Sports, Outdoors & Wellness

Sport is hugely popular in South Africa, and Joburg reflects that - the only city with two stadia hosting matches in the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Each weekend you can find sports enthusiasts playing matches at their schools or local clubs, or piling into venues to watch the game live or on big screens.

The three major sports, cricket, rugby and soccer, have a massive fan base that take their sport very seriously. For many, sport is a source of bursting pride and joy.
Golf is a popular recreational sport and lush green courses wind through the city like lungs, with some lifestyle estates being built so enthusiasts can live near a course. Call ahead to check the rules for visitors.
Joburg’s climate makes jogging popular year-round, and early on Sunday mornings the cyclists own the road, especially in the lead-up to the Momentum 94.7 Cycle Challenge in November.
Gyms are packed before and after work around the city, so if you’re in Joburg on holiday, try to go between 9am and 4pm. The Virgin Active and Planet Fitness chains have gyms all over, and personal trainers available. There are many small private gyms as well as yoga, pilates, karate and taekwondo studios.
