Under the patronage of HH Sheikh Falah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Ghantoot Racing & Polo Club launches the 9th edition of Pink Polo Initiative 2018

Starting the season with the most awaited polo event that took place at Ghantoot Racing & Polo Club on 2nd November 2018. With everything pink to represent an important cause i.e. Breast Cancer Awareness, the Pink Polo event was open to families, children and of course our polo enthusiasts to catch some sporting action.


The polo match opened with a pink sky as they released pink balloons followed by a marching band in the field to kickstart the game. The polo match between two strong teams with one of them being led by HH Sheikha Maitha bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. It was an intensely captivating yet fun game enjoyed by the audience.

Maintaining a family-friendly environment, there were open areas for kids’ entertainment

And food. Most importantly, there were free health checkups and mammogram vouchers organized by the health partners like The Pink Caravan, Beverly Hills medical clinic & Al Rahba Hospital.

There have been various initiatives to support health topics and this event is undoubtedly a clear reflection of Ghantoot Racing & Polo Club’s commitment towards the cause and most importantly bringing the community together to be a part of such initiatives.

This is the third year; Premiere Motors Maserati are proud sponsors of the event and have been very invested in the opportunity to align their brand to an important cause that deserves support and attention in the region. With the extended support of Abu Dhabi Sports Council and other partners, Pink Polo organized a fun-filled day for friends and families to enjoy a prestigious polo match amongst many other activities to help raise breast cancer awareness. Such initiatives bring about remarkable changes to our community.


What is a polo event without some style inspiration? We definitely went home with some major style looks to be channeled this season. The event was closed with fun surprises for winners of best dressed, best hat and cutest pet styled in pink. Pink Polo day kept the entertainment going for families, kids, fashionista, polo fanatics and of course the pink supporters on the weekend. We would love to see more from #PinkPolo initiative in the coming years to highlight worthy causes in the region.
