The Poway Polo Club is holding its inaugural Inter-service Military Polo Match this weekend at the Poway Polo Fields in Poway. Teams from the Army, Marines, Navy and Air Force compete in a round-robin tournament. Admission is free but donations will be taken to support the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund. The tournament, which has been in the planning stages for more than a year, was conceived as a means to provide assistance for wounded service members. Events continue from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.
