A GRAND REVIVAL
Despite his many social, cultural and business commitments, His Highness Maharaja Gajsingh II has always taken a keen interest in equestrian sports and nurtured an ambition to re-establish Jodhpur as a premier canter of equitation and polo.
In pursuance of this goal in 1993 he re-launched the Jodhpur team, which has since made its mark on the Indian polo circuit.
The heir apparent, Yuvraj Shivraj Singh a keen player himself and having played all across the globe: England, Europe, Australia, Brazil, South Africa, Kenya, Egypt, Switzerland and Singapore, to name a few; is the force behind the Jodhpur Team.
In March, 2000 the new grass polo ground in Jodhpur, created and maintained by the Maharaja Gaj Singh Sports Foundation hosted two Jodhpur teams, a team from Delhi, the Kashmir team and a team from Kenya. It was the first serious polo in Jodhpur in nearly half a century and it was a great event. The following year in 2001, there were five (5) teams participating and playing the highest order of the game.
