It is designed specifically by women polo players for women polo players to network with one another to better support international polo. It’s a sophisticated chat room with player profiles, and a world calendar of women’s polo tournament dates designed to enhance women’s international polo.
The USPA, AAP, and HPA have given their blessings to their endeavor and have given them permission to use bits of video from the USPA, and AAP to include on the Square Space landing page to announce the Website build.
Women polo players from all clubs will be welcome to join their efforts to build the Website, and eventually post their own polo specific player profile details, women’s tournament information, and any useful women’s polo news. The Square Space landing page provides all the specifics of what the Websites capabilities will be, including answers to it’s standing as a non profit 501c3.
