The third game will be held on April 7 at 4 p.m., Players will participate in round robin tournament play with the junior teams from Grand Champions and Aspen Polo.
The PTF works to promote the development of junior and youth players in the United States by hosting events such as the Avendano Junior Tournament and monthly Youth matches. Another facet of the PTF's mission is to promote international goodwill through the sport of polo. Hosting teams from around the world in exchange programs allows young players to gain an international perspective on the sport and learn about polo in other countries. Teams from the United States have also travelled to other countries such as England and New Zealand to play.
