“It was great to bring back live polo action to the city after the pandemic-induced lockdown, including the first Lawyers Cup in Mumbai. We made sure that all SOPs were in place as the safety of the players, members, audience, and guests are of utmost importance to us. The polo season concluded with an amazing game. We look forward to more,” said ARC president Shyam Mehta.
Maintaining all the government mandated SOPs following Covid-19, ARC brought back live sporting action in the heart of the city in late 2020 and even attracted foreign players who had come down to play despite challenges posed by the pandemic-induced restrictions.
