About us

Harford Sports Promotions SA (Pty) Ltd (HSP) is a fully-integrated event management company dedicated to supplying clients with creative solutions, strategic planning and flawless execution of their events.

HSP – specialising in mass participation events, was founded in 1989 by former international women’s tennis star, Tanya Harford. Following her retirement from the Women’s International Tennis Tour, Tanya began building Harford Sports Promotions. Over 29 years later, she and her team have been involved in a host of events, including large music concerts, International Polo events, and two of the world’s largest, and most prestigious events – the MTN Walk the Talk (largest mass-participation event in Africa) and the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge (the second largest timed cycle event in the world).

With a dedicated team of passionate professionals and over 29 years of experience within the industry, HSP has the expertise to manage your event from start to finish with professional results, whilst applying international standards. The management and hosting of sporting events in South Africa is a highly specialised field. Faced with the special challenge of organising an event with the logistics of the South African experience, your event management company needs to have a thorough understanding of the regulations and requirements for hosting a spectacular event successfully.
