Polo gala 2018

It was a big pleasure to photograph the annual gala of Association Polo des Grandes Écoles & Universités. The outstanding venue of this year was the Cercle National des Armées. It’s a military building in the city center of the 8th arrondissement of Paris. Last year, the location was École Militair, next to the Eiffeltower {watch the photos here of last year}.

This gala of 2018 was, like the French call it, magnifique. With 250 guests, the ballroom was decorated by beautiful dresses, champagne and sparkling conversations. As the sun was getting down, the crystal chandeliers made the evening shining.

 

House of Eléonore’s Polo weekend 2017

THE polo event of the year was there for House of Eléonore. This year they had their own team sponsored. I’ve been visiting and playing polo in the last year, and it felt great to see it again this weekend. It’s a very unique sport and it always feels like a relaxing day, drinking a wine or champagne, and enjoying the great weather with your family and friends.

Did you know that:

  • The Netherlands has only 60 active polo players.
  • Every player needs, at least, 4 horses per match (because the match exist of 4 parts).
  • Every polo player has a handicap that ranges from -2 till 10 (10 is the best)
  • The Netherlands has only 4 clubs.
  • Every body can play polo, if you have a horse or not! Just call Polo Club Midden Nederland and you can organize a training yourself.
