back for a tenth year
Free to attend!
Plans are afoot for our tenth year, we’ll tell you more soon. This is what happened in 2015…
GWR Polo on the Beach 2015 took place on the beach at Watergate Bay on Friday 26, Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 June 2015.
Thanks to everyone who came, supported, played, welly-wanged and more – you made our event bigger and better than ever before. It wouldn’t be GWR Polo on the Beach without the polo, and this year three matches were played with a Friday and Saturday evening match at 6pm and one on Sunday morning at 11.30am.
But it was more than polo too! For 2015 there were lots of exciting events in the build-up to our main event. Polo demonstrations, beach activities, the Devil’s Horseman display team (last seen here in 2013), activities for the children organised by our Kid’s Zone, Sunday Superfoxx Yoga with Krystalroxx, a public dog show from St Francis Home for Animals and Watergate Bay Surf Lifesaving Club and more all kept the crowds entertained throughout the weekend. The festival feel continued well into the sunset with live music and the ticketed GWR Polo on the Beach Party on Saturday night.
Street food stalls including the Cornwall Curry Company and Craftworks Kitchen dished up delicious all weekend, and we know many also took advantage of the Champagne garden, the GWR Horse and Carriage beach bar and Bath Gin bar.
But most importantly, it was all FREE to attend!
We look forward to seeing you in 2016.

“There was yet more sparkle to spectator sport this month in Cornwall at Watergate Bay, where England player Jamie Le Hardy competed at Polo on the Beach. Match times were determined by the tide, but bubbly flowed all day from the shiny Airstream parked on the sand.”
