Desert palm poloDubai Polo Club

Polo in the UAE has come a long way since its humble beginnings when the game was played on sand. The lack of facilities combined with the vision of founder Ali Albwardy to popularise the sport led to the development of Desert Palm in 1994, home to the internationally renowned Dubai Polo Club. 

Located 20 minutes away from Dubai's city centre, Desert Palm has become the epicentre of polo in Dubai and is recognised as one of the leading polo estates in the world. It provides an idyllic backdrop for numerous international tournaments and has put Dubai on the global sporting map. 

Over 250 polo ponies are stabled, trained and played during the year with several Argentinean polo professionals on hand during the season, which runs from October to April. The Club offers lessons and instruction for beginners through to advanced players and club chukkas are organised six days a week.

In addition to housing first-class polo facilities, Desert Palm is home to an award-winning boutique hotel, 85 exclusive residences, a riding school and Riding for the Disabled Association Dubai.
