29 January 2017 was a culmination of three days celebrating the best snow polo in the world. And on the frozen lake of St. Moritz, Malaysia’s own BP Polo family team made history by being the first Asian and Malaysian family polo team to play in the tournament.
Team Maserati, which consist of James Beh, Lovy Beh, Joevy Beh, Dato’ Chevy Beh and Garvy Beh, who were up against Team Perrier-Jouët, lost in a close match of 4-5 during the last of the runners-up. Though they didn’t win the Snow Polo World Cup 2017, Malaysia still welcomes its heroes for being a part of the world’s only high-goal tournament on snow.
The first time a polo competition took place on snow was in St. Moritz in 1985. Since then, the Snow Polo World Cup has reigned over the last weekend in January on the frozen lake of St. Moritz. But it was in 2014, well-known exponents of snow polo in Switzerland founded Evviva Polo St. Moritz Ltd and signed a long-term contract with the city of St. Moritz, thus securing a sustained continuation of the Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz.
