In the midst of the Argentine high-goal we receive news from next year’s European season. As usual, glamour and good polo will meet in Paris as of May, where numerous teams will battle it out to become Paris Open champions in Bagatelle.

The 2017 Parisian season will also include a new 10-12 goal tournament set to shake things up. The competition, held from July 1 to 9, will ensure that teams travelling to St Tropez arrive fit and fighting.
