About the club
Set back in the heights of the lush backcountry of the Côte d’Azur, the Domaine Pijaubert is a 75-acre estate surrounded by white oak and cork trees. Beyond the fields and olive groves is a honey-colored stone 18th-century mas, a farmhouse built on Roman ruins. Call it a postcard perfect vision of Provence, with a panoramic vista of distant blue grey peaks and the neighbouring hilltop villages. In 2001, the polo-loving Pike family acquired this lovely sprawling property and went on to launch a unique concept: the Riviera Polo Club, headed by passionate player, Gary Pike, which now offers highly personalized training.
Highlights of the Riviera Polo Club’s special events include a series of ‘Champagne & Chukkas Tournaments, beginning in June. In September, the season ends with a VIP lunch at the five-star Terre Blanche Hotel Golf & Spa, followed by the exhilarating Riviera Polo Cup tournament, with sponsors that include Douqué Capital Partners, Blohm + Voss, Flag (FLAG4RIVIERA). Add to that Scapa Sports, Nice, who bring to these events fun fashion shows, a pop-up boutique and the works of internationally-known artists.

Pijaubert Polo School
The Riviera Polo Club is not just a place to watch, discover and play polo. It is also a place to learn. Teaming up with the Pijaubert Polo School, run by Jamie & Alexia Pike, the club offers polo initiations for curious polo enthusiasts and also polo & riding lessons for confirmed players looking to improve their game. One can start playing polo at any age with any level of riding experience. The Pijaubert Polo School, which houses Argentine criollo ponies and a hitting cage with a wooden horse, also hosts bi-annual tournaments, high-profile events and exciting polo demonstrations.
For those seeking relaxation away from the traffic snarls of the coast, the club has developed a custom-designed Polo Holiday that accommodates guests in private apartments on the premises. Whether it’s poolside cocktails, family-style barbecues at the main house or an Argentine asado on the field, the mood is relaxed and convivial. Along with the opportunity to improve polo skills, students can enjoy horseback-riding excursions on a trail through the protected natural reserve of Fondurane, which gradually winds down to the clear blue waters of the lake Saint-Cassien. They can also take full advantage of the swimming pool, the nearby outdoor Provencal markets and top-notch country-style restaurants, only a short drive away.
The Riviera Polo Club is located in the backcountry of the Côte d’Azur.
