We are delighted to say that the Lakderana Tuk Tuk Polo Tournament 2016 in Galle was a huge success! Watch this space for photos and videos of this year's event. In the mean time, check out the press that the tournament has been getting. We are so grateful for the positive feedback and support that we have received from everyone who attended - fingers crossed this great game becomes a new national sport for Sri Lanka! 

As ever, the biggest thank you must go to our sponsors, Lakderana Investments, who made this whole event possible. Thank you also to all the drivers and players, all of whom put a great fight, with excellent (and sometimes hair-raising) play throughout the entire tournament. And, finally...congratulations to this year's winning team Cantaloupe and to the runners up Komorebi!
