in german polo.
With the foundation of the “Hamburger Polo Club” in 1898, Germany can claim to be home to the oldest polo club in Europe. When the DPV was founded in 1972 polo in Germany not only received an official organisational structure but also saw an increase in professionalization. Since 1978 we have organised annual German Polo Championships in the Low Goal, Medium Goal and High Goal classes and we are delighted to report that skill levels continue to rise. We also see a continued rise in the number of members, handicaps and tournaments. A special highlight every year is our participation in the European Championships.
