Wellington, FL – February 6, 2013 – The highly-anticipated Fourth Annual International Gay Polo Tournament, one of the highlights of the winter equestrian season, is set for Saturday April 13, 2013 at Grand Champions Polo Club. This year the event is planning some enhancements that will create a new fresh feeling to the event.

The “Elite” tent is new this year. Decorated with an upscale equestrian theme, the Elite tent will be a hub of the event where attendees will enjoy entertainment, food and drinks. The tent is open to all attendees and will serve as the venue for the all-new dance party to be held immediately following the trophy presentations.

“Each year, the organizers of the Gay Polo Tournament look for ways to improve and update the overall experience,” said Chip McKenney, founder and Executive Director of the Gay Polo League (GPL). “Everything is new and exciting this year! New sponsors are participating in the event and new international players are competing this year!”

A limited number of VIP tables are available for purchase prior to the event. VIP tables include seating for eight on center field. VIP’s will enjoy tableside service, including hors d’oeuvres, beverages and other gourmet selections throughout the polo matches.

“Adding the VIP tent gives GPL the opportunity to partner with a well-known and highly respected event organizer from the LGBT community, Rodney Briguglio co-owner of Elite Meetings and Events,” said McKenney. “Rodney’s experience guarantees VIPs a great ambiance, elegant seating, wonderful food, full bar and table service in additional to other perks.”
