Gay Polo Tourney Debuts in Palm Beach
The 1st Annual International Gay Polo Tournament Presented by Credit Suisse will take place at the Grand Champions Polo Club in Wellington, FL, on April 3, 2010, from noon to 5 p.m.
GPL is the sole international polo league to be primarily comprised of lesbian and gay players. Founded to enable gay men and women to share their interest in this unique sport, GPL has created a community of passionate, like-minded athletes.
GPL’s mission is to provide the LGBT community with the opportunity to develop and refine the necessary skills for participating in this exceptional sport. To achieve its mission, GPL continues to promote participation in amateur competitions and foster fellowship and goodwill among all members.
The 1st Annual International Gay Polo Tournament will have as one of its sponsors Equestrian Life, a media company dedicated to the equestrian community and horse lovers across all breeds and disciplines. They will not only sponsor one of the competing teams, but also provide media coverage for the event, including on the web.
Deana Berquist, President & Co-founder of EquestrianLife.com, stated, “Equestrian Life is proud to be partnered with the Gay Polo League (GPL) as both a team sponsor and the GPL’s media partner. We look forward to the beauty of polo and the excitement of the inaugural U.S. GPL Tournament.”
The Gay Polo Tournament will be the first of its kind, and in the future participants hope this idea will continue to expand around the world. The founders are Chip McKenney and Tom Landry, both optimistic that this will be a great kick-off to a great idea.
