Lagos international Polo tournaments is about to kick off.All is now set for the game many refer to as the sport of the rich and famous.According to information available to www.niyitabiti.blogspot.com
the games will start on Wednesday February 10 at the Polo ground,Ikoyi,Lagos.
I took my time to visit the polo ground in preparation of the 2016 Polo Tournaments on Monday February 9,2016 and I was very
impressed at the re turfing of the field.Now, i see why the polo club had to work on the place and suspend tournaments for 2 years.
Ade Laoye, said he is honoured that he is the president of the club at this time of transition and development.He said he is proud of the various committees have been able to achieve since they started work in July 2015.
By the way, we saw the tournaments manager, Bode Makanjuola
supervising last minute work on the field on Monday.
I know many people will be there to see brave men doing their thing on field. By the way, i must not forget to inform you that GTBANK
and MTN are the main sponsors.They are proudly supported by Union Bank and others.
Spraying unlimited top polo players and socialites Naira rain on King Sunny Ade
Most people consider it as the sport of rich and famous.I believe them, some horses cost as much as 6 million,7 million Naira. I confirmed some of the prices at the Polo Club on Monday.
Aside the money aspect, i see Polo as the game of brave men and women.Its not easy riding those horses and playing games on them.
You must be brave. Those horses don’t know if your father is Dangote or Otedola,they respect nobody. If you don’t handle them well, they can throw the player off balance and even march the person.
But if you play well,part of the benefits is that those high class girls who come there to watch or do something else, will cheer you up!
Hoping that one day, i will show off my bravery.I am stronger than you think!lol
