The Al Habtoor Royal Windsor Cup provides passion, power and pageantry. The impressive trophy, historically presented by HM The Queen, is the leading 15-goal tournament in the country and has been played at Smith's Lawn since 1955 - the Club's inaugural year. For amost six decades it has attracted the leading players of the sport and as this tournament invariably features more than 25 teams, even qualifying is an achievement. In fact, many players consider winning the Royal Windsor as the pinnacle of their career due to the strength of the competition.

The subsidiary match to this tournament is the Mountbatten Cup, while teams comprising of Guards members who do not qualify for the main quarter-finals can play for the Prince Philip Cup. 

If that wasn't enough the day concludes with a wonderful carriage driving display. An impressive procession of carrriages, organised by the British Driving Society, drives onto the Club's number one ground to be inspected by HM The Queen and HRH Prince Philip. 

The Al Habtoor Royal Windsor Cup Tournament is sponsored by the Al Habtoor Group, which is headed by Khalaf Al Habtoor. He left his job with a local construction firm in 1970 and began his own company, Al Habtoor Engineering Ltd, the foundation of today's Al Habtoor Group. The Al Habtoor Group has since grown within the UAE and is now internationally recognised through its construction, hotels, real-estate, education, automobile distribution and leasing and publishing businesses. It is one of the UAE's most successful and respected diversified business corporations, employing more than 40,000 people.
