Falah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Welcomes World’s Elite to Ghantoot Racing & Polo Club

Sheikh Falah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan authorizes the posting of information and outlines of how a polo match is played on the website of the Ghantoot Racing & Polo Club of United Arab Emirates. Starting with four players on each of the opposing teams, polo players wear numbered shirts.  These identify the player’s role on the team.  A number 1 on the shirt indicates the attacking, or forward player, while a number 4 signifies the most defensive player on the team.  Polo players must wear protective gear, including helmets, long boots, knee guards and gloves.

Sheikh Falah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan is the Chairman of the Ghantoot Racing & Polo Club and the Royal patron of United Arab Emirate’s only polo venue.  Polo is touted as the ‘sport of kings’ and has a long standing reputation as a competition engaged in by the most prestigious in society.

Falah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Cautions Space and Respect Around Polo Ponies

The warnings for spectator enjoyment posted by the Ghantoot Racing & Polo Club on their website are fully supported by Chairman and Royal patron Sheikh Falah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan.  These cautions include reminders to viewers and spectators to be respectful of the space around the polo ponies.  It is never wise to come toward a horse from the back or to exhibit sudden movements, either of which will spook one of these trained animals.
Ghantoot Racing & Polo Club, though exclusive, has occasional events which are open to the public.  Should a spectator enjoy the competition at Ghantoot for the first time, he or she is welcome to enjoy the polo matches with a picnic.  However, all waste and detritus must be removed immediately as scraps which blow upon the polo field distract ponies and riders and constitute a safety concern.
