Veuve Clicquot Polo on the Beach has grown to become one of the top events in the Cornish calendar bringing the glamorous and traditional sport to one of the country’s most innovative beach destinations.
The award-winning event has consistently captured the imagination of people throughout the country, generating national and international media coverage, and this year was no exception with two days packed with entertainment and some Polo on the Beach ‘firsts’ including a ladies match and Segway polo. Veuve Clicquot Polo on the Beach 2014 received record attendance figures, proving it to be a really valuable event for all our sponsors and already we are planning for even more in 2015. Polo on the Beach is free to attend so we depend on the support of our sponsors and organisations like FEAST to ensure that we create a successful and engaging event for the local community and those who travel to Watergate Bay. This year we were keen to involve communities around Newquay more closely so we created a surprise flash mob dance half way through the ladies match on Saturday. Read about it on our blog.
We were delighted to be once again working with title sponsor Veuve Clicquot along with mens’ team sponsors Joules and First Great Western. For the first time we played a professional ladies match as well as a Cornwall vs Rest of the World match on Sunday 6th July. This year the Cornwall team were sponsored by Cornwall Farmers Patch & Acre and the ROW team sponsored by HSBC. Our trophy sponsors included Land Rover Carrs Truro alongside Cornwall Farmers Patch & Acre, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all our sponsors for their continued support.
