Nedbank International Polo 2021 Postponed

As a result of the Covid-19 restrictions placed on the sporting and social calendar in South Africa, the South African Polo Association together with Nedbank has confirmed that the 2021 Nedbank International Polo event will be postponed to the 2nd of April 2022.

All partners and relevant stakeholders jointly agreed that the highly anticipated annual event, which was scheduled to take place at the Inanda Polo Club in September 2021, would not be feasible under the current national lockdown restrictions.

“The Nedbank International Polo has been known as one of the most prestigious equestrian fixtures on the annual sporting calendar. We remain committed to creating experiences for the community, but we want to ensure we are creating an unrivalled experience through a combination of world class hospitality and global sporting excellence,” says Nedbank Group Executive: Marketing and Corporate Affairs, Khensani Nobanda.

“Given the unprecedented circumstances we as a country find ourselves in due to the impact of the global pandemic, we must act responsibly and with the best interest of all involved in this prestigious event. We continue to endorse a safety-first approach and look forward to returning next year with all safety measures in place,” says Russell Watson, President of the South African Polo Association.

The Nedbank International Polo, alongside its valued sponsors and partners, looks forward to welcoming attendees and the international rival team to the shores of South Africa in April 2022.
