On Thursday, Khargoosh Darreh defeated Norooz Abad 3 to 2 and Qasr-e Firoozeh lost against Kanoon 1 to 5. The final round, on May 21, will have Kanoon facing Khargoosh Darreh for the first place of the tournament, while Qasr-e Firoozeh and Norooz Abad will be competing for the third place.

Another tournament, the Adab Polo Cup, was organized in March 2014, between Qasr-e Firoozeh and Norooz Abad, to enhance the handicap of novice women polo players. Qasr-e Firoozeh achieved first place winning 5 to 2.
