Greeting from the President
Dear members, friends and those with a newly-found interest in our sport,
we are delighted to present our newly-designed website. In a forward-looking style, we’re here to keep you informed on all matters pertaining to the wonderful sport of polo and its players and supporting organisations. Here you can get to know the clubs, teams and players and learn about their triumphs, discover new things about polo and last but not least, keep up to date on tournaments and social activities of the German Polo Federation!
I hope you will have fun galloping through our website. We are, of course, always open to suggestions, feedback, news and notifications (for example tournament results). Our organisation and the sport of polo is kept alive by the keen participation of our members!
On behalf of all active polo players in Germany, I look forward to a fun, fair, sporting and engaging polo season.
Let's play Polo!
Impressions: Polo in Germany
Called the “Sport of Kings” in the old days, polo has developed into a fast-paced leisure activity for hundreds of athletes (and even more horses) in Germany. Since the foundation of the DPV in 1972, both its membership numbers and its activities have grown considerably. – This includes everything from local and regional tournaments to national and international championships, a variety of opportunities for young athletes as well as social gatherings off the field.
Our association supports these activities by, amongst other things, providing tournament schedules and monitoring adherence to the rules, checking and designating handicaps and caring for the well-being of the animals. Not least, we are proud to have responsibility for the German Polo Championship.
