Welcome to this year’s 2016 NPA International Polo Tournament. This year’s theme is developed around “LAGOS PLAYS POLO” as Polo returns to the Lagos Polo Club after an absence of nearly 2 years due to the re turfing of the field.
The Club has also decided to return to the traditional month of February to hold the Tournament. This has been quite demanding to ensure it fits in with the NPA calender but the Captain and his PMC have done a great job.
The NPA season started with the Wonderful Tournament in Kano which was very successful for Lagos with one of our teams winning the Dantata Cup.
We started our season with the Captains Cup which was very successful and well attended, one of the high lights was the introduction of the juniors final the “windmill trophy” that’s was keenly contested by the under 21 playes and was a sight to see.
Finally may I say being the President of this great club at this time of transition and development makes me proud and honoured. I can take some of the credit as leader, but I will like to recognise the Stirling efforts of my Main Committee, the PMC, Club Staff ?, Members and it is them I would like to pay tribute too for the progress we have made since our Committee began in July 2015.
Thank you to all our traditional sponsors and all the new ones too, with out you this will not be possible.
As I welcome all our players and members from our NPA affiliate clubs, our international Players, guests and we’ll wishers to this great fiesta ?, I will like to wish you all a safe Tournament and GOD’S SPEED.
