3 and 12 goal sections of The National Club Championships will be underway this Saturday. Black Eagles are back to defend their 2014 title of The HPA New Year National Club Championships 12 goal following their win in the 15 goal before Christmas.
One of the world’s oldest games is also one of its fastest – balls travel up to 110 miles per hour – and most dangerous. Man and horse work in partnership to get a ball through a goal, while using every possible strategy to prevent the opposing side from doing so. What happens on that quest is both brutish and beautiful.
Four top teams totalling players from seven nations will be competing for the Cartier Trophy at the Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz 2015 from 30 January through 1 February next year. On Friday, the new organisers presented the teams and the event’s programme. The world’s only high-goal snow polo tournament wants to resume the success of the early years both as a sporting and a social event.
