Our event seeks to attract local attention to the sport of Segway Polo while simultaneously promoting Barbados as the number one sports tourism destination in the Caribbean.
(PRWEB) April 30, 2014
During May 1st - 4th, 2014 the Segway Polo Club of Barbados is hosting an open tournament aptly named "Segway Polo in Paradise - Barbados Cup 2014".
Brett Callaghan, Founder and CEO of Totally Barbados, and a member of the original Barbados Flyin' Fish Segway Polo team, explains: "When we started planning this tournament we wanted to offer the international players more than just Segway Polo.
There is no better place than Barbados, with the sun, sea, beaches, great food and tourist attractions providing the ideal environment for visitors from around the world."
Barbados has been home to some of the best Segway Polo in the world since 2009, when a newly founded team called the Barbados Flyin' Fish traveled to Cologne, Germany and returned home as World Champions.
The following year, the title was successfully defended at the 2010 World Championship held at the Lion Castle Polo Estate in St. Thomas, Barbados.
Now, four years later, Barbados is again welcoming players from around the world to enjoy some competitive Segway Polo.
Under the motto of "Segway Polo in Paradise", this time it is not a World Championship, but an attempt to combine the sport of Segway Polo with a memorable vacation experience.
Match play is restricted to the hours of 8 to 11 in the morning and 7 to 10 in the evening, allowing the visitors plenty of time during the day to take in the attractions of Barbados.
"Our event seeks to attract local attention to the sport of Segway Polo while simultaneously promoting Barbados as the number one sports tourism destination in the Caribbean." adds Ralf Luther, President of the Segway Polo Club of Barbados.
"This year, rather than hosting the competition on a horse polo field, we have teamed up with the University of the West Indies, and all matches will be played on their Hockey Turf in the middle of the beautiful Cave Hill Campus in St. Michael."
The competition will be held during May 1st - 4th, 2014; for more information you can contact Totally Barbados.
