The All Pro Polo League (APPL) continues its European Tour with an exhibition match to be held at Deauville Polo Club today, Tuesday, August 22, at 6:30pm.
So far this year the APPL has hosted matches in Palm Beach, Chantilly, England, and Spain. The Sotogrande exhibition was a particularly important event in APPL history, as10-goalers Facundo Pieres and Pablo Mac Donough took part in the league for the first time.
The rules introduced by the APPL are designed to make polo a more attractive spectator sport. Fast, open polo is encouraged, and a dynamic rhythm must be maintained. The success of the league has prompted the Argentine Polo Association (AAP) to trail some of the rules in Argentine tournaments in the upcoming spring season.
