Polo In The City 2013

This was my third year attending the Polo, but my first year attending and not working. I got to really enjoy the game and embrace the surrounding and stunning tents the Paspaley and  Veuve had to offer. The rain didn't stop guests from enjoying a fantastic day in Centennial Park, O and thanks vevude for helping with my foot attire on the day. How amazing are these veuve gumboots. 
For those who don't know much about the Polo here is some info: 
One of the oldest sports in the world, Polo dates back at least 2,000 years, with the first recorded match being played between the Persians and Turkomans in 600BC. 
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.The first game in Australia was played at Moore Park, Sydney, in 1874, and from there it spread throughout the country.

Over recent years, the growth of the sport across the globe has been substantial, and in Australia, the sport is being embraced by young urban professionals captivated by the excitement and adrenaline of the sport.
