The date for the 2023 Italia Polo Challenge Cortina has been set for February 14th – 18th.
This Arena Polo on Snow tournament (8-10 goal handicap) is played in the evenings in a wonderful setting made even more enchanting by the spotlights. Six polo teams will be competing for Germany, Italy, France, Germany, Korea and China.
One member of the Chinese team is Eclair Chen, obviously a player who is greatly appreciated as the captain of the team that won the 2021 edition . The young and beautiful player, who lives permanently in England, will certainly not be the only lady playing in the tournament. There is a great deal that is eastern in this edition with the Korea Polo Country Club as a new entry and that has recently become very active in Europe.
“We had hardly finished confirming the dates and the group of teams was already complete,” said Patricio Rattagan, organiser of this event that receives the greatest support from the Municipality of Cortina d’Ampezzo and the Italian Equestrian Sports Federation. “This is the best possible confirmation of the appeal of an event boasting an extraordinary tradition.”
