August 4, 2023

Africa’s signature lifestyle event – Standard Bank Joburg Polo in the Park – is back!

African Deluxe Company, the event producers of the Joburg Polo in the Park, have officially confirmed the 2023 edition of the Standard Bank Joburg Polo in the Park. The event is set to take place this September at the Polo Fields, located at the esteemed Inanda Country Base in Kyalami. Ticket sales for the event are opening today.

Back for a third year, the Joburg Polo in the Park was first launched in 2019. The event encapsulates the time-honoured sport of Polo, combining it 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. They host a unique format of Polo featuring only three players aside from an inflatable ball, which is different from the hard ball used in traditional matches. The game captures the imagination of equestrian lovers in grand style, allowing spectators to get close to the exciting action and enjoy all the thrills of the matches.

“We are elated to once again bring polo fans together for this spectacular occasion marked with glamour and luxury at this new space,” says ADC’s Ben Moseme, and he adds, “with Polo being the sport of royalty, the Standard Bank Joburg Polo in the Park delivers when it comes to upholding this regal 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.”
