Newlands, Cape Town – Treble Group was extremely satisfied with the successful execution of the DHL Club Newlands Sleepover, which took place on Friday, February 3, 2017, at the iconic DHL Newlands Rugby Stadium.
The legendary Sleepover event, celebrating over a decade in existence, began with kids being treated to an exclusive training session with some of the DHL Stormers. As the field started to fill up, the energetic group was ushered onto the stands with the help of MC, Carl Wastie from KFM, for a group photo that embodied the camaraderie of the event.
26 members of the DHL Stormers team, including Scarra Ntubeni, Damien De Allende, Juan De Jongh and Eben Etzbeth, joined the children to assist in the short coaching clinic and a game of tag rugby, while parents were engulfed in an insightful War Room session with Coach Paul Feeley and two players. The parents had the opportunity to pose pertinent questions about the upcoming season, strategy and the future of the sport in SA, in the Q&A session.
The War Room was followed by a signing and photo session where the children had the opportunity to engage with their heroes one-on-one while getting their DHL rugby balls signed by the team.
The children received an informative chat around nutrition and fitness before an exciting Play-the-Bounce obstacle course by Brightrock, winning participants awesome spot prizes. The adults wore DHL plane and delivery van suits to participate in the DHL Delivery Run, much to the delight of their children cheering them on from the side lines. Once the grand prize was given to the parent-and-child pair who participated with the most spirit, tents were pitched on the hallowed grounds of DHL Newlands and the braai fires got going to end off the night before lights-out.
Treble would like to thank DHL, Brightrock, Tsogo Sun, Peninsula Beverages, CellC, The Entertainer, Deep Heat, Checkers, DSTV and SA Breweries, whose much-valued contributions added to the awesomeness of the event.
