The BMW International Polo Series (Durban)

The BMW International Polo Series, which features the South African National polo team against a touring international team, is played in September each year. The first Test which always takes place on a Sunday is played at Shongweni Club, in Hillcrest just outside of Durban, and the second Test, played a week later, is held at Waterfall Polo Estate in Sunninghill, Johannesburg.

 

The SA Polo Association is proud to announce that the Uruguayan Polo Association have accepted our invitation to send a 23 goal team to participate this year. The team is to include Mauricio Sánchez (5) at number 1, Alejo Taranco (7) at number 2, Santiago Stirling (5) playing in the number 3 position with Juan Curbelo (6) in the number 4 position. Uruguay have only toured South Africa once before for this Test Series in 1989 during which the visitors were victorious.
