Sentebale Huntsman team win 5th Sentebale Polo Cup
On the 20th November 2014, Prince Harry and Nacho Figueras battled it out in their respective teams once again at the 5th Sentebale Polo Cup, presented by Royal Salute World Polo at Ghantoot Racing & Polo Club in Abu Dhabi, with the Sentebale Huntsman team beating Figueras’s St. Regis team 5-4.
Guests were treated to an afternoon of polo with the ISPS Handa Polo Challenge on arrival, followed by the UK and UAE national anthem and the highlight of the afternoon, the Sentebale Polo Cup.
Prizes from Garrard/Damas were awarded to players before guests were seated at the Rolex Dinner. Sentebale founding patrons Prince Harry, Prince Seeiso and Sentebale Ambassador, Nacho Figueras all spoke about our work with vulnerable children and the construction of the Mamohato Children’s Centre. Guests were urged to make a donation of 1200AED, enabling a child to be sent to Mamohato camp, offering them a chance in life as they tackle HIV stigma and health issues surrounding them.
The event raised hundreds of thousands of pounds and will go to ensuring many more vulnerable children get access to the care and education they need to lead a healthy life.
Other guests included, Sir Jackie Stewart, Christian Horner and his fiancé Geri Halliwell, Dan Stevens and Sienna Gilloury to name a few.
The team at Sentebale are very grateful to all our sponsors who made the event possible. This includes, Royal Salute World Polo, Huntsman, St. Regis, Rolex, ISPS Handa, Garrard/Damas, Jaguar Land Rover, Etihad and our venue host Ghantoot Racing & Polo Club.
