An exciting and thrilling polo season, including fantastic teams and terrific matches, lies behind us. In the new issue of POLO+10 we recall European and international chukkas and are looking forward to the upcoming year.
In 2016, we await the European Championship on Berlin’s Maifeld. Event organiser Moritz Gädeke has just been named FIP ambassador by the Federation of International Polo. We at POLO+10 are very much looking forward to producing the tournament magazine for this high-class event and taking care of the international PR work.
Furthermore, we’re particularly looking forward to a première in 2016: a polo tournament will take place for the first time on the Croatian Adriatic coast in Rovinj, Istria.
While Croatia starts out on its polo career, Argentina, USA and England – the “big 3” – already have a long tradition in the sport of polo. More than half of all clubs and players can be found here. But what about the other countries? POLO+10 did some research and in its new issue presents the polo universe in terms of numbers – unique on a global scale!
Furthermore, we have met Thomas Winter, Germany’s best polo player, and had a detailed conversation with him regarding polo equipment and what should be paid attention to most closely – there are many things to consider, especially in the matter of safety.
We wish you an informative read with this issue of POLO+10. You will find many familiar faces while reading and turning pages for sure. All the best, we’ll see you again in spring 2016. Until then, you can follow all our news on www.poloplus10.com
