The Torneo de los Restaurantes „La Quinta“ has ended with two winners at a time. From 30th May until 1st June six teams competed against each other in the course of the third edition of the tournament. The matches took place at the Río Sotogrande premises of the Santa María Polo Club in Sotogrande, Spain. All participating teams bore the names of popular restaurants, which are located in Sotogrande and support the tournament with social events.
In the final the teams Midas with Rosendo Torreguitar (0), Richard Fagan (+1), Jack Kidd (+3) and Lawrence Isola (+1) and Mara with Kaveh Shakib (0), Sophie Stanek (0), Mario Gómez (+4) and Luciano Irazábal (+1) met.
