3 Comments Print

The Tortugas Country Club Open Polo Championship is currently underway, as six teams compete for the Emilio de Anchorena Cup. According to My Buenos Aires Travel Guide, this tournament is the first of three in the official polo season, known as the Triple Crown. The matches, which began on Tuesday and run until the finals on October 11th, feature eleven of Argentinas twelve players with the highest handicaps. Each team must have a handicap of at least 10 goals to qualify, making this tournament a match of some of the best polo teams in the world, played in a country that really appreciates its polo and its horses. Depending on the match and the seats, tickets cost between 25 to 200 pesos; the next game is September 27th.
