Between 25th and 28th April, 6 teams will play for the honor of lifting the silver cup on the final day. Fortunately, the event is open to everybody. This means that those with a mild curiosity aboutthe sport could attend with the enthusiasts and VIP’s.
This is important as it can open new doors of interest for children who might later take an interest in the sport. Being Arena Polo, these teams consist of 3 players each. And of these team members, one is responsible for attack, one plays the midfield and one defends the goal. This makes for a higher energy, more intense game than regular Polo. The arena pitch being smaller than a traditional pitch further intensifies the game. The custom built arena is erected next to La Maison Bleue on the more northerly Mangroovy beach of El Gouna.
