Polo is again helping put Blayney Shire on the map.
NSW’s premier regional polo tournaments, the Millamolong ‘John Davis Volvo’ Polo Carnival is expanding this year with two days of action.
The Millamolong Polo Club will host the 2013 ‘John Davis Volvo’ Polo Carnival on 16 and 17 March at their polo fields in Mandurama.
Saturday16 March will see some of the best polo players on the circuit, with players coming from across the state and overseas. This is the some of the fastest and most aggressive polo played in Australia.
The next day the finals will be played, with a family day including pony rides, the Dudley Private Sports & Vintage Car Rally, helicopter and the annual Volvo vs. horse race.
Millamolong’s president Andrew Ashton said: “The Millamolong Polo Carnival has grown substantially over the past few years.
“Statistics show that polo is one of the most dangerous sports on earth, and with a history dating back to 600BC when the first recorded Polo Match was played – it has to be a sport worth watching.
“We are attracting more people to this great region, and the new format, with live music and the PhyzX Varsity bicycle polo on Saturday night plus the family day on the Sunday will encourage even more visitors.”
The Millamolong Polo Club will also fundraise for the Millamolong Charity Fund with CARE Australia and Riding for the Disabled Orange this year’s chosen charities.
