INTERNATIONAL POLO COMMUNITY CELEBRATE AN END TO THE YEAR IN ULTIMATE STYLE
Next week in India, the majestic Royal Salute Maharaja of Jodhpur Golden Jubilee Cup will draw the Royal Salute World Polo Series to a close for 2013. Hosted by His Highness the Maharaja of Jodhpur, Gaj Singh II, in conjunction with the world’s leading luxury Scotch whisky Royal Salute, the tournament will take place over four days in the run up to Christmas from 19th – 22nd December in the exquisite foothills of the Umaid Bhawan Palace.
Royal Salute, is celebrating its fourth year as title sponsor of this iconic event. The heritage and timeless appeal of polo, the power, passion, integrity and honour of the players are values which are also inherent to Royal Salute whisky, making it the perfect sponsorship blend.
German model and photographer Johannes Huebl will be in attendance to use his passion for photography to unveil the skill and craftsmanship behind the game of polo, as well as the understated elegance off the field. Johannes will showcase these images with his 150,000 followers on Instagram, which can be followed using #Salutethegame. Other guests of honour include Torquhil Ian Campbell the 13th Duke of Argyll and English professional polo player, and Royal Salute World Polo Ambassador Malcolm Borwick, who will also be on hand to immerse guests in the sport taking a polo clinic, creating and sharing his passion for the game.
Malcolm Borwick, England professional polo player and Royal Salute World Polo Ambassador commented:
“As an international polo player, you get to play in some pretty special places, but the foothills of the Umaid Bhawan palace is really spectacular. India makes for an incredible cross-cultural stage to showcase polo, immersed in magnificent style with majestic company over the course of four days. I am very much looking forward to taking it all in alongside an exciting three-day 12-goal tournament.”
The event will see the international polo community come together to celebrate polo in India. In between polo games, VIPs will get the opportunity to explore the ‘Blue City’ and soak up the culture of Rajasthan with a trip into the desert, take in a Marwari Horse Show, as well as taking part in other elegant celebrations which will culminate in the exclusive Royal Salute Golden Jubilee Ball.
The tournament is the final fixture in the Royal Salute World Polo Series for 2013, showcasing the brand’s commitment to the most prestigious international polo eventsLive across the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe and the Middle East.
