By Erin Lentz | May 23, 2019 | People Feature

The son of Marc and Melissa Ganzi, Grant is one of the youngest players in the nation playing 26-goal polo in the World Polo League for his team, Grand Champions. He was a U.S. Open semifinalist for the United States Polo Association, and has won the USPA North American Cup and USPA National 20-Goal Tournament. A third-generation polo player, he won the 2015 and 2017 St. Regis World Snow Polo tournaments.

On the Field: “Grant is playing with and against the best players in the world,” says his mom, Melissa. “He has a strong intellect on the field, so he knows the right places to be. If he doesn’t stick you the first time, he’ll get you the next.”

Off the Field: Football, and learning more about business. “He comes to Aspen to help us operate the club,” adds Melissa, “and helps teach our Kids Polo program in Carbondale.”

Favorite Aspen Cross-Training Methods: “I love to kayak when I’m in Aspen, and I also like biking. Both are great exercises in different aspects of what you need to train for polo.”
