The world’s number one player, Adolfo Cambiaso, was on hand to offer inspiration to some of the youngest players of the game at Guards Polo Club recently. Twelve young players took the polo fields in Windsor Great Park in mid-June to compete in the Club’s annual Youth Tournament.
Adolfo was supporting his youngest daughter Myla, who was competing for the La Martina team but no doubt his presence encouraged everyone to raise their game. Each player had the opportunity to have their own personal moment with this 10-goal legend as he presented the prizes, alongside La Martina’s Phoebe Leake.
Cambiaso was not the only high-goal name in the mix. Teams featured Toccalinos, Neros and Merlos’s too, along with an array of familiar Club names. The players, ranging from eight to 16, were divided into three teams – Flemish Farm, Guards Polo Club and La Martina – in a round-robin format of four chukkas of four minutes each.
La Martina came out best of the competition and Lorenzo Nero, playing for La Martina, was named The Most Valuable Player.
La Martina: Lorenzo Nero /Florencio Merlos; Kamran Ali; Myla Cambiaso; Tomas San Roman.
Guards Polo Club: Isabela Lavinia; Alfonso Nero; Alejandro Otamendi; Andre Duncan.
Flemish Farm: Cruz Otamendi; Lucio Toccalino; Freddy Williams; Nicolas San Roman.
