Snow Polo World Cup 2016

The largest snow polo tournament in the world is going to be the 5th year running at Tianjin Goldin Metropolitan Polo club from January 26th to 31st, 2016. The world’s greatest polo players and enthusiastic polo fans will gather at the world class standard polo venue in China.

Hosted by the Federation of International Polo and co-organized by the Tianjin Goldin Metropolitan Polo Club, Fortune Heights Snow Polo World Cup 2016 features 6 top teams from Argentina, Canada, Chile, England, France, and Hong Kong China who will go all out to deliver a winter polo extravaganza this year.

With all the action and physicality of traditional field polo, snow polo is even more fast-paced due to the smaller playing field and the snow-packed surface, presenting a fascinating challenge to horses and players. The orange snow polo ball, made of inflatable vinyl, is more unpredictable in flight than the standard polo ball, and teams consist of three players rather than the traditional four.

Snow polo is a tradition that originated in the glamorous ski resorts of Switzerland, but it is rapidly acquiring a new home in China at the Tianjin Goldin Metropolitan Polo Club. The vision of Tianjin Metropolitan Polo Club is to develop the highly regarded community in China for those that value excellence, tradition and nobility as well as luxury. The objective to host the international snow polo tournament is to create a home for the sport of polo in China, Asia. This signifies the golden milestone of snow polo in Asia as well as China.
