Action from Dubai

The Dubai Challenge Cup, Amity Polo Cup & AHPRC League

It was a busy weekend of polo at Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club with The Dubai Challenge Cup, Amity Polo Cup and AHPRC League for March all concluding.

The AHPRC League for March 2019 was the first of the Finals to be played, with Dr. A/Bangash securing the March title with an 8-7 win over Kuwait Polo. The AHPRC League is a week-long 4-6 goal tournament which is played every month at the Club. Also on Saturday, the inaugural Amity Polo Cup 2019 in the UAE was played. The scores were tied at 3-3 in the final chukka, and with just thirty seconds left to play, Brit Tommy Beresford scored to take the win for RAK Bank, 4-3.
Underway at the moment is The Dubai Challenge Cup, the fourth tournament of The Dubai Polo Gold Cup Series, which began on Saturday 16 March with Dubai Wolves narrowly defeating Shansal/PBS 9-8½. Shansal/PBS began the match with a 1½ goal handicap advantage and led from the outset with the scores reading 2-4½ as the half-time bell sounded. However, after half-time, Dubai Wolves mounted a comeback and had managed to flip the lead in their favour and eventually win the match. The Dubai Challenge Cup continued on Monday 18 March, with UAE Polo defeating AM Polo 7-5. Play continues on Thursday with Dubai Wolves vs AM Polo at 3.30pm (local time), followed by Shansal Polo vs UAE Polo at 4.30pm (local time). The Final is scheduled to be played on Friday 29 March.
