An exciting new polo event, the Val de Vie 5 Nations Invitational Polo Classic, has joined the South African Polo calendar for 2012. Set to take place on Saturday the 24th March at the picturesque Val de Vie Estate in the Paarl-Franschhoek Valley, this annual event will feature an invitational of some of the top international polo players from countries such as Great Britain, Holland, Pakistan and Zimbabwe, and will create a new niche for itself with regards to VIP corporate entertainment.
Playing host to ABSA Wealth’s top clients as well as other corporates wishing to provide a platform for their VIP clients to network, enjoy fine whiskey, food, wine and polo, the 5 Nations will provide an entertaining and stylish day out. Five countries, including South Africa, will select their top players to participate in the tournament, bringing a world-class level of polo to the plate. Corporate and VIP guests can expect to see riveting polo as the two final teams take each other on for the winning trophy in the finale on the Saturday.
Different to its other polo event counterparts, the 5 Nations will start only in the late afternoon, and offer a host of entertainment throughout the evening. Guests will be welcomed by a selection of tasty Gordon’s Dry Gin welcoming drinks and a grand display of Vintage Cars. There will be a fashion showcase with a twist before the main match whilst an elegant evening of old-school glamour awaits in Val de Vie’s elegant ballroom. Guests will be treated to a Bisquit and Cognac pairing later in the evening, and entertained by live music – all dressed in an elegant masculine theme reminiscent of an old gentleman’s club with interesting food and wine pairings offered throughout the evening.
This new polo event offers the perfect opportunity for VIP businessmen and their wives to network. A definite must for those who enjoy the finer things in life.
