Personal message

Following on from the success of the Jozi 10s, SA Deaf Rugby will be fielding a side in the Winelands 10s on 3-4 November 2023. The Jozi 10s were the first time a Deaf representative side took part in one of the mainstream 10s tournaments against hearing opponents, and the experience has proven pivotal in growing the game in South Africa. 

Eight of the players selected for this squad will be coming from out of province, however, and that's where we need your help - as amateurs, they cannot cover the costs of flights, accommodation, and transport on their own. With your help, we will continue to inspire the next generation of Deaf athletes, continue to work on raising awareness, and do our part in transforming South African society to be more inclusive.

In the event that we either fail to meet the target, or (fingers crossed!) exceed it, any funds raised will be put towards the costs of our next 10s tournament involvement, as this is intended to be one of our long-term foundations to grow the game.

South African Deaf Rugby Association

South African Deaf Rugby Association Logo

The South African Deaf Rugby Association (SADRA) is an associate member of the South African Rugby Union (SARU), World Deaf Rugby (WDR), SA Deaf Sports Federation, and a registered PBO and NPO. 

Their primary purpose is to support and create opportunities for Deaf and Hard of Hearing (HOH) boys, girls, men, and women to have the chance to play rugby at a provincial and international level. This year, they traveled to Argentina for the World Deaf Sevens Championships, where they placed fourth, with the bonus of their players receiving national colors for the first time. 

They also competed in the Joz1 10s 2023, the offshoot from the Cape Town 10s and brainchild of Robbie Fleck & Bob Skinstad, where they were the first Deaf team globally to play in a hearing competition.
