A typical day at La Tarde Polo Club
A typical day at La Tarde Polo Club starts with a collective breakfast buffet. This is followed by Stick & Ball with professional polo players and coaches, who put together an individual training programme for each guest. The training lasts two hours and subsequently tactics are being discussed and explained. Those, who still want more, get the opportunity to take lessons on the wooden horse. Following a collective lunch, the guests can relax at one of the two swimming pools or at the spa, enjoy a massage or simply take a siesta. In the afternoon another four to six chukkas are played. Juan Martin Sarli: “Because of our Argentinean club members our guests have the chance to play fast and good polo. And each one is integrated into the match, the experienced players as well as the inexperienced. Following an unforgettable sunset, which is a real spectacle here, we have a delicious asado or a homemade dinner.”
