Lux Afrique’s CEO and founder Alexander Amosu said:

“As we were not able to hold the event last year due to the pandemic we were determined to put on a spectacular event for the enjoyment of all our attendees. For many, this is the first social event they have attended post-lockdown and it was the best one we’ve done so far. The rain did not stop us from putting on an amazing polo day.

“We would like to thank all those involved as well as those who attended for making the day such a huge success. We can’t wait to put on an even bigger and better Lux Afrique Polo Day 2022.”
