On 25th and 26th October, the “Fourth Annual Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships: Horses & Horsepower“ will be held at WestWorld of Scottsdale’s Polo Field in Arizona. The event features four exciting polo matches over two days with a total of eight teams competing against each other in front of the breathtaking backdrop of McDowell Mountains.
Among the teams participating in the tournament is the Molina Fine Jewelers Women’s World All Star Team, including professional female polo players like Sunny Hale, Sarah Wiseman, Caroline Anier and Paola Martinez. Hale is considered the best female player in the U.S., Wiseman (of Great Britain) one of the best in Europe and Martinez (of the world’s top polo country Argentina) one of the best in South America. On Saturday they will meet the all-male Bentley Scottsdale Clogau Wales Polo Team. Earlier on Saturday the Arizona Polo Club will take on the Gay Polo League team. The Gay Polo League, based in Florida, is the world’s only organized gay polo league.
An All-Star match between Saturday’s top players will take place alongside the USPA Governor’s Cup on Sunday, October 26, commemorating the United States Polo Association’s decision to hold its prestigious Annual Meeting in conjunction with this year’s event. Sunday’s action will feature Julio Arellano, the top polo players in the U.S. and Patrick Uretz of Westmont College in Santa Barbara, the top college polo player in the U.S. A new addition Sunday will be a memorable brunch in the Rolls Royce Champagne Lounge.
