Next generation builds friendship and develops talent at the Guards La Aguada International Youth Tournament
Guards Polo Club and La Aguada Polo Club will team up once again to host the fifth edition of the children’s competition, the Guards La Aguada International Youth Tournament. This popular day of sport will take place on Saturday 8th July at Guards Polo Club, in Windsor Great Park, England.
This event not only builds friendships between some of the youngest players of the game in both England and Argentina, but also reinforces and develops the successful, partnership between Guards Polo Club and La Aguada Polo Club. These two great clubs have worked together for many years, creating events in both Argentina and England.
The Guards La Aguada International Youth Tournament is already firmly established in the polo calendar at Guards Polo Club, creating an excellent platform for the next generation of players to develop their polo skills. As usual, La Aguada Polo Club will have a strong presence on the day through the involvement of the Novillo Astrada brothers – Eduardo Jr., Ignacio and Alejandro. All of them are currently competing in here in the UK, as is La Aguada’s Polo Manager, Thomas Hume.
“This is the fifth year that we have hosted this tournament together with Guards, in England,” says Thomas Hume, “a place where we feel at home. And the members of Guards Polo Club who come to Argentina to play at La Aguada each winter I believe feel the same. There is great co-operation between both clubs”.
Thomas Hume added: “The aim of this tournament is to encourage the players to
build strong bonds; get to know each other and make friends”.
The Guards La Aguada International Youth Tournament will showcase teams featuring children and teenagers aged between 7-15–years-old, who will not only be able to show and develop their skills on the polo ground, but also have a lot of fun with family and friends and of course build new and lasting friendships with their counterparts! The great day of polo at Guards will end with a fabulous BBQ, to which everyone is invited to attend.
