One of the country’s most sophisticated social and sporting occasions returns this Saturday, 14 September when local and international guests will gather to enjoy the prestigious Nedbank International Polo at Johannesburg’s Inanda Polo Club.
The Nedbank International Polo is one of the longest running polo tournaments in Southern Africa and brings the exclusive polo community together in a premium sporting experience for a fixture synonymous with elegance and congenial hospitality.
