The Polo de París season came to an end on Sunday after the final of the Championnat de France (6/8 goals) which took place at Bagatelle. The tournament was divided in two groups: París and Chantilly. The final was played between the winners of each pool: Sainte Mesme (París) and French Kiss (Chantilly).
