"The idea of playing polo on the beach is an exciting concept," said Sunny Hale, President of the Women's Championship Tournament and the highest rated female polo player in the world. Rated at an impressive 5-goals in the arena and on the sand, Hale is expected to set the bar for the field of 18-24 players who will be participating in this inaugural event.
