The Friendship Cup 2020 started on August 13th with games taking place Thursday through Sunday at the polo fields. This year, the tournament is dedicated to Dr. José López, a long time community member, and avid polo player and supporter. Dr. López is both a medic and a poet, but to the members of the Casa de Campo and La Romana community he is probably best known as ‘Dr. Lopez’ the Health Vice President of Central Romana & Director of the Centro Médico who has been working tirelessly to help stop the spread of Covid-19.
The tournament saw five teams compete for the Dr. José López Cup featuring the best local players in an all-Dominican competition; the 3JJJ POLO TEAM, CDC POLO TEAM, LA CARBUCCIA POLO TEAM, PITIRRI-POTRANCA-ESPADA, and LA SUIZA – LA CARMELA. Where the finalists will be competing this Saturday to see who will be the team that will lift the winners cup this year!
All people attending the games are advised to follow safety guidelines such as wearing a mask, maintaining social distance, and the use of hand sanitizers. The hotel has done an outstanding job of keeping all areas safe for us but it is also our duty to help stop the spread of the virus.
We hope to see you there enjoying another one of Casa’s fun summer activities!
