1965 the polo pitch was converted to an altitude training centre for athletes competing in the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City. For the time being, this put an end to polo in St. Moritz.

In the early 60s a major international polo tournament was held in St. Moritz every summer, involving teams from Argentina, Italy, the USA and England. The event attracted already 3,000 to 4,000 spectators each year, from the Engadin and well beyond. The only player from the Engadin at this time – in fact from the whole of Switzerland – was Christian Mathis.

After the British officers had left it took another half-century till polo was played again in St. Moritz. Dr. P. R. Berry, Andrea Badrutt, Peter Kaspar and Christian Mathis founded the St. Moritz Polo Club in 1959, with Dr. Berry as its chairman.
The gentleman in the front: Dr. P. R. Berry.
On the occasion of the upcoming 30th anniversary of the St. Moritz Polo World Cup on Snow next January, we’re taking the opportunity to look back at the history of polo in St. Moritz which started in 1899, when some British cavalry officers had played polo as part of their military training and as a leisure activity during summertime. This makes St. Moritz one of the cradles of polo in continental Europe.
