On Sunday, 7th June, the prestigious Greenwich Polo Club, kicked off Polo Season in Connecticut with the Monty Waterbury Cup tournament, and a new branding partner in the saddle, MENAJI Men’s Skincare.
“Top athletes deserve top skincare,” said MENAJI Marketing Executive Yvonne Lederer. “Sun, sweat and photographers create the perfect circumstances that put our products to the test.”
The tournament, named after James “Monty” Waterbury, a player with an illustrious career, best remembered as a member of the U.S. team that won five Westchester Cups over Great Britain between 1909 and 1914, drew hundreds of people from all over the world to the Greenwich Polo Club grounds for the event.
Team Shreve, Crump & Low, formed by Christopher Brant, Kris Kampsen, Matias Magrini and Joaquin Panelo, competed against team Airstream with Peter Orthwein, Guillermo Aguero, Michel Dorignac and Mariano Gonzalez. On June 14, Day 2 of the Monty Waterbury Cup tournament, Lederer presented the MVP Award of the match to Guillermo Aguero, on the Airstream team.
“We are delighted to be a part of such a prestigious tradition,” Lederer said.
“As the only high-goal polo club playing during the summer months and one of only four high-goal polo clubs in the U.S., we continue to look for ways to heighten the overall polo experience for our fans,” said Mariana Castro, Director of Marketing of the Greenwich Polo Club. “To do that, we are partnering with lifestyle and luxury brands, like Menaji, that best represent and appeal to the polo community. The East Coast Open in August 23rd through September 6th is our premiere event – televised on NBC Sports Network — and we hope fans who may not have had a chance to experience the thrill of high-goal polo and the polo lifestyle will tune in to see what it’s all about.”
The Greenwich Polo Club, established in 1981, is recognized as one of the elite high-goal polo venues in the world, known for its unmatched roster of legendary teams, professional players, and champion equine athletes. Distinguished families, young entrepreneurs, artists, and well-known personalities are all part of the international dynamic that makes Greenwich Polo Club so unique.
