Wellington, FL - June 29, 2013 - With a successful spring season under its belt, Grand Champions Polo Club has announced its fall season which promises to be one of the most competitive in club history. Nine tournaments are scheduled, including two 20-goal tournaments in November for the club's sixth fall season. The Tackeria Invitational, scheduled for Sept. 27-29, is the first of seven medium goal tournaments, set for Palm City Polo Club in Boca Raton. The fall season-opener will be practice matches to warm up and fine tune for the season.
The remaining fall tournaments at Grand Champions Polo Club are the Oct. 4-6 USPA Fall Classic, Oct. 13-15 USPA Kay Colee Memorial; Oct. 18-20 US Trust Cup, Oct. 25-27 USPA Fall Plates; Nov.1-3 Pedro Morrison Memorial and Nov. 8-10 Palm Restaurant Invitational. The two 20-goal tournaments are the prestigious Oct. 30-Nov. 9 USPA North America Cup and Nov. 13-24 The National 20-Goal Championship.
During the 2012 fall season, Audi dominated the season winning back-to-back USPA North America Cup and USPA National 20-Goal Tournament titles with Marc Ganzi, Carlitos Gracida, Nic Roldan and Hall of Famer and former 10-goaler Carlos Gracida. In the national 20-goal final, Audi edged Piaget, 10-9.
More than fifty invitations have been sent out to patrons who have competed at the club in the past five seasons. High goal team owners will also be invited. The fall season is great preparation for the 20- and 26-goal seasons for 2014 in Wellington. Rosters and lineups change from tournament to tournament. Evenly-matched teams are put together to help build players skills and performance. All tournaments are USPA-sanctioned and have grown in stature since their start in the mid-1990s.
