Dubai, UAE, November 2, 2017: Polo enthusiasts will once again be treated to the very best sporting action that the Ghantoot Racing & Polo Club has to offer when the UAE's only Royal Polo Club, kicks of what promises to be another exciting season with the popular Pink Polo Day on November 3.

Now in its eighth year, the highlight of the Pink Polo event will be an exhibition match between an all women's Beverly Hills Polo team led by Shaikha Maitha Bint Mohammed Al Maktoum, against the Ghantoot Goes Pink men's team of Nasser Al Shamsi, Abdullah Ben Dasmal, Fahad Al Qubaisi and Ahmed BuQdain.
Other members of the women's team include HRH Princess Azemah, daughter of HM King of Brueni, Germany's Sandra Schneider, a Dubai-based PR guru and Marianele Gastagnola, a pro player, instructor and horse trainer from the famous polo town of Canuelas, Buenos Aires in Argentina.

Worldwide campaigns and events have helped raise awareness of important cancer initiatives and the Ghantoot Racing & Polo Club are committed to bringing the community together around such an important health issue.

“We are delighted to be involved in such an important health topic as breast cancer, which is the leading cause of cancer deaths in women worldwide,” said HE Saeed Bin Hoofan Al Mansouri, Ghantoot Racing & Polo Club, Vice Chairman.

“I believe that events like this help create greater awareness and also play an important role in the screening and prevention process overall.
“We invite all polo enthusiasts, families and friends interested in improving the general quality of people's lives to attend our Pink Polo Day with the endless support of Abu Dhabi Sports Council, Ghantoot Racing & Polo Club Governing Partner.”

Most people in the workplace or sports field have been touched in same way by breast cancer and Dr Varun Katyalm Regional Director, Medeor 24x7 Hospital said that they will be offering free examinations and advice at Ghantoot.

'At Pink Polo 2017, Medeor 24x7 Hospital will be raising breast cancer screening and awareness,” he said.

“Guests to the Pink Clinic will get a chance to talk to medical experts, learn about self-examination and the importance of mammograms, as well as undergo free screenings at the mobile mammography unit.

The multi-specialty family hospital has been providing free mammograms throughout October in line with the Department of Health's strategy. The campaign has benefited over 300 women via early detection and prevention efforts and hopes to impact many more.'

In a welcome address, Nehme Imad Darwiche, CEO of Jannah Hotels and Resorts invited Her Highness Sheikha Aisha bint Rashid Al Mualla, the official sponsors and guests to the event.

“The keystone to success is a strong collaboration and we are so proud to be part of the upcoming season with the esteemed Ghantoot Racing & Polo Club,” he said.

“It is our pleasure to support the journey of one of the most successful and fastest growing sports institution of the UAE. The vision of Ghantoot Racing and Polo Club is a strong and inspiring one and we hope to assist the progress of the institution within the UAE and the GCC.

“We hope this partnership will open more doors of opportunities for both entities and we look forward to more joint ventures in the years to come between Jannah and Ghantoot.”

Helal Hanei Omar, Vice President, Premier Motors, the official dealer for Maserati cars in Abu Dhabi commented: “It is a pleasure to support the Ghantoot Racing and Polo Club for the second consecutive year.

“Creating awareness about breast cancer is vital to ensuring early detection and treatment of this disease, which according to some experts, can lead to a survival rate of 98 per cent.

“The Pink Polo event is a culmination of a month long series of awareness drives in various colleges across Abu Dhabi and Dubai, and will definitely help to draw attention to this cause.”

Pink Polo Day is not just about health screenings and community awareness, it is an all-in-all fun day out for the family and friends
