South African’s are known to love cricket, rugby and – as they proved during the recent World Cup – soccer. But there are several other sports that South Africans also love. Springbok Casino has put together a collection of stories and videos exploring some of South Africa’s favorite sports
“We’re not just a nation of soccer, cricket and rugby players,” said Springbok’s manager, Daniel van Wyck. “South Africans are also into tennis, cycling and – my personal favorite — surfing!”
Rugby is one of the ‘Big 3’ in South African sports. The national rugby team is nicknamed Springboks. Springbok Casino’s rugby articles include a video showing what makes the Springboks, the country’s rugby team, so popular.
Introduced by the British, cricket is the second most popular sport in the country. Today, South Africa plays a huge role in the global cricket scene, being a full member of the International Cricket Council (ICC).
Tennis is increasingly popular in South Africa. Roger Federer’s mother was born in Joburg and he credits the family trips to SA for inspiring him to start a foundation to help the less fortunate. Springbok’s tennis page features a video of The Best Tennis Shots Ever.
Not surprisingly (since the country boasts some of the most beautiful golf courses in the world) South Africans are very fond of golf. They do very well in this classy outdoor sport thanks to great weather all year round, good coaching and access to golf courses for young golfers. A video on Springbok’s golf page shows some amazing recovery shots on the PGA tour.
The country’s magical 2000 km coastline and legendary waves give it some of the best surfing spots in the world, so South African surfers devote a lot of time and energy to riding the waves. Springbok’s SA Sports pages include a short documentary video about South African surfer, Slade Prestwich.
