Whether you call it the „Game of Kings“, think of the famous polo scene in the Hollywood film „Pretty Woman“, imagine Prince Charles and his sons on their horses or the champagne-sipping High Society- polo always finds publicity. What makes this sport so fascinating?

Polo brings together many facets. The audiences experience elegance and precision on the playing field, which is 7 times the size of a football field. Speed and raciness can be admired, both amongst the horses and the perfectly hit balls, which can reach speeds of up to 150kmh.
