In Ebreichsdorf the Slovakian Open was held with the participation of 8 teams from different European countries. The flawless event organized by Peter Godanyi together with Schloss Ebreichsdorf Polo Club, attracted players from Austria, Germany, Hungary, Slovakia, Sweden, France, Russia and of course several Argentine professional who enjoyed this wonderful weekend of Polo, along with a glamorous reception on Saturday. Elegant and very entertaining, with food, drinks, music and exotic dances that the numerous guests could enjoy throughout the afternoon, while they were witnesses of the tough competition in the playground.

Enira team took the coveted trophy after beating Frankfurt (who played their second consecutive Final) in a hard-fought match, as expected in a Final like this, but with some players a little overexcited.

Cowdray Park Polo Club
The Spirit of the Game.
The HPA rules start with a preamble stating that polo is a game ...that should be played…within the Spirit of the Game. Whilst the FIP rules do not actually use the words, the Spirit of the game, careful examination of the regulations will reveal that many are in fact offenses against the “Spirit of the Game” even if this strange spirit is not actually defined. In the AAP version, the first line states “Polo has its etiquette”, it is an art to be practiced and a science that is developed almost thought one’s entire life.….a man creates his own obligation to behave like a gentleman.” 

So much for the words handed down by generations of polo players, but it is may be worthwhile, to reflect, from time to time, perhaps in the club house after a hard fought game over a quiet glass, whether etiquette was followed, whether at all times players were seen and perhaps in modern times heard to be gentlemen, and if after all the Spirit of the Game came out of the match tarnished or even more bright and shiny than it was at the outset. Perhaps a little quiet contemplation away from the excitement and stress, and the motivation of winning would ensure that the greatest honour in polo, that of keeping the Spirit of the Game bright and burning, remains just that, the greatest honour in polo, at whatever level, in whatever country, and whatever culture.
