Manila Polo Club rejects Manny Pacquiao’s membership application

The Manila Polo Club reportedly rejected the membership application of Filipino boxing superstar and Congressman Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao.

MPC is an elite club based in Forbes Park, Makati City. An unnamed board member of another exclusive club, the Manila Golf Club (MGC) offered a reason why MPC might not have allowed Pacquiao to join their group. “It’s a small club in a small village. They want to preserve a lifestyle,” the board member said. He added that the club is strict with members bringing in a number of guests or in Pacquiao’s case, an entire entourage.
