"The Ralph Lauren International Ladies Polo Tournament represents a significant achievement for both the UAE and for women across the region" said Sheikha Maitha, "polo has long been associated as being a tough game, however, the first ever ladies polo tournament allows women to cement their footprints in this sport.
