When Passion meets Business. This year the traditional “Engel & Völkers Polo Cup” is taking place at Mr. Völkers’ private finca estate “Son Coll” in Port d’es Canonge on Majorca for the sixth time. It has established itself as a key date in the high society calendar of events on the sunshine isle. The estate itself forms a relaxing contrast to the dynamic power of the polo matches. This mix is typical for the Polo Cup and gives the event a unique character of its own.
For Mr. Völkers polo is a central aspect when it comes to a work-life balance, and it is inextricably linked with the Engel & Völkers brand. In both the property business and the game of polo, team spirit, dynamism and effective performance are all crucial elements. Passion and strategy are required for success – in polo and in business.
Polo is a game for technical thinkers, tactical strategists and fighters. The sport looks back on a long tradition, with origins in Persia. It later emerged as the “Sport of Kings” in countries such as Argentina, England and in Germany too. The special thing about polo is the close relationship between the horse and the rider. Together they form a strong and dynamic team that has to act quickly and precisely at all times. This is what polo is all about.
Nowadays, more and more polo fans want to sit in the saddle and actively feel the thrill of this dynamic sport for themselves rather than just experience the fascinating mix of tempo, skill and team spirit from the edge of the field. Polo lessons with professional instruction have become very popular, and the Engel & Völkers Polo School also trains both beginners and advanced players in the sport.
