‘The matches are fast and furious, and the extra-large orange ball, designed not to get lost in the sand, flies around at speeds of up to 100mph.’ The Guardian
The SandPolo at Sandbanks (the British Beach Polo Championships) is the largest beach polo event in the world and receives international press coverage. Polo played in an enclosed arena has been referred to as ‘Ice Hockey on Horse Back’.
Spectators are up close to the action and can fully appreciate the horsemanship, speed and gladiatorial nature of polo. The polo ponies love the sand, they can accelerate and stop fast and can turn extremely sharply.
The thrill and excitement of horses galloping on the sand with the English Channel as a backdrop, whilst sipping champagne is a vision to remember – an intoxicating mix. You’ll find yourself rubbing shoulders with glamorous and even celebrity company, in 2019 we had visits from Harry Redknapp (the King of the Jungle), Nick Knowles, Rita Simons and Strictly favourite Ian Waite. Polo players engage with the sponsors and spectating guests both on and off the pitch.
Following the thrill of the day’s action, the energy continues into the evening and we proceed to the after parties. More details on entertainment 2020 will be released nearer to the time, but to give you a flavour, 2019 saw ‘Pure Polo’ on the Friday night with the House and Garage Orchestra giving guests pure dance nostalgia with remixed house and garage classics. The Saturday night closing ‘Ocean Party’ headlined by Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw had the whole place jumping to the hottest tunes!
‘Only one sport is glamorous enough for the platinum peninsula of Sandbanks.’ The Times
Sandbanks is probably the most exclusive beach community in the UK. The infamous peninsular extends out across Poole Harbour on the scenic Dorset coast. It boasts upmarket luxurious homes and pristine ‘Blue Flag’ beaches.
Poole is easily accessible with a fast rail connection (100 minutes direct from London Waterloo), good road access (30 minutes from Southampton) and 2 International airports within 45 minutes.
