Polo Park Zürich: Last weekend, the traditional polo tournament “San Francisco de Asis Polo Cup”, sponsored since his first edition by Clara and Francisco Podesta, has taken place with 2 leagues and 8 teams. 

One of the winners was G-Squared, the team of Richard Harris. For the passionate player 2021 will definitely be a particularly successful one: He previously won the Rider Cup in France and the two 8 goal tournaments at Polo Park Zürich in July. The mood was exceptionally good: „It was very nice for us to see that after a very challenging year things have returned to normal a little bit. The players and guests could enjoy the tournament in a more relaxed manner“, says Clara Podesta from Polo Park Zürich.

Even it the weather was not super nice the Family Style Lunch on Sunday with all players and their families turned out to be a very special highlight again. The atmosphere was so good that most of the guests stayed until the late afternoon – and enjoyed the time together with lively chats.
