With everything pink to represent an important cause, i.e. Breast Cancer Awareness, the Pink Polo event was open to families, children, and of course our polo enthusiasts to catch some sporting action.

The polo match opened with a pink sky as they released pink balloons followed by a marching band on the field to kickstart the game. The polo match between two strong teams, with one of them being led by HH Sheikha Maitha bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. It was an intensely captivating yet fun game enjoyed by the audience.

With the extended support of Abu Dhabi Sports Council and other partners, Pink Polo organized a fun-filled day for friends and families to enjoy a prestigious polo match, among many other activities to help raise breast cancer awareness. Such initiatives bring about remarkable changes to our community.

What is a polo event without some style inspiration? We definitely went home with some major style looks to be channeled this season. The event closed with fun surprises for winners of best dressed, best hat and cutest pet styled in pink. Pink Polo Day kept the entertainment going for families, kids, fashionistas, polo fanatics and of course the pink supporters on the weekend.
