Cape Town - A carnival atmosphere is expected at this year's Cape Town Sixes - an amateur tournament that has attracted hundreds of players.

Now in its fourth year, the event will take place on the weekend of February 22-24 at Green Point Cricket Club. 

For the first time, a stand alone junior league as well as women's cricket will be included while there is also a Fives football tournament. 

In total, the weekend will see over 1 000 people of all ages playing sport at the festival. 

There are 40 senior cricket sides, 16 junior cricket sides and over 50 football teams. 

Former Proteas Allan Donald, Jacques Rudolph, Meyrick Pringle and Brett Schultz will be playing for a SA Cricket Legends side that will be operating in the corporate league. 

"Our three major focuses are sport, culture and community," event organiser Sean Young said on Friday. 

"Giving back and developing the game of cricket is what Cape Town Sixes is all about. Our CSR initiative - #HitPovertyForASix - will be running various cricket coaching clinics leading up to the main event."

In addition to the cricket, there will also be live music throughout the weekend as well as food stalls and craft beer. 

While the corporate league is fully booked, Young confirmed that there are still spots available in the social league.
