Today’s the big day for the start of the highly anticipated Battle of the Sexes and Barbados vs The Villages USA.

Each year, the top polo players split into teams to give everyone a show of who’s got the stuff to command the title of the year.

Last Sunday, Adam Dean of the Barbados Polo Club said they had, “One of the biggest crowds we have had for a while; a good competitive game. Barbados came out on top.”

That occasion was the epic final showdown of Gildan Barbados vs Reservation Caribbean Canada, and it certainly did not disappoint. Barbados was victorious at the final whistle, winning 3–1.

More than just a polo match for the ages, the after party with Alan Sheppard from sunset was an event not to be missed. The champagne flowed and the legendary Sheppard was entertaining, underscoring that Sunday Polo Events are not to be missed.

Deane was quite pleased with the performances of the day and the after-match lime.

“Yes, definitely, crowd stayed on until after Alan was finished, everyone dancing and so on. We are having him back on 23rd February and 8th March.”

Today’s Battle of the Sexes match will see more than just men versus women, but husband versus wife!

Stephen Williams will take the field opposing his better half Linda Williams to see who comes out on top when the first ball is thrown at 3:15 p.m at Holder’s Polo Club.

According to Deane, “Many of the ladies coming in this year are from the USA. I have not seen them all play but they all play on the international ladies circuit. This year, The Villages team is bringing two professionals – a 5-goaler and a 3-goaler. So their team total will be 10 goals; will be a very good standard match.”

Always more than just polo, everyone should be super excited for today’s Field prize as well as Find the cork on February 16 at Polo at Holders and the chance to win a Private Island Tour around our beautiful island for you and 11 of your friends compliments of Sweet Fuh Dayz Tours.
