The competition is going to be very exciting and to have it set up on the magnificent fields of the Chantilly Polo Club will further contribute to its success.”
Benoît Perrier, CEO & Co-Founder of GAME Polo, comments: “Deauville International Polo Club is one of the oldest clubs in France, founded in 1907. To count on their participation is a great honor for the POLO RIDER CUP. The Normandy team has one of the best French players in the person of Pierre-Henri NGoumou. The Argentine Tete Storni is a Pato champion and a very strong attacker. Pato, Argentina’s national sport since 1953, is a game played on horseback that combines elements from polo and basketball. The team is led by the Eisenchteter, two excellent players with a strong organization thanks to the expertise of Laetitia Macaire. Ulysse Eisenchteter will be the youngest player of the tournament.’’
