VIII Ladies Circuit Championship

Centauros La Aventura and La Varzea claim titles

The final matches of the VIII Ladies Circuit Championships took place on Monday 16 October on the AAP grounds in Pilar. The Championship was divided into a high and a low goal section with four teams taking part in the high goal and seven in the low goal. The standard of polo was exceedingly good and with little more than two goals in it, Centauros La Aventura took the high goal title 9-7 against La Varzea Rei do Caviar. 

In the low goal, La Varzea championed both Zone A and B, and won their final match against Martiendale Las Tacuaras 7-4, to be crowned low goal champions. The success of this tournament, and the large number of entries, reflects the global increase in the popularity of ladies polo. To this end, it has also been announced that for the first time in history and with the full support of the Argentine Association of Polo, a ladies category has been introduced into the prestigious Argentine Open tournament, the biggest polo competition in the world. This year open teams will compete for the first ever Ladies Argentine Open after the Subcommittee created by the AAP, introduced this exciting new project. So far, four teams have been confirmed for the inaugural Argentine Women’s Open. There are also potentially two more teams yet to be confirmed at the time of going to press. The two main teams have been confirmed as La Dolfina and Ellerstina and are made up as follows:
La Dolfina: Nina Clarkin, Mia Cambiaso, Candelaria Fernández Araujo & Milagros Fernández Araujo
Ellerstina: Hazel Jackson, Lía Salvo, Sarah Wiseman & Clara Cassino
The tournament gets underway on 21 November and will take place at the same time as the men’s Argentine Open, when the world’s eyes are turned to Argentina, and best of all the Final will be played prior to the men’s Final on the sacred grounds of Palermo. Polo Times will be covering this exciting event, so subscribe now by clicking here, so as not to miss out.
