Union Events

Old Boys are invited to support Rondebosch during sports events, Old Boys’ Union gatherings and when the Rondebosch teams go on tour. Please join us at our events to socialise with other Old Boys and support the Rondebosch Boys’ Schools.

Prep & High School sports fixtures were cancelled in 2020, but fortunately some matches were played during 2021, but without spectators. Old Boys’ Union events, including E-year reunions, will not be possible until the lockdown restrictions have been significantly lifted.

Sports: The Old Boys were scheduled to play football, hockey and squash against the RBHS senior teams in late August 2020.  As the year progressed it became clear that it was unfortunately not be possible due to the Covid-19 restrictions.  The same applied to the 2021 cricket, tennis, basketball & water polo matches versus the school boys.  We await 2022….

Quad Golf: The annual Quad Golf between Rondebosch, Bishops, SACS & Wynberg Old Boys was cancelled in 2020 & 2021.  It may be possible to play again in 2022.

Walker Cup Golf: The 2021 fixture between Rondebosch & Bishops Old Boys was cancelled, but we look forward to the 2022 event – scheduled for 24 March.

Old Boys’ Union dinner:  Given the regulations, restrictions, curfew and in particular the wide range of ages (18 to 85+), health circumstances and social groups of those attending the Old Boys’ Union annual dinner, the decision was made to cancel the 2021 dinner – the first time this has been necessary in well over a century.  We await the lifting of restrictions in 2022…
