He also plays polo
Walsh, well known internationally for his advocacy, may not be as well known for his polo skills, but they will be in evidence on Aquidneck on Saturday.

Walsh has been a polo advocate and player for a few years now, and also has played in numerous charity events across the country.
A weekly door prize drawing will award two winners a gift card, courtesy of Massage Envy. The match will be followed by a trophy presentation and cocktail hour to mingle with the players.
