ABOUT THE JULIO NOVILLO ASTRADA CUP

The tournament has been established in 2004, as a tribute from the Novillo Astrada family to the founder of La Aguada and the family polo dynasty, Don Julio Novillo Astrada, the beloved and unforgettable Iaio, who set the club in Open Door, Argentina, in the early 70s. His children and grandchildren have honored his legacy by making La Aguada one of the most important and impressive polo clubs worldwide, as well as an ideal countryside destination, close to the city of Buenos Aires.
