Hamburg, 20 October 2015. The Engel & Völkers + Land Rover Polo School held its second Youth Camp on Majorca from 16 to 18 October 2015. Eight young and aspiring polo students trained over two days with Thomas Winter, one of Germany’s top polo players, on Christian Völkers’ estate in the southwest of Majorca. Three of the eight students were the winners of the 9th FIP Polo Youth Camp 2015, which took place in May at the Hamburg Polo Club. Their prize, endowed by the Engel & Völkers + Land Rover Polo School, was a place at the Youth Camp on Majorca.
“We’re delighted to have once again given up-and-coming players the chance to take part in a two-day Youth Camp on Majorca this year. This event is specifically aimed at promoting fresh young talent, enabling them to learn the game of polo in a systematic way and make real progress early on,” said Christian Völkers, Co-CEO of Engel & Völkers AG and Founder of the Engel & Völkers + Land Rover Polo School. The training program at the Youth Camp on Majorca includes a general introduction to the game of polo, practicing of riding and passing techniques, more detailed instruction of game strategies, and a final match.
