From January 24th – 27th, 2013, the BMW Polo Masters Tour goes into its second round in Megève. Megève started on the path to becoming a popular skiing and winter sports resort in the early 20th Century when Baron Maurice de Rothschild regularly spent his winter holidays here close to Mont Blanc as an alternative to St. Moritz.

The tournament in Megève is France’s oldest snow polo tournament, and 2013 will be its eighteenth year. Four teams of four players each will be competing on the polo field in the Arly plain outside the Palais des Sports. Megève is the only stop on the Tour in which each team plays with four players: in Val d’Isère and Courchevel teams have three players. Team handicaps of +8 to +10 make Megève the tournament with the highest handicaps as well: Val d’Isère and Courchevel are played with team handicaps of +6 to +8.
