Yay or neigh?
If you've never experienced the unique the truly unique spectacle that is polo, now is your chance. Bringing together Egypt’s top polo players with their travelled, international counterparts, the very first edition of Kings Polo Gold Cup is set to take place at what has become the home of polo in Egypt – the sprawling 120-acre Kings Polo grounds and facilities in Sheikh Zayed.
Taking place over three days across the long weekend (October 4th–6th), the tournament is shaping up to be a something of a grand, family affair, one that will also offer live entertainment, a special kids area and a certain Razan El Maghrabi taking on the role of MC, as four teams do battle in the free-to-enter event.
The tournament is the latest launched by Kings Polo, following the growing popularity of its annual Kings Silver Cup in El Gouna, which has, since launching in 2017, become a major sporting and social occasion on the Red Sea town's calendar – so much so, in fact, that this year’s edition of the beach polo tournament in April was capped-off with a spectacular after-party featuring performances from US rappers, Nelly and Tyga, and chart-topping dance-pop princess, Inna.
Founded by Egyptian businessman and polo enthusiast, Mohamed El Sewedy, Kings Polo has been established with the aim to reignite Egypt’s love affair with equestrian sports. In addition to housing a world class playing field and Argentine-sourced horses, the Kings Polo academy offers lessons for all ages and levels of experience with the sport, which has suffered in the last two decades from a lack of top-notch facilities.
