Three tournaments from May 7 to 26th June, 50 game days, and the return of great professional players from France, Argentina and the UK in particular to Chantilly... The PGH Cup (named after the founder of the club), the Charity Cup and the Coupe Laversine will be played on the level of 12 goals. The games are incredibly fast and one can discover great talents from Argentina. It is here that Facundo Pieres, triple champion of the Argentinian Open – the ultimate reference in polo – had made his foreign debut. Pancho Bensadon, semi-finalist at the same Open also won several tournaments of this Spring Triple Crown.
In fact up to ten players who won this mythical Argentinian Open have played in Chantilly, among them two members of the Dolfina (Juan-Martin Nero and Pablo McDonough) and two players from Ellerstina (Polito and Facundo Pieres). Seven other players who took part in this « Abierto » (Open) have also taken part in the Chantilly games. They are all or have been handicap 9 or 10.
The French Opens, the Great Rendez-Vous in September.
Some of these players such as Polito Pieres, Lucas Monteverde (four times champion of Argentina), Alfredo Capella (revelation of the 2015 Abierto), Facundo Sola or Ignacio Toccalino have animated the prestigious French Open (16 goals). It is the most important competition in Europe at this time of year. About 8 teams generally compete in a challenging tournament over 3 weeks. The games are breathtaking, fast and furious, fiercely disputed - many encounters ended last year with just a small goal scored during overtime. These matches can be enjoyed during the week, at the end of the day, where only other players and the petiseros are spectators, or over the week-end, when they are commented for a better understanding to an audience that is less expert. The day of the final culminates with a huge party around the Terrain d’Honneur.
Five years ago the most famous tournament in French Polo turned female with the launch of the Ladies' French Open, dedicated entirely, as its name suggests, to female players who are on the increase. This polo is calmer and also more refined. However it is also fiercely competitive. In 2016 the level of the tournament is reaching a new point and passing to 16 goals (in female handicap); the tournament is now the ultimate, highest level championship outside the frontiers of Argentina.
