Engel & Völkers has been in existence since 1977, providing you with over 40 years of real estate expertise, exclusive service and passionate engagement! As the culmination of our multi-part series about our diverse business areas, namely Residential, Commercial, Yachting and Aviation, let us introduce you to perhaps our most extraordinary business segment: the Engel & Völkers + Land Rover Polo School!
After being around for more than two and a half thousand years, the sport of polo can look back on a remarkable history. Then as now, victory requires dynamic engagement and teamwork. This makes the game comparable to the real estate business, which also requires personal commitment and the right team by your side for success. Thus, it is not really surprising that Christian Völkers, the founder and CEO of Engel & Völkers, has himself been practising the sport of polo for many years. His fascination for the game gave rise to the Engel & Völkers + Land Rover Polo School, which was founded in cooperation with the long-standing automobile manufacturer in 2014. At the polo school, both newcomers and experienced players can partake in the demanding sport and learn the basics or improve their handicap in five different courses.
Anyone interested in doing more than merely observing the agility, tempo and techniques of the sport from the sidelines has the possibility to actively participate at the one of the five international Engel & Völkers + Land Rover polo schools. Three of them are located in Germany. Our polo school courses are offered in Hamburg, Munich and Frankfurt am Main. Aspern Estate, the home of the polo school near Hamburg, has been owned by Christopher Kirsch, one of Germany’s top national polo players, since 2005.
First-class polo lessons are also available in the proximity of Frankfurt: The polo field of Engel & Völkers and Land Rover is located a mere 10-minute drive from Frankfurt city. The polo school near the Bavarian capital is especially picturesque: The playing field of our polo school in Munich is located between Tegernsee and Holzkirchen.
Two more Engel & Völkers and Land Rover polo schools are located outside of Germany. One of them is in Port dés Canonge, Majorca, on the historic estate of Son Coll. This location is also known for the regular polo tournaments organised by company founder Christian Völkers for friends and business partners.
And then, of course, we also have a school in Argentina, where polo is one of the most popular team sports around. Accordingly, you can look forward to instructive and particularly demanding lessons against a South American backdrop.
Whether you prefer engaging in polo in the North German Hanseatic city or in exotic South America: At the Engel & Völkers + Land Rover Polo School you will be trained to become a tournament-ready polo player in five multi-day courses or improve your handicap as a professional. No riding experience or basic knowledge is required for the beginner’s courses. Private lessons are also available on request.
Whether polo school, high-quality residential and commercial real estate, yachting or aviation: Our areas of operation are as diverse as the demands of our clients. What they all have in common is our uncompromising passion for fulfilling these. We hope you will continue to accompany us on this journey.
