Thailand Polo Association

The Polo Association was founded by Mr Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha in August 1998, and was given national status as the Thailand Polo association in January 2004. Mr Vichai has long been involved in the sport and intends to popularize Polo within Thailand and to develop the skills of players in the country in order to compete successfully internationally with the leading polo playing nations.

Since its foundation, the Thailand Polo Association has supported and organised tournaments in Thailand, and has sent local players to international competitions.

The major national tournaments include Thailand Polo King’s Cup, a competition where teams compete for a trophy bearing the name of Thailand’s monarch, His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulayadej. This is an internationally respected event with teams attending from Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei, Philippines and even as far as afield as Australia and Dubai.
