German Polo Association
Greeting from the President
Dear members, friends, and those of you simply interested,
We are delighted to present our completely revamped website, adapted to conform with the new regulations, just in time for the start of the polo season.
Using a modern design, we present information on all aspects of the German polo sport and its participants: Get to know clubs, teams and players and their successes; learn interesting facts about polo; and not least of all, remain on the ball regarding tournaments and association activities!
I hope you enjoy cantering through our website. Of course, we are open to suggestions, criticism and most importantly, up-to-date information, such as tournament results. Our association and the sport of polo thrive on a lively dialogue and exchange!
In this spirit, on behalf of all active polo players in Germany, I look forward to a fair, sporty, smooth-running and exciting polo season.
Let's play polo!
Yours Oliver Winter
Impressions: Polo in Germany
Called the “Sport of Kings” in the old days, polo has developed into a fast 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, by 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 the German Polo Championship played in Germany.
