The club owned by Sebastien Le Page and Morgan Van Obenbroek since June 2013, started in 1998 when Markus Graff, an investment manager founded the facilities.
After the purchase of the club by regular member Sebastien and his wife Morgan, the club began its most active stage that keeps on incrementing. They quickly made it become the most active of all clubs in the country, and the one with the highest number of members and tournaments.
It took more than 8 years to the adventurous couple to finish their new stables and clubhouse, but they finally made it, and with the inauguration of such top-notch facilities, the club seeks to raise the level of polo and become more competitive. The goal is to not only be one of the most active clubs in Switzerland but in all the region D/A/CH (Germany, Austria and Switzerland).
The new clubhouse features high standard and classy facilities: a bar-restaurant, terrace, changing rooms, bathrooms, comfortable and homely apartments and parking. This great building effort, together with the personnel that endeavors to offer their best services, makes the club not only a place for good polo, but a touristic destination as well.
In addition to this, the owners wish to give their horses and employees the maximum comfort and best working and living conditions, so they have built additional 57 boxes, private saddle rooms every 8 horses, a horse walker and several extra facilities necessary to train and accommodate the beloved animals.
On 2016, the club began its re-activation, and both guests, players and sponsors gave great feedback: their response was extremely positive. The most notable tournaments on that year were the 17th International Ladies Cup that brought together 5 highly competitive teams, 26 sponsors and 200 VIP guests, and had the honor to count with the presence of the iconic Sunny Hale, who sadly passed away recently, but left her mark on the Club.
The other main tournament was the Luxury Trophy, sponsored by Piaget, that had a great turnover of spectators. On 2017, all the mentioned facilities will be officially inaugurated, and the new era will start. Polo Park Zurich has teamed up with PoloLine to give the polo fans exclusive reports, photos and all the details on this new stage the club is starting.
