Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup
HRH Prince Harry, Nacho Figueras and Malcolm Borwick will headline the 2016 Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup in Florida on Wednesday 4 May in a fundraising effort in support of Sentebale, a charity founded by Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho in 2006 to help the most vulnerable children in Lesotho get the support they need to lead healthy and productive lives. Sentebale works with local grassroots organizations to help these children who are the victims of extreme poverty and Lesotho’s HIV/AIDS epidemic.
Sentebale was co-founded by HRH Prince Henry of Wales and HRH Prince Seeiso Bereng Seeiso of Lesotho in honour of their mothers, Diana, Princess of Wales and Queen ‘Mamohato Bereng Seeiso, respectively.
The Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup 2016 will take place at Valiente Polo Farm by invitation only. There will be three teams taking part in a round robin tournament. Prince Harry will lead the Sentebale ISPS Handa team, playing against Argentine polo player and Sentebale Ambassador, Nacho Figueras and Royal Salute’s World Polo Ambassador Malcolm Borwick. Royal Salute will host distinguished guests and raise an official toast to Prince Harry and players while enjoying exhibition polo at its finest.
Polo Times’ sister publication, The Polo Magazine is delighted to be Sentebale’s Official Media Partner, producing its Polo programme for this year’s event.
