Beach Polo World Cup Returns with More Than 120 Horses

Miami Beach’s white sands, bright blue skies, and refreshing ocean breezes will once again set the stage for the annual Beach Polo World Cup. The event is celebrating its 17th anniversary from April 21 to 23.

One of the largest events of its kind, the three-day extravaganza will feature eight teams and more than 120 first-class equines. The matches are expected to draw a global audience of more than 12,000 visitors to the sands of Miami Beach at Collins Park. 

“Miami is vibrant and beautiful; the energy is palpable. The unique mix of cultures set against the expansive beaches and art deco backdrop make for a truly unique experience,” producer Tito Gaudenzi tells New Times

Gaudenzi, a Swiss-born professional polo player, was inspired by his father and polo player Reto Gaudenzi, who founded the St. Mortiz Snow Polo World Cup in 1985. Gaudenzi followed suit with the creation of the Kitzbühel Snow Polo World Cup in 2003 and the Beach Polo World Cup in Miami Beach in 2005, which he operates with partner Melissa Ganzi.
