The Jaipur Polo and Riding Club is a polo resort facility which was founded by Colonel K.S. Garcha, who is now a patron, but was one of India’s foremost polo players, as well as the former coach of the Indian National Polo Team. Colonel Garcha captained the Indian Polo Team on several occasions back in the day and was awarded the coveted Arjuna Award, India’s highest accolade for outstanding sportsmen. Colonel Garcha has also played and represented India internationally from the 70’s to the 90’s. He has won the ‘Indian Open National Championship’ (20 goals) for a record of 13 times – the oldest and most coveted prize in Indian Polo – a trophy that’s over 100 years old! He has traveled extensively and played in almost 25 countries across the world.
