Playing Croquet at the Julius Baer Polo Cup in Dubai

Whilst at the Julius Baer Polo Cup at the St. Regis Polo in Dubai, I showed my friends how to play the traditional English game of Croquet. Croquet in Dubai is not a common thing to find but the Polo club is the best spot to play as they have space and extra grass.

It seems I’m not such an expert, as my friends beat me to the final post but it was great fun nonetheless. The whole day was great fun watching the polo matches whilst enjoying the hospitality the The St. Regis Polo Club put on. The Julius Baer Polo Cup is one of the biggest polo events in the Dubai calendar and is also one of the best social events. People enjoy getting dressed up though it’s not quite as formal as the Horse Races.

I had a quick chat with Mohammed Habtoor who owns and runs the club and also plays for the Habtoor Polo team. The interview is in the long version of the video which is on Wavo on-demand service.
