About Sherri-Lyn

I am a 4th generation polo player, born and bred in Zimbabwe. I come from a polo playing family, even my grandmother played and I was fortunate to have been taught to play polo by my father and my uncle, who both reached 7 goals. Learning to play polo in Zimbabwe set me in good stead and I reached a 2 goal handicap which became my passport to the world. I have been so fortunate to have been able to travel all over the world to play polo. I have played with and against some amazing and inspiring woman polo players and count myself lucky to be able to call them friends. A back injury set me back slightly, a few years back, but I am back in the saddle and more importantly back on the field! I am currently the secretary of the Polo Association of Zimbabwe and I manage the polo grounds at our main polo facility in Harare. I am also a qualified saddler and run a small leatherwork business from home.

Notable Accomplishments

I am very proud of the fact that I am the only Zimbabwean player who has played in the Zimbabwe Schoolboys team, the Zimbabwe ladies team and the Zimbabwean National side. Highlights of my career include being invited to play in the ICWI Women’s International Tournaments held in Jamaica. Playing for Africa against England in South Africa. I was also invited to play for the Rest of the World team against England, and also played in the US Women’s Open in Houston, Texas. I have played the Ladies Tournaments in Aiken, California and Chicago and the WCT Finals in Florida. I have played in and Captained the Zimbabwe Ladies Polo Team competing against Kenyan and Zambian Ladies Teams.
