The J30 tournaments (Junior 30), denoting the tournament’s number of points to be won (in this case, 30 points for the winners), are referred to as J30 Gaborone.

The tournaments have attracted participants from countries such as Zimbabwe, Mozambique, South Africa, Angola, Mozambique, Great Britain, Poland and Australia.

The entrance is free, so we invite the public to come to witness some of our great talents in action. Some of the local players in action will include Mark Nawa, Esi Molefe, Chelsea Chakanyuka and Neo German, who recently represented the country at the African Union Sports Council Region 5 Youth Games in Malawi. Matches will be played between 9 am to 4 pm.
