casa de campo poloSemana Santa (Easter) is fast approaching – which means so are all the eagerly anticipated events and parties! And always one of the best is the finals of the Semana Santa Polo Tournament – this year (as every year) planned to take place at the Casa de Campo polo fields on Sábado Santo (Saturday March 30th) from 3pm.

casa de campo poloOf course a polo tournament isn’t won in a day – so tomorrow the Semana Santa Polo Tournament begins with the participation of 4 excellent teams, who will battle it out to be be crowned the champions at the party, sorry I mean the finals, next Saturday the 30th of March!

The 4 participating teams are: Power Infrastructure (Miguel Mendoza, Santiago Schwietzer, Marcelo Amadeo y Videla, Omar Gorosito), Lechuza (Enrique Bonetti, Alfredo Vargas, Johnny Alvarez, Dennis Santana), Los Garcia (Rafa Garcia, R Garcia, Teto Castillo, Heriberto Constanza) and La Carbuccia Dewars 12 (Luis Alfonso Paniagua, Mario Villegas, Fermin Iturrioz, Luis Arturo Carbuccia).

I personally am particularly excited to see “Power Infrastructure” play! What an incredible team name – I hope they win, a headline using those words would be awesome!

As yet we have not receieved any more details about the party planned for the finals – but if previous years are anything to go by (see photos below), it will no doubt be awesome – and certainly something worth adding to your party diary!

All tournament games will be played on the Casa de Campo fields – spectators are very welcome and encouraged! We look forward to seeing you there!
