The coast of Versilia, located in the north-west of Tuscany, is known for its wide sandy beaches – the ideal location for beach polo. The Mediterranean Sea in the front and the mountains of Tuscany in the back form a magnificent backdrop for the Versilia Polo Beach Cup, this year taking place for the sixth time.

Four teams have announced their participation in the tournament, which will be held from 10th to 12th October. In addition to the teams Villa Ariston, Dr. Vranjes and Coci, the FIPA Group will also start with a team of three players. The Italian FIPA Group is one of the international leading producers of yachts and is fully committed as a sponsor to the sport of polo all over the world. The headquarters of the company are located in the city of Viareggio, where the Polo Beach Cup was held during the past five years.

This year the tournament has changed its location. The beach polo arena now can be found in the renowned beach resort “Lido di Camaiore”, located about five kilometres in the north of Viareggio. The event will be held at the Park Hotel Villa Ariston, located only 200 metres distant from the beach. On Saturday evening a gala dinner will be held at the hotel. The beach club of the hotel will be responsible for the catering on every day and on Friday evening it will host a beach party.

Right in front of the beach, including the 60 x 100 metres polo field, the luxury yachts of the FIPA Group anchor and can be visited anytime.
