Johan Venter takes the crown

Overstrand took the pool table crown at the 2016 Better Together Games.

Johan Venter from the Overstrand was recently crowned the Pool Table Champion at the 2016 Better Together Games that was held at Boland Park in Worcester on Friday, 14 October.

The momentous win means that Johan qualifies to participate in the annual Corporate Games which will be held in Cape Town later this year.

His success comes at a time where the municipality is also in the process of establishing a Municipal Pool Table Club.

Overstrand participated in various other codes of sport at the 2016 Better Together Games such as touch rugby, golf, netball, and darts.  However, despite their best efforts the netball team only advanced to the quarter finals, while the soccer team were knocked out in the semi-finals.  Moreover, the rugby team unfortunately did not fare much better and were side-lined in the early stages of the tournament.
