Does anyone know anything about polo in Mallorca? Understand that there is a Polo Masters to be held from 26th to 28th September 2008 at El Toro, Calvia but no details available in regard to teams ... Also heard that the new Hilton Hotel opening in Sa Torre, Llucmajor at end of May will be starting up a polo club? Any more news, interested players, please contact me.
Dear DAvid, according to your last comment I would say that Mallorca would be one of the most thrilling destinations, if one could finally be successfull to build up a club. I heard last winter that some Brazilian investors were planning to built two fields in the south of the island, but......
let's stay on the ground!
I have some (weak but absolute charming) contacts to a trotter-breeder and the owner of one of the most exclusive hotel-fincas with a lot of land and an absolute mallorquin standing which should make things easier.
I myself am just trying to change a runined baroque manor house into a polo club so this cost me all efforts and my gold-gooses eggs. If you like, we could talk about that further.
Thanks your last. I heard back from Niki who is in touch with Alex and Thomas and they also feel the concept is interesting. We will move forward with it and see how we go. Did you manage to download the business plan? Maybe it is interesting for you? Your contact for the land may be very important for us all. Can we discuss, and love to hear more about your ruined baroque polo club!

Dear Thomas, very pleased to speak a moment ago. I will resend my e-mail with business plan for proposed club. Do keep in touch and let me know if you have any ideas as to how we might progress our plan to establish a full time club on the island, I'm sure we can work together to further mutual ambitions .. Niki is currently approaching local authorities and then we need to seek some modest funding for the business plan to get things started. Speak again soon. Kind regards, David.
Hello I am based in mallorca and have a polo yard at home(lluchmajor), with 5 polo ponies, I am 24 years and play polo since I was 14, I am really interested in the tournament. My boyfriend is argentinian he is now doing the polo season in England he is also interested, he plays as professional with 3 goals.
Hello David I am based in mallorca. I play polo and have 5 polo ponies in the island. I have a polo pitch at home and last summer played with my argentinian boy friend at a friends house next to es trenc,Lluchmajor, he has a great polo ground!!! I must say my father and I where the first to promote polo in the island 10 years ago. We have organised several tournaments at home sponsored by the Real polo Club of Barcelona. We brought 7 horses from argentina years ago and we have been playing also in mainland. Polo in the island is difficult, first because its an island, so its difficult access, second its not a popular sport and third its expensive. 3 years ago a grerman friend of ours made a verry nice yard at es trenc and we have been playing there. I am open to any polo project, I have knowledge, the contacts and the horses ready to go in the field!!!!!
Hi Iaura, very interested to hear of what you have already established on the island. We will be there in September and should all meet up to see what we can do together to promote the sport on the island and make a good year round club. Kind regards David

Hi Thomas and hi everybody
what`s happen with the tournament in Mallorca?
The website www.polo-mallorca.com is "relaunch soon" and nothing to hear about it.
Here there are so many people interested in Polo in Mallorca, and others pronouncing a new club, who believes?
