Discover the training center of the Polo Club du Domaine de Chantilly…
In 1995, a group of friends created the Polo Club du Domaine de Chantilly in the village of Apremont. Land and grassland formerly used for Polo since they had already been chosen by Baron Robert de Rothschild who, in 1920, had brought together the World Polo leagues there. Since 1995, each year has seen an increase in the number and quality of horses.
In 2004, the club takes up the challenge of organizing the World Polo Championship. All the matches took place on the 9 Polo fields of the Ferme d'Apremont. A cavalier and relaxed spirit continues to flourish in this countryside near Paris. The level of polo continues to improve, thanks to the greatest players in the world who come there regularly, attracted by the competitions.
The matches, even the most important ones, are free to access. The game and the "good-natured" atmosphere seduce a large audience!

A major championship: The French Open
The Open is the most coveted international title. Each country, under the aegis of its federation, only organizes one per year.

McDonough… Names that make people dream in Argentina and on the rest of the polo planet, but which are above all an indication of the sporting quality of this French Open which in twenty years has received teams from Switzerland, Belgium, Argentina, from Germany, Austria, England, Italy, the United States, Spain, the Netherlands, and of course France.
The Women's Open, created in 2011, responds to a new phenomenon in polo: the rise of female players in this sport. Consequently, even if the doors are open to them in the mixed Open (three women won in 2001 and 2011 and two others were ﬁnalists), faced with the increase in the number of players, an Open
feminine was needed!
