So have a look through our F1 Racing Calendar 2023 for all the racing dates and where they will be. We also have a guide explaining the F1 Betting Markets.

The Masters: Augusta National GC

Firstly the Tournament is April 6-9,2023. One of the four major championships in professional golf is the Masters Tournament, also known as just The Masters or the U.S. Masters outside of North America. The Masters, the first major of the year, is set for the first full week of April, and unlike the others, it is always played at the same venue: the exclusive Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, in the southeastern United States.

Furthermore one of the best betting sites to consider is Gbets, they have fantastic promotions and some promos specific to Golf.

HSBC 7’s

The World Rugby Sevens Series 2023 is the most competitive and compelling to date with more on the line than ever before. The top four ranked men’s and women’s teams will earn Olympic qualification for Paris 2024, while in the men’s Series, the number of teams for the 2024 Series will reduce from 16 to 12 to equal the number of women’s teams and align with the Olympic competition structure. Fans can expect an intense battle to avoid relegation in the 2024 Series. In April we only see one weekend of 7’s.

Singapore: Will be held 8-9 April 2023 and only the men participate here. Fiji walked away the champs in Singapore 2022 after facing off with New Zealand. Furthermore the Blitzboks normally make it to the top 3 here, what will they do in 2023 to secure victory?

2 Oceans Marathon 2023

On the Saturday of the Easter weekend, Cape Town, South Africa hosts the Two Oceans Marathon, a 56 km (35 miles) ultramarathon and a 21 km half-marathon. The race is held through the Cape Peninsula against a backdrop of breathtaking landscape, earning it the title of “the world’s most beautiful marathon.” So save the date 15 April 2023.

Grand National 2023

The Grand National 2023 is taking place from Thursday April 13 to Saturday April 15 and will offer punters a superb weekend of racing. Day 1 is the opening day with plenty of entertainment, Day 2 is ladies day where there will be the style awards and lots of fashion to looking forward to. Day 3 is Grand National Day and the Main event! Here, fans of racing and fun-seeking activities come together to create an environment unlike any other and an unforgettable experience.

While it’s still a while to go for Africa’s greatest horse racing event the theme of the Hollywoodbets Durban July 2023 has just been announced. It seems we are in for an “Out of his World” event.

London Marathon 2023

The 43rd edition of the yearly London Marathon is scheduled to take place on April 23, 2023. The race will take place in the spring for the first time since 2019, after the COVID-19 epidemic forced the prior three events to take place in the fall.

Snooker World Championship

The World Snooker Championship, a professional snooker competition, will take place in the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield, England, from April 15 to May 1, 2023. This will be the tournament’s 47th straight year there.
