On a glorious day when a majority of Kenyans take leisure after gruelling office days, it takes one about an hour to drive from the ever-engaging streets of Nairobi’s city centre to the wire fence demarcating the Nairobi Polo Club.
Adorned at the gate is a white board. ‘Welcome to Nairobi Polo Club’. Then there are fields. And stables. The stabling can handle 90 horses with additional stables at Jamhuri Park.
Also, there is a beautiful stand that can sit hundreds of spectators, and a refreshment joint.
Kenya is slowly morphing into an impressive amount of horse-and-mallet athleticism, ranging from inter-regional activities to international competitions.
