The Joseph McMicking Cup continued on Thursday, June 10, with the first two matches of the 12-14 goal league, played at Dos Lunes. This year’s edition includes two levels of play: 6-8 goal and 12-14 goal.
This season marks a new era for polo in Sotogrande, with Ayala acting as the main host of the action. The club is supported by Minuto Siete, Dos Lunas Polo & Dressage Club, and Santa María Polo Club.
This season promises to be a memorable one, running through to the end of August, the month when the high goal returns to Sotogrande.
