From 6th to 21st September six teams with team handicaps up to +16 fought at the Open de France in the Polo Club du Domaine de Chantilly for the victory. In the final, the teams Vicomte A and Sainte-Mesme faced.

After a initial lead of Sainte-Mesme, Vicomte A took the lead in the fourth chukker for the first time. In the fifth chukker they extended the lead. But Sainte-Mesme did not give up, fought back and in the end of the chukker the score was a tie by 9-9. The decision had to come by golden goal in an extra chukker. Edouard Pan (+4) was the first one, who scored between the posts. So his team Vicomte A with Alexandre Sztarkman (+1), Facundo Fernandez-Llorente (+4), Dario Mussi (+7) and Edouard Pan (+4) went from the field as the winner of the Open de France 2014.

Birger Strom (+1), Brieuc Rigaux (+5), Clemento Zavaletta (+6) and Robert Strom (+4) of Sainte-Mesme were placed second.
