The Polish International Championships – IVY POLO CUP 2017, one of the most prestigious polo tournaments in the country, took place for the fourth time at the IVY CLUB in Śliwinki. During the occasion we had the privilege to welcome some of the most talented polo teams as well as their accompanying guests to our club.

The Championships, which are organized in Śliwinki, are an extremely popular event – not only among the player themselves but also their friends and family members. This kind of event is always an excellent opportunity to take part in a one-of-a-kind meeting as well as a noble rivalry and follow the action on the field.

Four clubs competed against each other during the tournament: Warsaw Polo Club, Jack & Friends, Sowiniec Polo Club and Ivy Polo Club. It was the Sowiniec Polo Club, with team members Leszek Jurga, Mateusz Świtalski, Marcin Świtalski and Facu Cordeu, that emerged victorious from the emotion-packed rivalry. A member of the victorious team, Marcin Świtalski, received the tournament’s most valuable player award while Cameta, a mare belonging to Facu Cordeu, was honored as the tournament’s best horse.

Just like in previous years, this year’s tournament turned out to be an significant social gathering. Important and well-known personalities from the world of sports, business and the arts were all among our guests at the event. All of the participants admired the noble sport that is polo and at halftime, in accordance with tradition, tamped down the field which was riddled with hoofs marks.
