Amazing! The last two weeks we could welcome many kids and teens for the A Quechua Polo Summer Camp at our Poloclub at Kumberg/Graz, Austria. With polo coach José from Argentine, all participants could improve their game. Beside exercises like stick and ball, the kids and teens could play many Chukkers of arena- and grass polo. In addition, they learned much about horsemanship and the right grooming and handling of the polo ponies. Most of all, everyone had a very good time!
What a great weekend! We welcomed 15 new Polistas from Styrian Universities for the USI Polo Beginners Course on Saturday and Sunday. All of them were doing pretty well so that we could already play some Chukker on Sunday. All in all, you can say that all students passed the course with Summa Cum Laude. It was the second course in cooperation with the University Sports Institute (USI), after the course back in October 2017. Back then, 12 of 15 slots had been booked. For this course, all available
