The Cawnpore Cup – Where this Mediterranean gem meets charitable sportsmanship
Time is of the essence… So, in case you were wondering what life in Malta looks like at this time of year, we’re giving you a glimpse into one of the sublime experiences that this Mediterranean gem has to offer. Our luxury lifestyle service – which is head quartered in Malta – is tailored to our clients’ individual desires, so that we can cater their experience to meet the most exquisite, high-end standards.
The Gentleman’s Sport
The Cawnpore Cup, sponsored by celebrated jewellery and watch purveyor Edwards Lowell, is Malta’s most prestigious polo event. It is among the top social events in the annual calendar, and is held at the historic Malta Polo Club, in Marsa. Once a year, the Club welcomes a mixture of esteemed local and international guests to experience the most exciting final match of the polo season.
Malta’s long-standing polo tradition dates back to around 1869, when the British Cavalry regiment and Royal Navy’s ponies’ hooves first met the Maltese soil. Although Malta’s Polo Club is the oldest remaining club in Europe, and second-oldest in the world, its grounds provide the quintessential ambience for their reputable spectators.
A Charitable Event
Every year, the President of Malta, Her Excellency Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, presents the Cawnpore Cup to the winning team, in front of a respectable crowd. This year, to commemorate the 150 anniversary of this event, HE Coleiro Preca, gifted the club with an engraved, silver platter. In the true spirit of the charitable Maltese lifestyle, the proceeds from this event are also gifted to the Malta Community Chest Fund.
When a crowd gathers to witness such a spectacular event take place in the sunshine – enjoying the benevolent camaraderie of Malta’s top-players over free-flowing champagne and nibbles. At this year’s Cup, Team Veuve Clicquot came in first, receiving a solid silver plaque, followed by the honourable team RE/MAX, who were gifted Veuve Clicquot champagne and Cavessons London wallets.
Experience The Best of The Maltese Islands
Malta’s history tells tales of riches and delights, as it was the most coveted island in the Mediterranean for centuries. Today, the Islands have only the best experiences to offer – from the ever-so-elegant and aristocratic streets of the capital city, to the glorious, crystal-clear waters surrounding them. The choice that we have to offer to our VIP clients is unbeatable.
Of course, this is just one of the many events that we enjoy being part of across the world’s calendar of luxury activities. So, whether you would like to be front row for the next Cawnpore Cup, or would like tickets to any of the globe’s most glamorous events, we can get you there.
