All the Partners have a passion for polo and will be living at the Club when it is completed. The key players are 36, 33 & 30 years old, so will be at the Club and in the saddle for many years yet.

They are investing their own resources in the project, which is in itself a guarantee that the project will be completed. They will also make their homes at the Club.

* Francisco has been involved with the development of numerous Polo facilities including the well known “Don Wilfredo” and “La Vanguardia” complexes.
