This Arena Polo tournament takes place in the very center of the City of Maastricht. For three days many horse events attract a large public. The Polo tournament is played two against two in four chuckers. Arena rules apply. On Fridays and Saturdays, the games take place in the evening, finals on Sunday are during the afternoon.
Many spectators can gather around the field, or visit the fantastic VIP tent.
This was my second participation to the City Polo Maastricht; I enjoyed it very much, but we were not lucky as my teammate Comanche had an accident on Saturday night. For the Sunday game, my father Yves Wagner stepped in, we lost but had a lot of fun.
Special thanks to the friends from Luxembourg who visited us, great to see Stéphane back to a Polo field…I hope that he will make it to other events, he is most welcome.
I have to add that the organizers were fantastic. You can find a lot of media coverage of the event. Please check especially on “wamperpress” from the great photographer Bernhard Wampach. Special thanks to Jan-Eric Franck for his great comments, and to the 9 goaler Chris Hyde who was not to hard on me!
As always, good pictures can also be found on the web site of Harm-Jan Wijnholt!
