If you – like us – are already looking forward to next summer’s polo events (in the northern hemisphere, that is!) you’ll be pleased to know that, as of next year there will be an additional candidate when planning your polo holiday abroad. From the country that recently gave us “The Killing”, “The Bridge”, and “Borgen”, the first ever Polo Open in Copenhagen is due to take place on the 21st and 22nd of June at ‘Fælledparken’ in the Northern part of Copenhagen.
So far Mat Lodder (4-goaler) and Ryan Pemble (5-goaler) have been confirmed to take part; both prominent polo players with a long list of international polo silverware between them, including prestigious Gold Cup and Queens Cup wins. With two skilled players like that already part of the line-up, Copenhagen Polo Open promises to be a thrilling event quite capable in rivalling the recent crime TV series export.
Surprised that the horse-loving nation of Denmark has not hosted any Polo Opens before? So were we! A country not without equestrian pedigree ought to have their own annual polo open, so it’s about time something was arranged. This is definitely a contender for our summer holiday plans next year!
Tickets have yet to go on sale, but should become available towards the end of the year. The best way to stay updated is by going to the official Facebook page where all new announcements will be posted by the organisers.
