The early invadation of the sport in Kottingbrunn became as an attractive spot for the enthusiastic audience of Vienna, Baden along with many distant places. This marked the inauguration of polo in Central Europe.

But this was not always the story. Austria took around 50 years to re-establish the sport in the country after the world economic crisis overshadowed Vienna in 1932. This resulted in the refrainment of the sport under the decision of the Riding and Polo Club, which was followed by a collective movement in 1938/39 across the English community that dissolved all the Polo association.
It was then later in 1991 that Baron Richard Drasche-Wartinberg reintroduced the sport to Austria by opening the Polo Club Schloss Ebreichsdorf. This established the date as the renaissance of polo in Austria, where the grounds of the castle were remodeled, fields and stables were rebuilt, a continuous program of German and Argentine coaches practiced, directing ultimately to the establishment of Polo Club Schloss Ebreichsdorf with regular players.
Austria lately developed the flair of improvement and growth which remains unbeatable till date.
