The 20th Jodhpur Polo season 2019 will begin at Maharaja Gaj Singh Sports Foundation Polo Ground, Air Force Road, Pabupura, from November 25 to December 30 under the auspices of Jodhpur Polo and Equestrian Institute, Jodhpur.
Jodhpur is one of the important polo center in the world. Polo and Jodhpur have shared a very strong bond since the 19th century. In 1897, Maharaja Pratap Singh took his local polo team, the Jodhpur Lancers to England, where their performance against the home teams made people sit up and take note.
Maharaja Gajsingh Ji, the present head of the erstwhile Jodhpur royal family, carved out a new grass ground in the shadow of the Umaid Bhavan Palace in 1997; he is also the ambassador and founding patron of the Jodhpur Polo and Equestrian Institute.
