ENGLAND

September 201812 GPL players, representing six countries, traveled to England to play polo at the exclusive Zacara Polo Club in Windsor. 

Mariano Darritchon, owner of La Mariposa Polo Club, organized great matches and fun social events for us.

ARGENTINA

December 2019:  GPL returned to Argentina, the mother-country of polo.  GPL members attended the semi-finals and finals of the 126th Argentine Open Polo Tournament.  During the week, we traveled to Lobos to experience three days of polo with Andres LaPlacette, a five goal player. 

Andres, known as Lala, organized morning stick & ball sessions and afternoon matches. 

Each polo team had two GPL players plus two professionals which ensured the games were open and fast.  The ponies, polo and pros were top-notch.  Evenings were spent fire-side at the asado. 

December 2016:  It was a privilege for GPL members to play with the legendary Eduardo Heguy, the four-time winner of the Argentine Open. Heguy was a 10-goal polo player and played in 31 consecutive Argentine Opens.  

Eduardo and his team produced three wonderful days of polo at his private polo club,

El Remanso.  On the final day, Heguy organized a GPL tournament at Chapa Uno Polo Club in Pilar.
