Central Texas Polo Association (CTPA) and Two Wishes Ranch in Lockhart, Texas, play host to the coveted 2017 Annual Fall Fandango Collegiate and High School polo tournament November 9-12.
Teams from University of Texas, Texas A&M University, Oklahoma State University, Colorado State University and Texas Tech University will face off in a series of polo tournaments for this Fall event. Additionally, High School teams representing Austin, San Antonio, Dallas/Ft Worth, Kyle, Arizona and Retama will be playing matches.
“The Fall Fandango Polo Tournament started back in 2008. It has been played in Ft Worth, Houston, Midland and now the Austin area. The teams in the region always look forward to it,” said organizer Robin Sanchez. “Two Wishes Ranch and Central Texas Polo Association have been growing the sport of polo so much in the last couple years that it was a good fit to move the tournament to the Austin area, not to mention all the great BBQ in Lockhart.”
Teams will be playing for bragging rights in United States Polo Association circuit tournaments over the weekend including several Military tournaments in honor of Veterans Day. Teams with players who have either served in the military or whose family members have served qualify for the special matches which include the Admiral Chester Nimitz Cup.
Spectators are welcome to attend the matches and cheer on their hometown, Alma Mater or favorite team. Tickets are $15 per vehicle and available on Eventbrite.
Two Wishes Ranch is located at 454 Hobby Horse Rd, Lockhart, Texas, and pinned on Google Maps. Schedule follows and is subject to change. For an up to date schedule, please visit the event Facebook page here.
