Kenya v SA polo fest to match kings and queens

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS - KARISHMA DIPA

WHILE South Africa and Kenya battle it out on the field, spec­ta­tors are in for a treat as they en­joy the finest that polo has to of­fer at the 110th Prince of Wales Cup.

The Al­lure Life­style mar­quee will once again be hosted at the pres­ti­gious event, to be held in Cen­tu­rion next month.

Al­lure founder Bonnke Shipalana ex­plained it’s all about in­tro­duc­ing an en­tirely new crowd to the sport of polo.

This fits in with the theme “Be Bold. Be You. Be Polo”, where at­ten­dees are en­cour­aged to ar­rive at the Rose­field Polo Club in their glam­orous at­tire as they en­joy the game while so­cial­is­ing and in­dulging in de­lec­ta­ble food.

“The theme for 2017 speaks to Africans ex­plor­ing new life­style spa­ces such as polo, but re­mains true to what de­fines us as kings and queens of Africa,” said Shipalana.

He added that the event was also the perfect op­por­tu­nity to make busi­ness and so­cial con­nec­tions.

While the crowds en­joy the polo at­mos­phere in the mar­quee, Shipalana ex­plained that the polo match be­tween South Africa and Kenya was also sym­bolic.

This was be­cause polo, the “sport of kings”, is not as pop­u­lar in this coun­try as it is in the rest of the con­ti­nent.

There will also be live mu­sic with Bob “The Jam­mer” Mabena on the decks at the Al­lure Lounge af­ter-party.

Tick­ets are still avail­able.
