Polo events & clinics

“A polo handicap is a passport to the world.” Sir Winston Churchill


Polo is a very dynamic and spectacular sport.
Today, upwards of 84 countries play polo. In the past 20 years we have been responsible for the organisation and management of many polo events and clinics. In 2015 we were be responsible for the organisation of The Polo Picknick, Polo aan de Vecht, The Jaeger-LeCoultre Summer Polo and City Polo Maastricht and other tailor made polo events. In 2003 we were asked by the Federation of International Polo to organise the FIP Cartier European Polo Championships on Polo Club Vreeland. This 10 day event was organised in 2005. This event was a huge success both on and of the polo ground.

Polo events

 

City Polo Maastricht

The concept of City Polo Maastricht, playing polo in the heart of an ancient city, was created by PRO SPORT | Sport & Hospitality. The first, very successful but cold, edition in 2012 was funded by six entrepreneurs from Maastricht and several companies. Today we are working on the fifth edition of City Polo Maastricht that will take place on the Vrijthof square in Maastricht. City Polo Maastricht is organized during the world’s greatest art and antiques fair in the world, TEFAF.

Polo clinics

 
At Polo Club Vreeland (15 minutes from Amsterdam) we organize Polo clinics. Our Polo manager Robert Watson is a professional Polo player from New Zealand. During the clinic Robert will explain all about the history of Polo and will teach you and your business relations how to ride a Polo Pony and hit your first Polo balls. A Polo clinic really is the perfect first step to get acquainted with the King of Sports. A Polo clinic can be organized for 15 persons persons. Horse riding experience is not necessary, a cap and boots are. The program can be tailor-made with a lunch or a Argentinian style barbeque (Asado) after the clinic.

ABOUT POLO


Polo is not only the world’s oldest ball game; it is also the world’s oldest team sport. The first matches took place 2,500 years ago in Persia. The oldest polo field is located in the city of Isfahan, and stables can be found near the Taj Mahal where the polo horses of the Mughal emperor were once kept. Polo was the sport of the nobility among the Persian, Indian, Mongolian, and Chinese rulers.
The sport soon became a favourite among British officers in India, too. They set up their own polo club in 1859 and took the sport back home with them to Great Britain. The popularity of polo has grown enormously in recent decades. It is now played in more than 70 countries and attracts millions of spectators every year.
