Cell C Inanda Africa Cup Polo Tournament

The 2018 Cell C Inanda Africa Cup Polo Tournament, offers an action-packed day with a display of exceptional horsemanship amongst competing teams from Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe, with the closely contested and fast paced final, witnessed by a premium audience of 3500+ people annually.
