A fabulous day of polo for next generation at the 5th edition of the Guards La Aguada International Youth Tournament: Families and friends enjoyed a spectacular day of polo at the Guards La Aguada International Youth Tournament, the children’s competition brought together by two of the most renowned polo clubs worldwide, Guards Polo Club and La Aguada Polo Club.
The tournament, now in its fifth year, and firmly established as one of the most popular in the polo calendar at Guards Polo Club, has taken place on Saturday July 8, at Guards Polo Club, in Windsor Great Park. This event not only builds friendships and creates bonds between some of the youngest players of the game in both England and Argentina, but also reinforces and develops the successful, partnership between Guards Polo Club and La Aguada Polo Club. These two great clubs have worked together for many years, creating events in both Argentina and England.
In addition, the Guards La Aguada International Youth Tournament is creating an excellent platform for the next generation of players to develop their polo skills. As usual, La Aguada Polo Club had a strong presence on the day through the involvement of the Novillo Astrada brothers – Eduardo Jr., Ignacio and Alejandro. All of them are currently competing in the UK, as is La Aguada’s Polo Manager, Thomas Hume, who has remarked that “the aim of this tournament is to encourage the players to build strong bonds; get to know each other and make friends”.
