Harlem Globetrotters trot over to SA!

The world’s premiere basketball exhibition team is returning to South Africa, after almost two decades, to put on their most outrageous show yet.

Harlem Globetrotters captivate their audience with a unique blend of athleticism and theatre, creating a show for the whole family to enjoy. The squad is made up of the world’s most talented male and female basketball athletes, who are well known for their sensational skills both on and off the court. South Africans will get to experience this smashing exhibition, starting on 1 July 2015.

OTR Events 2 (Pty) Ltd is promoting the Harlem Globetrotters Tour, and Treble Group will deliver the management, operations and  production of the tour.

We are proud to be associated with such a unique sporting event, which brings such famous global ambassadors to South Africa.

Africa As One: 26 countries visited, 19 to go!

In the build up to the 2015 Rugby World Cup, the Treble Group are helping DHL Express to pioneer a unique journey throughout Africa, driving 3 Land Rovers through 45 countries over 45 weeks. The aim of this project is to deliver rugby to Africa and Africa to the rugby world and uniting the fans as one.

In each country, the team has spread the love of the game through activations such as rugby clinics and rugby fun days with around 200 to 400 adults and children in attendance.

With 26 activations completed in 26 African countries, we’ve enabled hundreds of children to experience the game first hand and have fun whilst learning valuable life skills.

This week the ball leads the DHL Express team and Louise Otter, our Treble Group representative, to destination 26 – Togo. Togo is, as Louise describes, “a cute, calm, and HOT country!” It is a small country sandwiched between Benin and Ghana, made up of a long beach with beautiful palm trees (planted by DHL!), a colourful culture of people who love to be outdoors, large buildings dotted around the city and a somewhat peaceful environment with not much traffic.

We wish the team all the best as they then head for Benin. Good luck and continue to inspire and unite.

The team have kept us updated on their whereabouts via the DHL Africa Facebook page and have captured the cultures, traditions, magnificent landscapes and rugby activations through their amazing video diaries on their YouTube channel.

Follow this incredible and ambitious journey via their platforms and feel a part of the great African adventure!

Treble activates Captain’s Run and War Room Experience for Cell C

On Friday, 7 May, Club Newlands invited their valued sponsor, Cell C, to the inner sanctum of the DHL Stormers, before their big game against the Brumbies at DHL Newlands.

Cell C and their guests were invited to enjoy a unique occasion that is only available to a few very special people.

They attended the DHL Stormers Captain’s Run. This is the final team training session, normally held a day before kick-off. It is held behind closed doors – not open to the public, nor the media. The Captain decides which specific drills he would like to finesse, while the coaching staff simply looks in, to ensure that everything runs smoothly.

Chippie, the DHL Stormers team manager, made a special appearance and gave the esteemed guests insight into what truly happens behind the scenes when managing a rugby team.

Thereafter, they were invited to join the DHL Stormers War Room experience. This is a unique opportunity where the DHL Stormers head coach, Allister Coetzee, takes you through his thoughts before the big game, and takes the time to give you insight into his plans for such a major game.

We would like to thank Cell C for their continued support of Club Newlands, and we sincerely hope that they enjoyed this incredible and unique experience.
