More on British Polo Day Abu Dhabi


We are honoured to be invited back to the Ghantoot Racing and Polo Club.  Founded in 1997 as a private, royal venue based on the vision of the late president, HH Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan. It now operates under the patronage of his son, HH Sheikh Falah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

 

It is one of the most prestigious polo clubs in the world and has played host to HRH Prince Charles and in 2014, hosted HRH Prince Harry for the Sentebale Polo Cup.

 

Polo is by no means new to the Middle East. It is believed that polo began in Persia as far back as the 5th Century BC, however, the modern game as we know it was rediscovered in India in the 19th Century by the British Army. Jaeger-LeCoultre, responding to the need for Officers to have a watch suitable for polo, developed the Reverso and we are delighted that they are continuing this tradition and association as our Official Global Timekeeper.

 

Continuing on the military theme, members of the Cavalry & Guards regiments of the British Army will start proceedings with a game of camel polo. There will also be a Brompton bicycle polo exhibition which showcases another version of the game that was an Olympic Sport back in 1906.

 

The main highlight of the evening will be the British Exiles team taking on the Ghantoot team which we anticipate to be another thrilling encounter.

 

We are pleased to raise money for WAHA under the patronage of HH Sheikha Shamsa bint Hamdan Al Nahyan in an auction this evening and we hope you will give generously.

 

As ever, we are indebted to all the partners for making this event possible.

 

We hope you enjoy British Polo Day Abu Dhabi.
