Cementing it as the Sport of Kings”, as the game of polo is labelled, in a society that characterises its glamorous association where one may not immediately recognise that the equestrian sport has incredibly effective tools to inspire, educate, and motivate need-based polo players. In the heart of Sandton however, at the Inanda Club,
a shift is happening.
Breaking down the narrative of exclusivity that surrounds the sport, Sunday 28 July 2019 marks an unearthing future for aspirant polo players who will participate in the Inanda Development Cup, brought to you by Aon, a platform dedicated to talented and underprivileged players.
Demonstrating discipline and commitment to the sport, Joe Sello (-1) Thokozane Zondo (1) Donono Lithula (2) and Zompie Tsotesti (2) will compete in a three-day tournament.
“The strong development component of the cup is of great importance as it introduces a diverse group of young, up and coming South African talent to the world of polo. As an organisation we believe in empowering this possibility” states Leo Morwe CHRO & Regional Executive at Aon South Africa.
Polo is a sport that requires an extensive amount of practice, throwing in its complexities, polo becomes a rough and hard sport that requires both precision and tactics as well as gladiatorial combativeness.
“Since 2015 the Inanda Development Cup has given a platform to aspirant polo players to participate in the sport offering the opportunity of becoming true professionals. Showcasing not only the sport of polo but most importantly, the development of players who serve as motivation in changing the perception of the sport” Craig James, Inanda Club Polo Manager
