The 8th Annual Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships will be here on November 10 and 11 at Westworld of Scottsdale. It's a BIG party, and now is the time to get your tickets. That's why we're scoring you a Smart Shopper Deal of the Day so you don't miss any of the action!
The Polo Party was record-breaking last year, and they're expecting the same this time around!
You'll see the world's longest catwalk Fashion Show and The Canine Couture! There is also a preview of the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction, the F.A.B. tent, standing for fashion, art and beauty. The Phoenix Symphony and others will be performing. The Arizona State University's rugby team will take the longest field for a rugby sevens match between the polo events. Enjoy chocolate, wine, DJ's and of course, the main attraction, POLO!
We caught up with one of the polo players, Natalie Grancharov Camacho! She told us that the most famous polo player, Nacho Figueras with Aspen Valley Polo Club, will be there, alongside other players from Italy, Wales, Arizona and so many more!
Camacho will be representing Arizona. It's her eighth year, though this is not her full-time gig.
"When I'm not horsing around, I'm actually a Process Engineering Manager at Intel in Chandler," Camacho said.
It's a good thing we don't have to be engineers to learn the game. I gave it a shot, no pun intended! You ride a horse, with the reigns in your left hand and the giant mallet in your right. You swing it back, and then forward to hit the ball. It was exhilarating, and I made contact several times!
Camacho explained that it's an adrenaline rush for her. She enjoys controlling a one-thousand-pound horse, moving 20-30 miles per hour, and hitting a ball the size of a tennis ball. She said that some have explained the difficulty of the game as trying to golf during an earthquake.
