What to expect

About the Turke Club & what they do

The Turke Club was established in 1989 by ex sports-men, who resolved to sow back all the years of pleasure that participation in sporting activities had given them. Thus, the Turke Club was created. Our main aim is raising support and awareness for disabled sport. We do this by participating in disabled sporting events as "able bodied" guests, raising funds and simply spending time with the disabled sports men and women.

Donations exceed R 740 000 during the past 23 years and we regularly participate in several activities involving disabled sports.

For more information please visit regarding the organization please visit our official webpage at


The Turke will be hosting the Rustica Waterpoint, featuring Craft beer, Sherry, Boerie Rolls, Snacks and Music.

Stop and have a chat at one of the best waterpoints you have ever seen.
