Polo on the Beach

The date has been set. Polo on the Beach 2014 will take place over the weekend of Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th July and it’s free to attend.

Now in it’s eighth year, Polo on the Beach weekend will focus around the main Watergate Bay Trophy match played on Saturday 5th July between team Joules and team First Great Western, two teams made up of some of the countries finest polo players.

This year we will have three polo matches on the sand. We’ll start with an all ladies match, a first for Polo on the Beach and sponsored by Udo’s Choice, which will then lead up to the Watergate Bay Trophy match, with Cornwall vs Rest of the World polo, sponsored by Cornwall Farmers Patch & Acre, played on Sunday 6th July.

The weekend will focus around the polo but we are also planning lots of other exciting events to entertain the crowds including polo demonstrations and a horse stunt show. Activities will begin in the arena each day in the early afternoon, along with a Veuve Clicquot Champagne bar, The Beach Hut barbecue & bar and live music, and on Saturday 5th July music will continue on the beach into the evening. A full timetable will be confirmed soon.

This years VIP House party tickets at Watergate Bay Hotel, are now on sale.

Take a look at last years Event Guide where as well as two top class polo matches there was plenty of horse entertainment with the kitesurfer vs polo pony challenge and The Devil’s Horsemen display team.
