Saint Tropez – July 15, 2019 – The International Polo Cup, which saw thirteen teams compete this year, came to an end on Sunday at Saint Tropez Polo Club with two finals: the 15-goal and the 10-goal. Both matches were streamed live via PoloLine TV.
The event also included a fabulous edition of ‘Sunday Polo,’ as is usual on finals day in the French Riviera. The latest ‘Sunday Polo,’ held on July 14, was extra special, as it coincided with Bastille Day, which commemorates the French Revolution.
First up, Amanara and VT Wealth Management went head to head for the 15-goal title. The teams had faced each other in the group stages, and it was clear that Amanara, Nicky Sen’s squad, had studied their opposition’s tactics well. They started off trailing in the first, but took the lead as of the second and maintained their advantage until the end, claiming a solid victory.
