It’s the 2,000 year old sport of kings, but Polo Club Luxembourg is bringing the game to a new generation with its “polo training” this weekend.
It is the Year of the Horse (on the Chinese calendar) and the Polo Club Luxembourg (wearing blue in the photo) wants to share its love of the ancient “game of kings”.
The club--which itself turns ten this year and is part of the Fédération Luxembourgeoise de Polo--participates in tournaments in Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands and the UK.
This weekend it is offering a primer course in advance of the coming season, which kicks off in late April.
Saturday’s training will focus on horse riding skills, the rules and strategies of the game, and stick and ball practice. Sunday’s line-up includes videotaped and refereed matches and coach’s de-briefing.
Advanced registration and fees are required. For more information, phone Régis at 621 208 881.
