CIRCUITO POLO SUR AT PUESTO VIEJO

Circuito Polo Sur began in 2007 and since then more than 10 clubs have hosted the event with over 250 players taking part. The open to low-handicap (up to 4 goals) teams are all from the southern areas of Buenos Aires. There are 5 rounds in the event, and in each round, there are 80 championship points for the winning team, 60 for the runner-up, 50 for the third, 40 for the fourth, and 30 for the fifth-placed and following teams. The two teams with the highest amount of points after the fifth round will make it into the final, due to be played at the Pilar grounds of the Asociación Argentina de Polo. On Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th November, Puesto Viejo hosted the 3rd stage of the event sponsored by Cartier and Miguel Acuna Saddlery. 8 teams played in the tournament leading to a tense, fast and very close final between Puesto Viejo La Sonada and La Enriqueta-La Celia on Cancha 3. La Enriqueta-La Celia dominated in the first 3 chukkas but the 4th and final chukka saw Puesto Viejo fight back and send the game into overtime. In the end, Juan Bautista Condomi Alcorta from La Enriqueta-La Celia scored a penalty goal to win the 3rd stage and take La Enriqueta-La Celia into the lead position in Circuito Polo Sur. The 4th stage will be played at Tristan Suarez on Sunday 4th December. To see photos of the day, please see our Facebook page.
