Ladies on Horseback - Plus Extra Girls, Girls, Girls
Women's polo is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. Over the Australia Day 2013 weekend, Perth Polo Club will be hosting the Ladies Cup International Polo Tournament following the success of the inaugural Cup in 2012.
The tournament will attract local and international players, with six teams battling it out to win the coveted Ladies Cup trophy.
As WA's only women's polo tournament, the Ladies Cup is aimed at encouraging women into the sport and promoting polo to a wider audience.
A weekend of exciting female and male polo matches, entertainment and competitions is planned for the Australia Day weekend.

Located at the scenic Kings Meadow Polo Ground, Guildford, spectators are encouraged to come down and join in the festivities, and support the girls on their polo field.
Following an Australia Day BBQ on January 26, Perth Polo Club invites you to watch the finals matches on January 27.
Have a beer or some lunch in the Beer Garden, check out the trade stalls, watch the Girls Girls Girls trick riders in action, join in some great competitions or just take the family and enjoy a picnic under the trees.
