From December 18th to 21st, the Royal Salute Maharaja of Jodhpur Golden Jubilee Cup will draw the Royal Salute World Polo Series to a close for 2013. Hosted by His Highness the Maharaja of Jodhpur, Gaj Singh II, in conjunction with the world’s leading luxury Scotch whisky Royal Salute, the tournament will take place over four days in the run up to Christmas in the foothills of the Umaid Bhawan Palace. Royal Salute is title sponsor of this event for the fourth time.

The event will see the international polo community come together to celebrate polo in India. In between polo games, VIPs will get the opportunity to explore the ‘Blue City’ and soak up the culture of Rajasthan with a trip into the desert, take in a Marwari Horse Show, as well as taking part in other celebrations which will culminate in the exclusive Royal Salute Golden Jubilee Ball. Among the guests will be Torquhil Ian Campbell, the 13th Duke of Argyll as well as the English professional polo player and Royal Salute World Polo Ambassador Malcolm Borwick.

Malcolm Borwick: “As an international polo player, you get to play in some pretty special places, but the foothills of the Umaid Bhawan palace is really spectacular. India makes for an incredible cross-cultural stage to showcase polo, immersed in magnificent style with majestic company over the course of four days. I am very much looking forward to taking it all in alongside an exciting three-day 12-goal tournament.”

The tournament is the final fixture in the Royal Salute World Polo Series for 2013, showcasing the brand’s commitment to the most prestigious international polo events across the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe and the Middle East. The Royal Salute World Polo Series will continue in January 2014 with The Royal Salute Nations Cup in Dubai.
