The 7th International German Beach Polo Championship 2023 in the Baltic Sea resort of Sellin offered three thrilling days of beach polo. The 14th edition of the Beach Polo Tournament and the seventh official German Beach Polo Championship took place from 29th September to 1st October 2023.

Eight polo teams with 75 polo horses attended this German Beach Polo Championship of the German Polo Association e.V. and demonstrated exciting chukkas over three days under optimal autumn weather conditions on the golden beach of the Baltic Sea in Sellin.

The traditional kick-off began on Thursday afternoon with the Polo Parade through the Baltic Sea resort, accompanied by the „Ostseefanfaren“ and the Sellin Fire Brigade. In the evening, Deputy Mayor Andreas Käske and Tourism Manager Conrad Bergmann invited players to a reception in the Pier Restaurant.

The games were officially opened by Deputy Mayor Andreas Käske on Friday at 1:00 pm. For guests and visitors, admission was free, except for the VIP area. The VIP Lounge Tent also had a free area. Bar 24 took over catering in the open area. In the VIP area, top chefs from Berlin treated guests to culinary delights. More than 18,000 visitors watched the German Beach Polo Championship games over the three days.

All games were expertly moderated by „the Voice of Polo“, Jan Erik Franck.

Traditionally, the Oktoberfest took place in the VIP tent on Saturday evening.


The team BREUER / Dohrmann Fashion AG, with players Daniel Deistler and Patrick Maleitzke, managed to prevail in a dramatic final game against Team ADLER, with players Sophie Schmidt and Thomas Winter. Therefore, the reigning and new German Beach Polo Champions are Team Daniel Deistler and Patrick Maleitzke (who has won all the German Beach Polo Championships so far).

Parliamentary State Secretary Heiko Miraß, Niffy Winter (representing the President of the German Polo Association e.V., Oliver Winter), and Deputy Mayor Andreas Käske presented the medals for the German Beach Polo Champions 2023.

Sophie Schmidt and Arllet Heinemann were named MVPs. The Best Playing Pony comes from Patrick Maleitzke‘s stock.

The state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania supported this German Beach Polo Championship with €15,000 from the fund for eastern Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.
