19 01 2009
Polo, which has always enjoyed a reputation as one of the world's most glamorous sports, has bought some of its glitz to the world's most glamorous resort, with the inaugural Desert Palm Nations Cup in Dubai.
The tournament featured the talent of the world's leading players, including Adolfo Cambiaso, the Argentinean world number one and Nick Roldan, the best player in the US.
Mr Cambiaso said that his performance on the pitch would be the first of many in the United Arab Emirates and praised the tournament organisers.
He added: "I very much appreciate the enthusiasm and warm welcome I've received from the supporters here at Desert Palm and the world class facilities on offer at the resort."
Dubai, a popular beach holiday destination, offers a warm welcome to all comers and has glitz and glamour galore even for those who have little interest in polo.
Recently Kylie Minogue, Robert De Niro and Lindsay Lohan were spotted in the Emirate, attending the opening party of the Atlantis Hotel.
