The shores of Lake MaggioreThe 2016 Hublot Polo Cup Ascona on Hublot time
The fourth annual edition of the Hublot Polo Cup Ascona, held on the shores of the stunning Lake Maggiore in Switzerland, was on Hublot time. The magnificent tournament was held from the 15th to the 17th July in the Swiss lakeside resort famed for its Lido, promenades, beautiful villas and luxury hotels.
Majestic horses. Enthusiastic cries from the crowd. Having previously welcomed teams from India, Russia and Brazil, this year's prestigious tournament had a distinctly Dubai flavour. The Hublot Polo Cup of Ascona was then on an oriental atmosphere, in a festive ambiance with numerous activities.
Hublot, which is already involved with prestigious polo tournaments across the world, is especially proud to be associated with Ascona for the fourth year running, as Headline Sponsor and Official Timekeeper. We are always supremely impressed by the organisation of this superb Swiss tournament, which is attended by 4000 guests from Switzerland and abroad.
Ricardo Guadalupe, Hublot's CEO, commented on Hublot's commitment to Ascona, stating: "Sport has always been a part of life at Hublot. But polo is more than simply a sport, it is also an art. Its unique charm is a direct reflection of the high level of watchmaking expertise and ultimate luxury offered by Hublot. Today, Hublot has the great honour of being able to continue our partnership with the Hublot Polo Cup Ascona, organised in an exemplary manner by the dynamic organisation committee, to whom we extend our heartfelt thanks and congratulations."
