Paspaley Polo in the City

Paspaley hosted it's annual glam sporting event of the year, Paspaley Polo in the City on Saturday 17th Nov, in Sydney's Centennial Park. One of the oldest sports in the world, Polo dates back at least 2,000 years and has an impressive history. Today, more than 77 countries play polo. It was an Olympic sport from 1900 to 1939 and has now been recognised again by the International Olympic Committee, whereas once the game was primarily played by Royalty and later cavalry, today the sport has become more accessible and attracts a broader spectrum of society.

Polo is the fastest ball game and some believe it is the fastest growing spectator sport in the world. I guess this is why it's the hottest event ticket in town!This was my second year attending "Paspaley Polo In The City," last year I was working covering the sport for channel ONE, so I got to learn a great deal about the sport along with interview some of the best polo players both international and home grown. This year is was an honour to be invited as a special guest of Paspaley along with doing the official media call a week before with Australia's highest ranked polo player Rob Archibald and Neville (the horse).

An amazing day with blue skies and packed marquee's all feasting their eyes on the game for kings. A huge thank you to Paspaley and Black communications.

Famous Faces that were seen at the Polo included Terry Biviano, Frances Ingham, Nic Smith, Sarah Stinson, Jo Ferguson, Sally Obermeder, Neale Whittaker, Michelle and Martin Walsh, Vitek, Kirstie Clements, Mark Cavanagh, Hermione Underwood, Charlie Boyce, Ashley Hart, Phoebe Tonkin and Pip Edwards.
