Ang Tshering Lama, winning team Altai-Himalaya and Club Manager at Genghis Khan Polo Club: “The Genghis Khan Polo Club enjoyed its most successful Polo Championship on its 10th anniversary this year. A total of 6 very diverse teams mixed with different nationalities came together to play a sport we all love. Thanks to POLO+10 for covering the tournament and also bringing their own team. Looking forward to a bigger and better 11th edition of the Genghis Khan Polo Cup next year.”

The POLO+10 Team now is on its way to Beijing to the Beijing Sunny Times Polo Club, where the “POLO+10 Patrons’ Cup China 2016” will be held from 12-17 October!
