Lunga to host the prestigious Cell-C Inanda Africa Polo Cup

This is the theme for this years’ prestigious polo tournament on the African sporting and social calendar, the Cell C Inanda Africa Cup, scheduled for June 16 at the Inanda Club in Sandton.

African polo playing countries; Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe will partake in an enthralling weekend of polo and glamour, packed with red carpet moments shared with many of Mzansi’s A-listers.

This years’ theme represent vibrancy of Africa, taking inspiration from Africa’s iconic fashion designers and crafters who unleash a riot of colour, texture and bold ethnic patterns; a bold response to Africa and its authenticity.

And to add cherry on top of the cake former SABC 1 continuity presenter Lunga Shabalala is the MC for the event,  and will award guests attending the event in categories such as ‘Best Dressed Female’, ‘Best Dressed Male’, ‘Best Dressed Couple’ and ‘Best Dressed to the Theme On The Day’ with prizes.

“This opportunity could not have come at a better time; it is polo season in Johannesburg and I am really honored to be part of this spectacle. I am looking forward to the tournament and the lifestyle prize giving session which will contribute to being one of the many highlights of the day,” comments Shabalala.

The best players from the Continent will have the opportunity of playing on some of the finest polo ponies in the country. It is a known fact that an average rider with a brilliant horse can play much better than his actual skill level, while the best player in the world cannot achieve much with the wrong horse.

For polo, the speed and agility of the horses is just as vital as the ball skills, horsemanship and talent of the polo player. 

The polo is the perfect event for networking, socializing and meeting old pals!

The 16th June will be a truly exceptional experience for guests, players and club members. No doubt the fervor experienced on and off the field will be widely noticeable throughout the day,” says Paul Oosthuizen, Inanda Club General Manager.
