Chicago Beach Polo World Cup 2011

By Brent Lewis

Members of the Women’s Lufthansa Private Jet (gray) and Gascon (purple) teams participated in the Grey Goose Chicago Beach Polo World Cup on Saturday and Sunday at North Avenue Beach. Originally, the tournament was held every year in Miami, Florida. However, Bruce Orosz, who brought the sport to the United States, saw the beauty of North Avenue Beach and knew he had to hold the tournament in Chicago. A portion of the funds raised will go to the 100 Club of Chicago, which helps families of fallen fire and police officers.
