From July 12th to 14th the Ascona Polo Cup takes place for the fourth time in Ticino, Switzerland. Four teams are going to participate in the tournament and for the first time a complete polo team from India takes part. The team is lead by Vikram Rathore (0), one of the most active players and organisers of the Indian polo scene. Furthermore the sole female polo player in India, Manisha Yadav (-1) and the professional player Samir Suhag (+5) are in on it.

On three days first-class and entertaining polo will be played on the former airport of the community Ascona at Lago Maggiore. This year’s motto of the event is called “Switzerland meets India” and the decoration will be accordingly. The Hublot Ascona Polo Cup 2013 is meant to bring polo closer to everyone who is interested in it and is therefore open to the public. On Saturday there will be a parade with the players and their grooms on horseback through the centre of the village.

With a multitude of nationally and internationally known sponsors the Hublot Ascona Polo Cup is one of the highlights of the European polo season. Next to Hublot as the new main sponsor many others support the event as team sponsors such as Julius Bär, Styger & Partner, Bentley – Loris Kessel, Giardino Hotel Group, Andermatt Swiss Alps, Poroli Special Boats and Podium.
