On 13 July 2013, the Engel & Völkers Polo Cup took place on Majorca for the fifth time. As in previous years, the venue was the impressive private estate owned by Christian Völkers, with spectacular views overlooking the Tramuntana Mountains and the sea. The tournament is evolving more and more into an established social event on the sunshine isle. This time around, more than 600 guests responded to Christian Völkers’ invitation – including employees and friends, as well as numerous famous names including singer Vicky Leandros, the actors Christian Ulmen and Collien Ulmen-Fernandes, publisher Henrik teNeues and Christian Prinz and Astrid Prinzessin zu Stolberg. The enthusiasm from the sidelines for the dynamic Argentinean polo ponies and their artistic riders, who galloped past at up to 60 kilometres an hour, was absolute palpable.
The game of polo – in addition to dynamism and precision, also all about the perfect interplay and humans and animals – has been a great personal passion of Christian Völkers for many years. At the same time, this exclusive sport has also developed into an exciting field of play from an entrepreneurial perspective. Not least because the community of polo enthusiasts is characterised by discerning standards when it comes to products and services. A standard that Engel & Völkers wishes to rise to as a global broker of prestigious properties and yachts in the premium segment – with the same level of passion as for the sport itself.
