The annual 137 Pillars Polo Puissance Cup was held alongside the James Ashton Trophy on 16 and 17 March for an exhilarating and fun weekend of the highest quality horse polo, food, drinks and entertainment.

The 137 Pillars Polo Puissance Cup and James Ashton Trophy takes place each year at Polo Escape in Pattaya, Thailand. The outstanding polo retreat houses 23 lodge rooms and villas, an infinity edge swimming pool and Jacuzzi overlooking the polo field, a rustic restaurant and bar, as well as a tennis court, gym and a very innovative outdoor cinema.

The full-size polo field at Polo Escape is easily one of the very best in the region, and was designed by Alejandro Lavista Llanos, Argentina's prominent polo field engineer and consultant. There is also stabling and paddocks for over 100 horses.

This year's 137 Pillars Polo Puissance Cup and James Ashton Trophy attracted some of the top names in horse polo including the Kalaan brothers – Uday and Angad, Fernando Rivera, Santiago Lujan, Nicolas Pieroni and some of Thailand's top home-grown talents and upcoming stars such as Nutthadith Sila-Amornsak, Satid Wongkraso and Cliff Punyanitya, to name but a few.

King Power, with a +6 goal handicap, claimed this year's James Ashton Trophy beating Polo Escape by 5.5 to 3 in the final game of the weekend. King Power also beat Kuppa by 7.5 – 5, while Polo Escape managed a 5-2 win over Kuppa.

Cliff Punyanitya kept his cool to beat fellow Kuppa team mate Angad Kalaan and win the 137 Pillars Polo Puissance Cup in a thrilling playoff.

Mr Chris Stafford, COO of 137 Pillars Hotels & Resorts, said, "We have some very big plans for this tournament. In fact, our aim is to make this polo weekend one of the largest and most exclusive international polo events in the region. The venue could not be any better, and I foresee the day when players, and fans, from Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia and elsewhere in the region put this on their list of must attend annual events. We've got a lot to do, but all the ingredients are in place and we we've already started working on 2019!"

Sponsors for this year's 137 Pillars Polo Puissance Cup and James Ashton Trophy include Perrier-Jouet, Royal Salute, MaxWin, Kuppa, King Power and Lotus Arts de Vivre.
