Players, teams and ponies from a number of countries are competing in the 2015 PIPA International Beach Polo Championship Tour, vying to take home the overall Tour champion’s crown. This year the following sponsorship and partnering opportunities are available:
The PIPA is the World Association of Polo Instructors and Polo Players, similar to the ATP in Tennis or the PGA in Golf. PIPA features “non patron based” Polo, which is the real and authentic polo sport only played at the world’s top locations such as in Argentina or England. No paying patrons are participating, rather only experienced international players. “Non patron based” polo is fast, dynamic and a pleasure to watch, especially in the special Snow Arenas of approximately 30 x 70 meters, where the audience is right next to the action.
PIPA makes polo more accessible. Polo is the new trendsport, but needs to be brought to the people. Therefore, more and more polo events are played as Arena Polo, which means that the normal polo field size of approximately 200 x 300 meters is sized down to fields of 30 x 60 meters, up to 50 x 80 meters. During the winter season PIPA also runs some of the most prestigious Snow Polo events, such as the one held at Bad Gastein or at Seefeld.
