Registration won't be a click race, but will stay open for few weeks, with teams chosen by the following factors:
Teams who’ve played in Toronto tournaments before.
Teams with good results in top tournaments (NAs, Worlds etc)
Teams travelling from far
Teams who can play on Friday.
Team with NAH qualified refs, and experience of reffing big tournaments.
The reason for this is that the event organisers want to provide the best entertainment we can to the crowd, which includes having the best possible polo on show, and teams from a variety of scenes.
A registration form will be made available soon.
