Beach Polo in Estepona
For those who do not know the Beach Polo we tell you a bit about it. The Beach Polo is an innovative modality that is born from the traditional pole only that for this variant the stadium where the game is played becomes smaller so that the public can better appreciate the quick action of this sport from a much shorter distance.
“In Estepona we will have four international polo teams with around 50 agile and fast horses, which will end up captivating spectators and fans” Isabel de Borbón
On these four international teams, which come from France, England and Sweden, stands out without a doubt “Jolly Roger – King of Polo“, winner of numerous tournaments in Sotogrande and abroad, in addition to other great professionals such as Jamie Le Hardy and Hernan Pieres.
The Beach Polo is having more and more repercussion throughout the world. In cities such as Miami or Dubai it is a highly acclaimed sport, and now it arrives in Estepona with this first edition of the Costa del Sol Beach Polo Cup.
“It is the first time that an event of this kind has been held in Estepona, which reflects the changes that are taking place in the area. The date of this event is in line with the reopening of the hotel after a major refurbishment and the launch and opening of three new restaurants. It is a real pleasure to bring this sport with so much glamor to the beach of El Padrón in front of the hotel. We are looking forward to welcoming both polo lovers and people who want to admire this sport for the first time, so they can enjoy very interesting matches and a good atmosphere” Carla Lopes
