The Cap Sportif Sport & Charity

Cap Sportif is an informal organisation whose aim is to animate the French-speaking community of sports enthusiasts in and around Cape Town.

Our mission

Cap Sportif is open to all ! Experienced or aspiring sportsmen and women, native French speakers or English speakers sympathetic to French speakers, Cape Town residents or just passing through.

Our mission is organised around three major axes.

Celebrating on Sunday evening

We love it or we hate it, but in any case if we go to the Cape during this event we participate!

Every year, Cap Sportif invites you to join us for the biggest cycling race in the world.

We are securing “charity” places to allow those who would not have a place to participate. Buying your place at the Cycle Tour via Cap Sportif also allows you to participate in the two training sessions organized by the group, but especially to participate in the financing of the jerseys that the association renews every year for the Busy Bees*, and to help pay their coach.
* The Busy Bees is a rugby club from Langa Township (read more)

You can also buy a Cap Sportif jersey to show off the colours of the association and of France during your tour of the peninsula.

The Busy Bees

The association has been supporting RFC Busy Bees rugby club for many years. This club is based in Langa. It was founded in 1923 and is considered by many to be the first ‘black’ rugby club in South Africa. Today they have almost 200 young people of all ages playing.

The Cap Sportif provides financial assistance to pay the salaries of the coaches as well as regular material assistance by renewing some of the shirts that the club provides to the young players.

En During an annual tour in Paarl, the French U18 team came to meet the club and the children of the Siybulela school, who were able to meet the players and receive gifts. A beautiful moment of sharing and joy to relive on video!
