Polo at Deauville
In 1892, polo conquered Deauville as confirmed by the creation of the “Polo de Deauville” sport association. In 1907 the club was founded by the Baron Robert de Rothschild, the captain Joubert and the Duke of Gramont. At the time the tracks were already at the heart of the “La Touques” racecourse. When the Coupe d’Or was introduced by François André in 1950, the Polo of Deauville was the only French tournament and one of the three major European tournaments hosting the major polo players of the last sixty years. Since Cibao La Pampa won the First Edition in 1951, most polo leaders, the famous 10-goal handicap players, have been playing polo on the back of their horses in the La Touques racecourse.
Matches are organized from the beginning to the end of August, for 20 to 25 days. The final match is always organized after the horse race of the Grand Prix of Deauville, on the last weekend of August. All matches are commented and explained, often with much humour.
