SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 2ND, AT THE GENEVA POLO CLUB
The sun was shining as crowds of visitors arrived to see five teams battle it out on the field for the beautiful “COPA SAN MARTIN 2018” sponsored by the argentine Estancia San Martin – Polo Farm and Family resort.
The style was elegant but relaxed, with fancy hats for ladies and sporty chic for the men. Cool melodies generated by “Soul Brothers” set the perfect atmosphere for the crowd who chilled out on the sidelines while sipping Pimm’s or AIX rosé and watching the matches. There was a nice vibe all around and lots of interaction at all levels.
The divot stomping sessions were a great opportunity to stroll across the field, meet interesting people or network and take in the sights.
Winning Team OKAPI at the Polo Competition:
After the “Americano” style round robin matches in the am, the two finalist teams, Lyon Polo Club and Okapi, led by Patron and team captain Mohamed Ndao, battled it out for first place. In a very close and intense match Okapi prevailed with 7 goals to 5 ½.
