The glamorous t Nigerian National Polo Tour that galloped off with fanfare and pomp at the prestigious Niger Delta Polo festival in Port Harcourt last January has taken a deserved break till May, after months of bumper-to-bumper road trips.
Polo Royals report that apart from allowing the Christian and the Muslim community enough time to observe their religious Easter and Ramadan fasting period, the break period will afford polo clubs like Ibadan, Zaria, Abuja and Fifth Chukker Polo & Country Resort in Kaduna the needed time to prepare ahead of their 2023 tournaments.
Reputed for its cutting-edge competition, the national tour took the cream of Nigerian polo stars through Kano, Bauchi, Yola, Kaduna, Abuja, Jos and Port Harcourt, before making a splashing landfall in Lagos last month.
The recently concluded 2023 Lagos International Polo Tournament where a record 36 teams fortified with foreign professionals and the best of Nigerian stars jostle for honours, was the last event on the southern leg of the tour, before the tour heads for its savanna season.
