One of Dubai’s most exclusive and unique, sport and lifestyle events will hit the sands of Dubai this March & April.
The 12th edition of the Beach Polo Cup Dubai, organized by the company Mamemo Productions, will be held next April 1 & 2. The event is already a trade mark and has grown to 33 cities globally.
One of Dubai’s most exclusive and unique, sport and lifestyle events will start with 12 local and international polo players saddle up and ride their ponies along The Walk, JBR, on Friday 25 March, a full week before the main event unfolds at Skydive Dubai.
“Each year the Beach Polo Cup Dubai attracts the local, regional and international polo community to Dubai for a signature showcase of our beach variation of the Sport of Kings,” said Gaby Katiela, Tournament and Event Director. “The event provides an opportunity for existing polo fans and those new to the sport to watch the polo players in a luxurious, premium environment that highlights the best of Dubai. While the Beach Polo Cup Dubai maintains the prestige of the sport, the event strips away the old, privileged perception of polo in our luxury lifestyle concept that appeals to a younger and social crowd.”
The 2016 edition of the Beach Polo Cup Dubai will be held under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman, Dubai Sports Council, for the second year in a row and will receive the support of the Dubai Sports Council once more.
Prior to the tournament, an exclusive, invite-only Player’s Night will take place on Thursday 31 March at the luxorious Ritz Carlton, Dubai.
Attention then turns to the main event on Friday 1 and Saturday 2 April as the mix of Emirati and international players take to a purpose-built beach venue at Skydive Dubai. The on-field chukkers will take place with the iconic Dubai Marina skyline as a backdrop.
Day one of the tournament starts with guest arrival from 5pm with the official opening ceremony kicking off at 6pm, followed by two matches played against the setting sun.
The day two action sees the highly anticipated semi-finals, Grand Final and Awarding ceremony, while off-field highlights include sponsor-led interactive zones.
