Cincinnati will soon grow to be the capital city for playing polo as per the initiative taken by Mark Sedacca. In July, Mark Sedacca who was being elected as the governor of the U.S. Polo Association’s Mid-States Circuit said that he wants Cincinnati to become a central place for conducting polo games such that players after playing in their own respective regional areas can come here to compete as finalists. Two polo fields, one in Warren County and one other in Clermont County have been chosen to conduct tournament games of polo throughout the summer. Yet another appeal of these counties to potential buyers looking into Mason OH homes for sale.
In summer, along with the tournament games, Miami Meadows Park is going to conduct championship polo games. Miami township trustees can allow playing regular tournament games here in the park from next summer once the first ever played polo game takes place. Cincinnati home buyers can add the attraction of polo games to the arsenal of entertainment this area of Ohio has to offer. Four players in every team with about 8 horses in each game score more than 6 to a maximum of 12 goals. One of the trustees of the park, Ken Tracy has expressed his gratitude to become a host to an event like polo game.
