AAP Confirm Triple Crown Dates

Tortugas Open will begin on Sunday

After delays, confusion and leaked updates, the Argentine Polo Association has finally confirmed the 2020 Triple Crown dates. The first leg of the Triple Crown, The Tortugas Open will begin on Sunday 1 November and run until Tuesday 10 November, with the tournament played under the strictest health protocols approved by the Ministry of Health including ‘bubbles’ to be used on the premises for the organisations taking part in the competition – an innovative concept which has yet to be used in Argentine polo. Four days later, The Hurlingham Open will begin on Saturday 14 November, with the Final on Sunday 22 November. Both The Hurlingham and Tortugas Opens will be played at the Alfredo Lalor Headquarters of the AAP in Pilar and will be played by eight teams with direct elimination. 
Two additional teams will join the existing eight teams for The 127th HSBC Argentine Open tournament, the final phase of The Triple Crown, which will begin on 28 November and continue until 19 December, and these teams will be decided in the Classification Tournament for La Copa Remonta & Veterinaria which will be played between 8 – 16 November. 
The fourth edition of the HSBC Argentine Women's Polo Open will be played from Wednesday 9 December and will conclude, as usual, on the same day as The 127th HSBC Argentine Open in Palermo on 19 December. Eduardo Novillo Astrada, President of the AAP, commented, “Once again I want to thank the AAP Board of Directors and the entire team. Also, to the authorities who supported us, helped us and worked to make the Argentine polo season a reality today. Finally, I also want to sincerely thank the players who backed us and continue to do so. This shows us once again that serious work with clear objectives pays dividends.”
