Dubai, UAE: The Julius Baer team won a thrilling 6-3 match over Maradiva team to secure the inaugural Julius Baer Beach Polo Cup, Dubai, 2013 at Mina A'Salam yesterday.

The final was watched by a sell-out audience on the beautiful stretch of beach transformed into a beach polo field by mamemo productions. With the sun quickly setting on a stunning weekend of action, the pulsating grand finals was a fitting finale to Dubai's exciting sporting event.

Julius Baer team captain and patron, Rashid Al Habtoor was awarded the Julius Baer Beach Polo Cup Dubai 2013 at the official prize giving ceremony.

Sam Katiela, ‘Beach Polo Cup' Creator & Founder as well as mamemo productions' Managing & Creative Director, said: “The final was a wonderful way to complete a memorable weekend for the return of the ‘Beach Polo Cup' to the heart of Dubai. We are so proud of how the event went and we hope Dubai thoroughly enjoyed themselves at what was ‘something a little different' for the events scene here.”

He added, “We could not have asked for a more entertaining final and along with the beach polo there was so much more for people to experience. Corporate hospitality was abuzz with activity throughout the weekend.”

Julius Baer Beach Polo Cup, Dubai, 2013 was played on a pitch a third smaller than a regular polo field, which meant the spectators were closer to the action. Each team had three players (Reduced from the usual four).

It was a unique take on the traditions of polo and proved to be a winning formula for spectators who flocked to the stunning venue.

A charity auction was held prior to the closing ceremony, showcasing modeled replicas of white horses which were built during the 2 day event and painted beautifully by attending children. All four horses were sold at the total price of AED 130,000. In addition, the Julius Baer management pledged a cheque of AED 50,000 bringing the total to AED180,000. All proceeds were donated to the Noor Dubai Foundation.

The successful realization of the Julius Baer Beach Polo Cup Dubai 2013 could not have been possible without the support and involvement of its sponsors for the four competing teams, Julius Baer Group, Aston Martin, Le Clos and Maradiva, as well as all the event partners involved.
