Gabriel Iglesias, President of the Ibiza Polo Club: “The Ibiza Beach Polo Cup was born as a totally original and different project in Ibiza. Nobody knew about polo on the island, and in fact, the idea of creating a polo field from scratch, and bringing more than 70 horses here was a madman’s idea; but the creator of this whole thing is a madman, and this is why this extravagance became reality. This annual rendez-vous is now one of the most relevant events of the Beach Polo International Tour, so much so that Adolfito Cambiaso, the best player in the world, only plays beach polo here, in Ibiza. This tournament also relies on the presence of some of the highest handicapped players in the world. The Ibiza Beach Polo Cup is now played at IBIZA POLO CLUB, where an arena pitch is built as if it were the beach. We would like to invite you to discover the club, the only official polo club of the Balearics and Territorial Delegation of the Royal Spanish Polo Federation.”
