Nyota is the name of the NCTFC mascot – and what a cracking name!



Triumphant Nyota


In 2011 at the Presentation Night and AGM, Ninja Cats Touch Football Club asked our members to submit nominations to name our mascot and make him a man (or Cat) of the people! All members who were present on the night were handed a voting slip with all the nominations written on it! After a tense voting period, we had our very clear winner – Nyota!

Garth Worboys and Gemma Myers combined to provide us with the name “Nyota”, which means “star” in Swahili, which beat out several other well-considered names. For their efforts in submitting a name, they were rewarded with a credit voucher to the excellent Ninja Cats Merchandise Store and our undying gratitude for naming our beloved mascot!




If you would like to request Nyota to appear at your function, school, birthday party or ideally a Touch Football event, please let us know! Email ninjacatstfc@hotmail.com
