Score, one of South Africa’s most popular energy drinks and supporter of grassroots sport development including touch rugby in the Western Cape, will be a proud flag bearer at the Hot Summer of Touch series during December.
The 17th Hot Summer of Touch series held on the beaches of the Western and Southern Cape coast, consists of eight tournaments kicking off in Camps Bay on 9 December and ending on Diaz Beach in Mossel Bay on 30 December. With over 400 teams taking part in the series, this is a highlight on the holiday calendar.
As the sponsor of four Score Living Legends teams entered each year for the Hot Summer of Touch beach circuit, the energy drink brand helps this Stellenbosch based youth development organisation to double their power in surrounding communities, changing lives through sport.
The Score Living Legends Junior, Open, Ladies and Professional (Pro) teams are all regular participants in the Hot Summer of Touch. Score has played an integral part in supporting these touch rugby teams since 2013.
“It’s an honour for us to play a part in Living Legends’ main focus of contributing toward the empowerment of South African communities. In line with Score’s mantra of ‘double YOUR power’, the brand hopes to inspire people to develop their potential and build better lives for themselves and those around them” says Brand Manager James Shaw, reinforcing Score’s commitment to nurture and support young people to become leaders and make a difference in their own lives and their communities.
Living Legends has identified a passion for touch rugby in the Helderberg area and together with Caylix Sport, offers youths between the ages of 10 and 24 constructive activities, a sense of belonging and hope for the future.
With Score’s support, the interest in touch rugby has grown substantially and the touch rugby culture is now well established in all the areas where Living Legends have a foothold. By supporting Living Legends, Score Energy helps the non-profit organisation untap the potential of young people in the greater Stellenbosch community through the development of sport and life skills.
In the spirit of paying it forward, the Score Living Legends Pro team, victors of the Hot Summer of Touch series for the past four years, will be hosting a rugby clinic in Klein Brak Rivier on 27 December. Inspired by their enthusiastic fan base, the Pro team players have become role models for children in their area and the touch rugby community in the Western Cape as a whole. It is no wonder fans call Score Energy South Africa’s “unity drink”.
