It’s called the ‘Sport of Kings’ with a purpose.
Yes, we’re talking about the Polo tournament to be held over three-days at the Inanda Cub, Sandton from April 15 to 17.
The tourney is part of the development programme by the Inanda Club to provide opportunities for talented, disadvantaged Polo players in South Africa to flex their muscles, stylishly.
The ‘Sport of Kings’, noted for its grace and glamour, generally requires great wealth to progress and grow to higher levels.
The Inanda Development Cup dispels this prerequisite by giving up-and-coming underprivileged talent an opportunity to play Polo in a professional environment.
Participants are drawn from all corners of the country, including a handful of internationals.
“We are incredibly proud to be hosting one of South Africa’s most prestigious tournaments and believe with events such as these, more of the country’s young sporting talents will be encouraged to learn and improve their own skills and capabilities,” says Paul Oosthuizen, Inanda Club General Manager.
The Cup provides a great opportunity to develop and assist young Polo players who otherwise would not be able to afford to compete in the sport.”
The Most Valuable Development Player(MVP) will also have the honour of playing in the curtain-raiser for one of Africa’s most anticipated Polo events – the Land Rover Africa Cup 2016.
Yes, this is a sport befitting Kings and trust the youngsters will live up to it!
