POLO P L A Y E R S E D I T I O N 37 created by Tamara Fox in England where she matched funds provided by the HPA to send two young ladies from England to South Africa to play polo. One ended up being invited to play on an eight-goal team," said Jones. The WIPN will also raise money through the sale of products, such as T- shirts, hats, hoodies and vests. Each player is responsible for maintaining their profile and including information about polo, as well as other interests they may have. Clubs will also be tasked with keeping their calendars up-to- date. And promotional club videos can be posted as well. Additionally, the USPA and the Argentina Polo Association has given WIPN permission to post some of their videos related to women's polo. There will be links to polo associations around the world as well as FIP. Jones said, "My colleagues and I believe the WIPN will help promote the sport, the associations and encourage new memberships around the world. I think clubs can really benefit too. WIPN visitors can learn about each participating club, their player members, their events, and their polo schools if available. The WIPN can provide a platform for each club to promote itself as a desirable travel destination." "Our ultimate goal is to provide every visitor with relevant information about players, up-and-coming events, clubs, and their polo schools ... certified female instructors, and certified female umpires all under one roof," said Jones. "In addition, there will be plenty of room for polo businesses to advertise, such as polo equipment sales, horse sales and rentals, horse transport, health and wellness ... and [travel companies]. "It is really beautiful to see such an influx of women wanting to participate, coming from collegiate programs, women who are just getting into the game and the veterans of the game that are all really energized by this. It's been very gratifying. "The WIPN has the potential to unify women's polo for the better. Collectively via the website, women could have a stronger position at the table to offer valuable suggestions on how best to improve tournaments, clubs, associations, and the game in general."
