Klosters Snow Polo cancelled
Popular snow polo tournament will no longer be run in Klosters
THE ANNUAL KLOSTERS Snow Polo has been cancelled and the event discontinued. The tournament was due to be held in the Swiss Alps from 16 – 20 January 2013.
Organisers Alpine Polo Club have announced that the event, which has been running for eight years, will no longer be held, due to significant financial loss from the 2012 tournament, the lack of a major title sponsor and extreme weather conditions in the region.
Despite acquiring sponsorship for the 2013 event, the organisers have been unable to make up the loss incurred at this year's tournament. The organisers' request of the local community to continue to support Klosters Snow Polo was rejected today.
The event attracted eight international teams in 2012, and was won by Maissen/Parmigiani, who narrowly defeated the all-British BMW team. British players Jonny Good, Henry Brett and Sebastian Dawnay were due to take part in the tournament in 2013.
