The patrons played alongside an equally impressive list of professionals, including a member of the Argentine national team. Although the tournament's host, Ali Albwardy did not play, his family was represented through his talented son Tariq. He was a member of the winning team in 2011.
Every match was played at Ali Albwardy's beautiful Desert Palm estate, home to one of Dubai's premier boutique retreats, Desert Palm by Per AQUUM. Not only does this impressive retreat boast some fine polo grounds, but also offers the renowned LIME Spa, the Red Bar and two award winning restaurants, Rare and Epicure.
With more than 400-invitation only guests enjoying some great polo and sumptuous hospitality courtesy of the team at Desert Palm Resort, this year’s event really was one to remember.
