It will also host the most important polo tournaments in the Middle East such as the Silver Cup, Gold Cup and the famous British Polo Day. These tournaments are part of the World Polo Tour which has been established in 2010 and went from a 10 handicap to a high goal tournament which 18 handicap which attracted the best polo players and the attention of polo fanatics around the world.
