AFRICA’S SIGNATURE LIFESTYLE EVENT ‘JOBURG POLO IN THE PARK’ IS BACK

Johannesburg, South Africa 3 August 2023 – African Deluxe Company, event producers of the Joburg Polo in the Park, today officially confirmed the 2023 edition of the Standard Bank Joburg Polo in the Park set to take place this September at the Polo Fields at the esteemed Inanda Country Base in Kyalami, with tickets sales opening today.

Back for a third year, the Joburg Polo in the Park first launched in 2019, encapsulating the time-honoured sport of Polo with high fashion, good music and delectable gourmet food and drink.

The Standard Bank Joburg Polo in the Park offers a delightful way to enjoy the sport of kings as they host a unique format of polo featuring only three players aside from an inflatable ball, unlike the hard ball used in traditional matches. The game captures the imagination of equestrian lovers in grand style, allowing spectators to get up close to the exciting action while enjoying all the thrills of the matches.
      
       “We are elated to once again bring polo fans back together again for this spectacular occasion marked with glamour and luxury at this new space,” 
says ADC’s Ben Moseme and adds, “With Polo being the sport of royalty, the Standard Bank Joburg Polo in the Park delivers when it comes to upholding this regal upstanding image. And as always we benchmark this annual lifestyle event against internationally respected polo tournaments to ensure we are aligned if not ahead of our global counterparts. Combining the game with high fashion, engaging live entertainment and world class catering options, helps us create an unforgettable experience for all who attend.”
