Autumn Treble Talks Newsletter

Greetings from the Treble Team,

Autumn is here – a busy time for our team with several events and activations on the go and the beginning of autumn saw the 2024 DHL Lifesaving South African Championships in full swing at Addington Beach – situated near uShaka along Durban’s iconic beachfront and promenade.

As the exclusive commercial and marketing agency to DHL Lifesaving South Africa, while also being the brand activation agency for DHL Express in Sub-Saharan Africa, the Treble Group worked tirelessly to deliver this world-class lifesaving event.

With several months of pre-planning and working behind the scenes, it was richly rewarding to see months of event planning coming to fruition as 1200 of South Africa’s lifesaving specialists – from Nippers to Masters – competed at Marine Surf Lifesaving Club, with the pool events being staged at King’s Park Swimming Pool.

The National Champs brings families from across the country in a celebration and culmination of the Lifesaving season, where community and camaraderie play a huge role in making this event so unique – and one close to the Treble Team’s hearts.


PRESCIENT FREEDOM PADDLE

The eagerly anticipated Prescient Freedom Paddle took centre stage on 27 April, which appropriately celebrates South Africa’s Freedom Day with a paddle around the iconic Robben Island.

Always seeking to raise the bar, Treble, and the event organisers, together with title sponsor, Prescient, and other long-term sponsors, have continued to make the event accessible to a wide variety of ocean paddle craft after introducing a short course in 2023. This ensures the Prescient Freedom Paddle becomes more accessible to the wider paddling community and we are proud to see it going from strength to strength.

Special Moment for Treble

Humbled and over-awed was the reaction of Springbok captain Siya Kolisi when he walked out of customs to a united South Africa, where thousands of Springbok supporters were there to welcome their heroes at OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg on Tuesday evening.

Kolisi and South Africa’s Director of Rugby, Rassie Erasmus, whose flight via Sydney was delayed by a few hours, walked through the main arrivals hall, which erupted with thunderous cheers when the Bok captain walked through the doors carrying the Webb Ellis Cup.

This is only the beginning of what will be reminiscent of scenes in 1995 and 2007. Treble worked closely together with SA Rugby to successfully organise the Trophy Tour after Jake White and John Smit brought the Webb Ellis Cup following the Boks’ 15-6 win over England in Paris.

It’s our time again, and once again Treble has been tasked with ensuring that millions of South Africans get to see their heroes parade world rugby’s greatest prize. The planning of this project is mammoth and there is very little time to waste. But Treble’s experienced team will strive to ensure that South Africa shares this special moment with their heroes

No rugby team on the planet can eclipse the unification and nation-building that this little golden cup brings to South Africa. Treble has had first-hand experience of this for the entire duration of the tournament.

Treble’s management of Boktowns across the country, and through one of our valued accounts, namely the Springbok Supporters Club, we have seen South Africans from all walks of life unite. The Springbok Supporters Club is owned by South African Rugby Union (SARU) (51 percent) and Treble (49 percent).

Springbok Supporters’ Club account manager, Carmen Taylor, has been overawed by the power of rugby to unite all South Africans. “The Springboks have raised the hopes of a nation and united South Africans globally. We stand proudly behind the Boks and throughout the Rugby World Cup the Springbok Supporters Club has been in the front row rallying the support of the fans.

“With eleven official Boktown venues, Treble has seen thousands of Springbok fans gather to watch the games on the big screens. The atmosphere at Boktowns has been electrifying and we continue to drive the passion of the fans as we celebrate with the Boks on their victory parade.

The trophy tour kicks off in Gauteng on Thursday, 7 November, with the Bok bus travelling through parts of Pretoria, Johannesburg and Soweto.

On Friday (8 November) the Boks will be in Durban, followed by stops in East London (Saturday 9 November), Port Elizabeth (Sunday 10 November) and Cape Town (Monday 11 November).
