sporting action.
