Published

Polo

For decades, we’ve been enjoying both modern and ancient games such as Football and even Wrestling! Which is why we’re easily captivated whenever a new or unique sport is brought to Egypt.

Horses are one of the most used animals in Egypt. They’re sometimes used for entertainment and transportation, while at other times they’re used for professional riding.

Polo games originated in Central Asia back in the 6th century! Yes, the game is that old! Which is why people are psyched to finally have Polo games taking place in Egypt!

El Gouna Beach will be hosting their second annual Polo Kings Silver Cup.

Believe it or not, this is a major event happening. People will be travelling the world for such an extraordinary event. The event is to take place on the beautiful shores of sandy Gouna under the hot sun, which makes it an even better experience that you can’t miss.

This sport was said to be strictly for Kings and Princes back in the old age, but in the modern day, anyone who has any experience and passion towards horse riding as well as playing polo is free to enter!

There’ll be six teams of three that are said to be competing in the second annual cup this year. Yikes, that’ll definitely cause more exciting rivalry for us to watch.

Not only will there be the Polo Silver Cup taking place, but there’ll also be loads of ranging activities as well as parades at the Marina! So much fun in store for you guys!

People will dress to impress and get ready for the major Gala dinner said to take place as well. You can even get pony rides!

This event will be a huge blast from the past since these are things people used to do decades ago and this sport was almost dying, which is why it is super exciting for Egypt to start doing things differently by embracing all cultures around us and reviving an old sport!

There you have it folks! Get your fanciest clothes and rest up for the event we’ve all been waiting for!

The main competition saw performances from around the world, including the US, Brazil, Switzerland, Kosovo, Portugal, Hungary, Morocco, Kuwait, Tunisia, Iraq, Syria, South Africa, Nigeria, and Congo.

The festival will be headed by Alaa Abdel Aziz Suleiman, a young theatre maker who adds so much to the edition from noticeable changes and adjustments.

According to Suleiman, the deadline for application forms from the teams wishing to participate in the festival is on August 10th. The festival administration confirmed that the ongoing pandemic has posed challenges for theatrical practices, whether on the production side or in presenting the works themselves.

“The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts presents Treasures of Ancient Egypt: Sunken Cities. The exhibition is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see treasures recovered from two powerful ancient Egyptian cities that sank into the Mediterranean more than a thousand years ago.” The official website of the museum wrote about the exhibition.

“This exhibition features a staggering array of objects from these excavations, supplemented by treasures from museums across Egypt. The objects on view piece together the economic and cultural significance of these destroyed city centers and showcase the artistry, religious practices, and traditions of their people.” It added.
