Sentebale, Prince Harry Capture Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup At Aspen Valley Polo Club
By Sharon Robb
For the second consecutive year, Sentebale, led by Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, won the Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup at Aspen Valley Polo Club.
In another memorable moment in the club’s nine-year history, Sentebale (Steve Cox, Prince Harry, Nacho Figueras, Grant Ganzi) won the special charity round robin tournament with a 3-1 win over Royal Salute (David Farache, Juan Bollini, Malcolm Borwick, Louis Devaleix) and 4-2 victory over U.S. Polo Assn (Ashley Van Metre, Saul Socca, Gonzalito Pieres, Collen Clark) on August 25th. In the opening match, Royal Salute defeated U.S. Polo Assn, 4-2.
Prince Harry scored four goals, including three against U.S. Polo Assn.
Prince Harry co-founded Sentebale in Lesotho in 2006 in memory of his late mother Princess Diana. The Duke of Sussex lives in California with his wife Meghan and their two children, Archie Harrison, 3, and Lilibet Diana, 1, after stepping back from royal duties.
Each year, the Polo Cup raises awareness and funds to support Sentebale’s work with children and young people in Southern Africa whose lives have been affected by extreme poverty, inequality, HIV/AIDS and recently COVID-19.
The Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup is the charity’s annual flagship fundraising event, which over the last decade has raised around $10 million to support Sentebale’s work in providing vulnerable children and young people in Lesotho and Botswana with access to vital health services, care and support, and skills to be self-sufficient and thrive.
