Handicaps Foreign Players
Foreign players who take part in tournaments in Switzerland
and are listed in the current and official handicap list of
the SPA must play with their valid Swiss handicap which is current
on the first day of the tournament. If the foreign player is
not listed in the current and official handicap list of the
SPA he/she must fill-in a written application on a form provided
by the SPA and he/she must play with his/her valid handicap
of his/her main country of polo residence which is current on
the first day of the tournament.
The highest handicap applies to the participation of all foreign players in tournaments
in Switzerland in all countries worldwide, which determine handicaps annually and have an independent
handicap commission. The applicable rules of the Hurlingham Polo Association apply subsidiarily.
The respective Swiss handicaps of domestic and foreign players always take precedence.
For players of Non-European origin the following special rules
apply: Non-European players, including playing grooms, with
a handicap of +2 or less must provide the organiser of a tournament
the above mentioned form and with an official confirmation of
their handicap, issued by the association of their country,
respectively their country of residence, which clearly states
that the named player has held an official handicap within the
last 12 months. Only then are Non-European players permitted
to play. If they cannot provide this written confirmation they
must play with a minimum handicap of +2, regardless of their
playing capabilities. In case of doubt, should the tournament
organiser or a playing team or player so wish, the executive
board of the SPA decides the permissible handicap.
