Women Elite
Dialogue with Paris Luo
BT 201811 Cover 01Paris是一位马球爱好者,她的梦想是在中国推广女子马球。作为马球精英教育的先驱,她创立了1003 Polo,并主持建立1003环亚女子马球学校。她的故事发生在天津郊区,特别是高级都市马球俱乐部,被认为是中国最大的马球场所。有经济条件的父母现在越来越愿意让他们的孩子参与马球和其他马术运动。

2018年10月7日,我们在天津环亚国际马球会成功举办的1003 Rose Polo Cup (1003女子马球玫瑰杯)中遇到了 Paris Luo。目睹国际精英女性马球手如何呈现了一场世界级马球比赛,真是一场视觉盛宴。这项运动通常与皇室和权力相关,马球比赛结合艺术与珠宝,为那些喜爱速度和运动的激情的观众带来极具观赏性质的全新体验。Paris和她的1003马球队自然地成为重新介绍精英女性时尚生活方式的大使。

本次赛事由天津环亚国际马球会与1003 Polo学校共同创办,旨在打造专业女子马球IP锦标赛,搭建中国和世界女子马球文化的桥梁,推广中国女子马球文化。通过女子马球IP锦标赛吸引更多的新精英女性参与到这项运动中来。

1003 Rose Polo Cup女子马球玫瑰杯主打精英女性生活方式场景,并融入了艺术与音乐元素,为观众打造了不一样的感官体验。每场赛事都吸引了来自世界各地的精英女子、女家族企业接班人、新锐艺术家和各行各业的领袖人物。此次赛事在国际马球届起到了连接作用,并引领着在中国培育马球快速发展景象的潮流。

1003马球学校是一个推广马球运动的生活方式以及体现女性赋权的平台。在它的掌舵下,学校希望有更多的中国女性马球运动员参加世界各地的锦标赛。保持女子马球既显着又吸引人的是球员如何能够在球场上展现力量,同时又保留场上优雅和场外的美丽之间达到微妙的平衡。

于10月6日星期六举行的锦标赛晚宴集浮华,魅力和力量的特色为一体,这在宴会厅客人中非常明显。这是一种很恰当的方式来拥护精英女性生活方式,以及正式推出1003环亚女子马球学校和1003 Rose Polo Cup (1003女子马球玫瑰杯)。

我们在与Paris的谈话中感到非常高兴,她同意回答我们所有的问题。

跟大家说一说你对马球的激情。你是在什么年纪认识了马球?是谁最初启发你去打马球?

我是一个马球狂热爱好者,马球给了我自信,让我认识到更多优秀的人。我是在8年前在国外读书接触到马球,当时觉得遥不可及。4年前回国后,在北京唐人马球俱乐部看到刘诗来先生的一个进球,就在那个瞬间,马球运动的魅力征服了我,也就在那个瞬间,我决定开始学习马球。他一个漂亮的击球把我引入了马球的世界。“马球只能是贵族和顶级富豪专属运动的固有思维”,也被这一球击碎了。

跟大家聊一聊你自己。你是在哪里学习马球?

之后,我加入了北京唐人马球俱乐,成为一名马球会员。工作之余,我还到阿根廷、英国、美国和泰国去学习马球。过程中,我结识了很多优秀的马球手:他们即是世界顶级的精英,更是有趣的灵魂。他们为我打开一扇窗,让我看到极致优秀,背后总有修养和谦虚。

你每天日常是什么样的?都是怎样度过?

我每天会坚持跑步,看书,学习,推广马球。马球需要动态,力量,我喜欢用练习大提琴来让自己安静下来。音乐是我的另一种寄托。

你在周末和闲暇的时间都喜欢做些什么?除了打马球,还有什么其他喜欢做的事吗?

业余时间我喜欢和朋友一起打马球,看艺术展或参加各种沙龙活动,和朋友谈事业、谈生活。

你现在学马球和以前年轻时候有什么不同?

因为现在经营企业,学习马球时常会和生活工作结合起来。比如在投资中遇到的问题,经营企业中遇到的问题,同样逻辑会在马球中给我答案。越成熟越有策略性,因为马球运动需要策略与布局,不仅仅是体能。

你通常在哪里练习马球?你拥有多少匹幼马?对马的训练有多严格?

我现在更多时间是在天津我们的1003环亚女子马球学校练球。同时也去世界各地俱乐部通过比赛交流学习马球。我的马并不多,寄养在俱乐部,有专业的驯马师为我调教马匹。

最初是什么想法让你去成立1003马球学校?

为了推广中国马球运动和中国马球传统文化,希望更多精英女性和精英青少年通过1003环亚女子马球学校这个平台,体验极致卓越生活方式及国际精英教育。

谁是潜在学生?

精英女性及精英女性子女都是我们的潜在学生。对自我有极致追求的人,渴望成长和成功的人。精英企业家及家族企业接班人也是我们的潜在学员。

你怎样鼓励更多的女性加入?

我会告诉大家,马球,可以让你遇见更好的自己,可以让你无惧生命的风雨,可以让你可以懂得爱,付出爱

你对从事这项运动的女性有何建议?

马球是考验意志力的运动,希望喜欢骑马,有团队意识的女性们可以坚持下去。

你是参加纯女子比赛还是同时参加男女比赛?你更喜欢哪种,为什么?

我都会参与。马球比赛的男球手居多,一般比赛男女混搭居多。所以全部由女性球手组成的球队格外精彩。就像前不久我们成功举办的国际女子马球比赛——1003 Rose Polo Cup,云集了国际各地优秀女子马球手。

其实两者我都很喜欢参加,有不一样的体验感受。女子展现的是She's Power,节奏偏慢一些,更加注重团队协作。男女混合比赛,节奏更快一些。同时让你知道男人能做到的,女人其实也可以。

你如何看待女企业家?

我觉得女企业家要懂得角色的互换,在商业上的时候,你可以是一个雷厉风行的女强人,在家庭的时候,又是热爱生活的小女人形象。我觉得只有这样角色的互换才能够让你的生活多姿多彩。

你还有什么样的梦想要征服?

希望有中国的青少年未来可以通过1003 Polo作为第一个中国人带队在英国女王杯打比赛。

你如何看待几年后的1003马球学校?你想为学校实现什么吗?

我希望通过女子马球学校有更多的精英女性了解马球、参与马球、学习马球。未来在国际赛场上有更多的中国面孔,在马背上得到世界的尊重。希望未来中国各地有更多的1003 Polo Mini Club & School ,让更多人参与到马球这样运动。

你的原则和座右铭?

拼命生活,努力工作。

你未来几个月的计划和明年计划?

未来会专注第一批女子马球学员的训练计划,和牛津马球企业家游学计划。让更多人参与马球。 明年会继续打造国际女子马球玫瑰杯赛事,并在高校宣传马球运动,明年举办高校马球联赛。

感谢Paris同意与我们的刊物互动,并与我们分享您的一部分生活。你真切地给予了中国的体育精英新的精神和推动力。你的意见是许多其他愿意在生活中实现更高目标的女性的动力。未来的挑战和雄心勃勃的计划让我们迫不及待地想看到你和1003 马球学校的成果以及你的其他项目。我们将很高兴能在未来听到关于他们的事,我们祝你事业有成。

UntitledParis Luo is a polo enthusiast whose dream is to promote women’s polo in China. A pioneer of polo elite education, she founded the 1003 Polo, and chaired the establishment of 1003 Rose Polo School. Her story took place in the outskirts of Tianjin, particularly the exclusive Goldin Metropolitan Polo Club which is considered as the largest polo facility in China. Increasingly, wealthy parents now prefer their child to take on polo and other equestrian sports.

The 1003 Polo School acts as a platform to promote the polo lifestyle as well as embody women empowerment. At its helm, the school hopes to equip more female Chinese polo players to compete in tournaments around the world. What keeps the women’s polo both remarkable and appealing is how the players are able to strike a delicate balance between exemplifying strength on the field while preserving an aura of grace and beauty off-the-field.

The Gala Dinner of the tournament held on Saturday 6th of October featured glitz, glamour and power which was very palpable among the ballroom guests. It was truly a fitting way to uphold an elite women lifestyle, and officially launch the 1003 Polo School and 1003 Rose Polo Cup.

We were delighted during our conversation with Paris Luo, and she agrees to answer all our questions.

3Tell us about your passion for Polo. At what age were you introduced to polo? Who originally inspired you to play Polo?

I am a polo fanatic. Polo makes me confident about myself and lets me meet a lot of excellent people.

The first time I played Polo was at 8 years ago when I was studying in foreign countries. I felt I was out of reach at that time. Then, after coming back to China 4 years ago, I saw Mr. Liu Shilai score a goal at the Beijing Tangren Polo Club. His beautiful shot brought me into the polo world. At that moment, I was truly conquered by the charm of it as a sport. I decided to start learning polo immediately.

The conventional way of thinking that polo is an elite sport of the aristocracy and top wealthy people, was taken over by his shot.

Tell us something about yourself. Where did you study?

I joined and became a member of the Beijing Tangren Polo Club. I also went to Argentina, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Thailand to study polo in my spare time. I met many admirable polo players during this time. They are world’s top elites, and furthermore interesting souls. They opened a window for me and allowed me to see that cultivation of skill and modesty are always behind the ultimate excellence.
2 2Please tell us what your schedule is like. How do you spend a normal day?

I will keep running, reading, learning, and promoting polo every day. Polo needs dynamism and strength. On other days, I like to play the cello to calm myself down. I consider music is another sustenance for me.

What do you like doing on weekends and spare time? What is it that you like doing other than playing polo?

In my spare time, I like to play polo with my friends, visit art exhibitions or participate in various soiree activities. I like talking to friends about career and life in general.
webwxgetmsgimg 22How different was it playing polo when you were young as compared to now?

I usually combine practicing polo with life and work because I am operating a business now.

For example, if I encounter some problems in investments or business operations, polo can give me the answer when applying the same logic. As I become more mature, I pay close attention to the strategy, because polo needs not only physical fitness but also logic and overall arrangement.

Where do you usually practice polo? How many ponies do you own? How rigid is the training?

Now I spend more time to practice polo in our 1003 Central Asian Women’s Polo School in Tianjin. I also go to clubs around the world to communicate and learn polo through competitions at the same time.

I don’t have many horses, though. I am confident of the staff from the club who has professional foreign and local trainers that train my horses very well.
021What started the idea to establish the 1003 Polo School? Who are the potential students? In what way do you encourage more women to enroll?

In order to popularize Chinese polo and Chinese polo traditional culture, we hope to attract more elite women and elite adolescents to experience an international elite education via the platform of the 1003 Central Asian Women’s Polo School.

Elite women and elite female children are our potential students. Those who have the ultimate pursuit of themselves, and who are eager to develop and succeed. Elite entrepreneurs, and successors of the family business are also our potential students.

Polo can let you understand yourself better and be not afraid of anything in life. It also allows you to be understanding of others and love them as they are.
022 1Why advice does you have for women who are taking up the sport?

Polo is a sport that tests your willpower and determination. I hope women enjoy riding horses, get a sense of teamwork and continue playing polo.

Do you play in purely women tournaments or both female and male? What do you prefer and why?

I involve in both purely women and mixed polo. Polo competition has more male players and more mixed players in normal competitions. That is why the team with all female players is extremely wonderful. Just like the international women’s polo match we successfully held, 1003 Rose Polo Cup, has gathered excellent female polo players from all around the world.

Actually, I like to participate in both, as each of them gives me different experience and feeling. Female players show their power with the slower tempo and they pay more attention to team cooperation. Mixed players competition has a higher tempo. At the same time, it lets you prove to others that what men can do, women can do as well.
021 2What do you think about Women Entrepreneurs?

I think that women entrepreneurs need to understand how to act out the role of different personalities. You can be a resolutely strong lady when managing your business. At the same time, you are a woman who loves the simple life with your family. I think, in that way, you get to fulfill different roles and make your life colorful.

How do you see 1003 Polo School in few years from now? What it is that you want to achieve for the school?

I hope that through the women’s polo school, there are more elite women who get to know polo, participate in polo, and learn polo, and more Chinese gain the respect from the world on the international arena.

I hope that there will be more 1003 Polo Mini Clubs & schools in China in the future, so that more people can participate in such sports.
022 6What dreams do you still want to conquer?

I hope that young people in China can play in the Queen’s Cup in the UK through the 1003 Polo as the first Chinese team.

Tell us about the principles or motto that guides you.

Live intensively and hard work.
022 8What is your plan for the upcoming months and the next year?

I will focus on the training programs of the first women’s polo players, and the plan of Oxford Polo Entrepreneur Study Tour. Encourage more people to participate in polo.

I will continue to create the International Women’s Polo Rose Cup event, promote the polo sport in colleges and universities, and hold the college polo league match next year.
027Thank you Paris for agreeing to interact with our publication and sharing this part of your life. You really have brought a new spirit and impulse to the sporting elite in China. Your comments are a motivation for many other women willing to reach higher goals in their life. The challenges ahead and your ambitious plans have got us eagerly waiting to see what is in store for you and 1003 Polo School and your other projects. We will be excited to hear about them in future and we wish you a successful career.
