RCPB instills values such as sportsmanship, tolerance, friendship, charity, and good rapport through both its sports schools and the organization of its events for the general public.

Charity

Real Club de Polo de Barcelona actively works with charitable causes through its sports divisions. The Club has generously maintained a commitment to various vulnerable groups for years to help socially integrate them and improve their quality of life through sports.

  • Equestrian sports:

Every Wednesday, the equestrian school holds equine-assisted therapy sessions for AREP (Association for the Rehabilitation of People with Mental Illness) members. In these sessions, participants interact with the horses and learn how to take care of them and be responsible for their well-being.

  • Hockey:

Every Thursday and Friday, Hockey + teams train on Field 2. Young people from Centre Ocupacional Les Corts and Escola Paideia come every week to enjoy hockey. Additionally, the Club has a team in the official Hockey + league (organized by the Catalan Federation) with players from both centers.

  • Padel:

Every Wednesday, a dozen young people with special needs from Escola Paideia are given padel classes by Club instructors. Practicing a sport such as padel helps them deepen their personal and social integration.

  • Tennis:

The Club’s tennis division works with Salut Mental Catalunya to hold weekly tennis classes for Foundation members every Thursday at noon. Practicing tennis helps these people socialize.
