Supanaree Sumonmart, the Queen Sirikit Centre for Breast Cancer Foundation manager, stated that “current statistics have shown that breast cancer is the leading cause of death among women in Thailand. The Foundation is granted a Royal Patronage from Her Majesty Queen Sirikit that acts as a sanctuary and provides care and support to breast cancer patients. This non-profit organization saves lives through providing a state-of-the-art cohesive ‘Prevent, Cure & Care’ approach to breast cancer patients and a nurturing support system for those in need.

This year, there will be 4 all-female teams participating in the Pink Polo competition, consisting of players from various countries including Team La Familia / Marengo – Malaysia, Team San Eugenio – Switzerland, Team 1003 POLO – China, and the host Team Thai Polo – Thailand.

Thailand’s first lady polo player Nunthinee Tanner, one of the chief competition organizers, said that this year in addition to the ladies polo competition there will also be a fun and entertaining flea market, Lampang horse carriage tours, a dog fashion show by the Yorkshire Terrier Club Thailand and a horseback fashion show featuring celebrities and youth horse riders.
