The children entertained themselves at a dedicated kids area by hopping on a huge bouncy caste or getting free pony rides assisted by Santa’s elf. Before the final match, a horse riding Santa made his way across the field bearing gifts for all the kids.  As all the presents were distributed and Santa waved goodbye, the league kicked off with a match between Hesketh/Mahra and Dr A/Ankora polo teams. The first chukker had the teams on equal footing at 2 – 2. Dr A/Ankora Polo team took the lead with subsequent goals from Dr Abbar and Maxi Malacalza during the second chukker and gained a 4 goal advantage.
