Rouge Absolu Paris took an impressive 8-3 win over DS Automobiles and won the Open de France Féminin, following the championship match that was played at Polo Club du Domaine de Chantilly, located in Apremont, Francia, on Sunday September 18. The ladies polo tournament saw six teams, up to 16 goals (ladies handicap), compete. Teams were split into two leagues. Lineups featured some of the most remarkable players in the world – among them, the renowned French sisters, Elena, Pearl and Lucie Venot, who played as double title holders with a new team, Coliflow, and were the winners in 2020 and 2021 with Maison Décalé and Polo Park Zurich, respectively.

 

Oddly enough, Rouge Absolu Paris defeated DS Automobiles by the same score of their last league match. The lineup, under the command of the British 10-goaler, Hazel Jackson, dominated thoroghout the whole match, widening their advantage chukker after chukker, which made almost impossible every attempt from DS Automobiles, with the renowned French player, Caroline Anier, to get closer in the scoreboard.

 

In other finals, Coliflow earned the fifth place after beating L’Oreal (received two goals on handicap) by a 8-2 score, while the third place went to Yves Delorme who needed an extra chukka to defeat Maison Décalé 6-5.
