Martindale Queen’s Cup!
$210.000 were raised for the children’s home!
A word from the editor: 2 years ago the manager of a very famous and snobbish polo club said to me: “To watch female polo is disgusting! Pathetic!” I have heard this so many times here, there and everywhere…
But we suggest you look at these pictures? Where else in polo can you see so much beauty? If you collect all the men’s polo tournaments played in the last 100 years, together they would not assemble so much kindness and smiles, as brought together in the playing of the Martindale Queen’s Cup!
Unfortunately, this manager is still of the same opinion, but fortunately, the world is no longer agreeing with him…Мore and more women’s polo tournaments are becoming fashionable charity events. This is one of the main roles of women’s polo. We CAN: play polo, stay beautiful and encourage other women.
Our magazine aims to rejoice in the development of women’s polo and we are happy to be an active part of this history. Enjoy the fantastic photography of Fernando Moronic and the press release written by Ali Rohm and Rosario Oyhanarte.
