TEN YEARS OF POLO ON BEACH
We're taking a break
This year we are taking a break and Polo on the Beach will not be happening in 2018.
This is what we got up to on our tenth edition last year…
Aspall Polo on the Beach was be a three day festival of polo and family beach fun on Friday 19, Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 May 2017 with the two main polo matches being played at 6.30pm on Friday and Saturday.
There was lots to do on the beach, as well as world-class polo. Everything kicked off in the arena from 3pm on Friday and Saturday and at 10.30am on Sunday with the dog show.
There was much more than just polo!
On Friday evening following the trophy presentations there was be a food-led event on the beach with live music and fireworks, their was also be a ticketed Argentinian Asado beach BBQ.
On Saturday from 7.30pm there was our annual ticketed Polo on the Beach party with three acts including William The Conqueror, The Andy Quick Band and Molotov Jukebox.
There was lots of exciting events and activities inside the arena and on the beach in the build-up to our main polo matches, including polo demonstrations, a horse jousting display, Segway polo and a return of the popular Sunday family dog show from St Francis Home for Animals.
The festival feel continued well into the night with live music both nights. Street food stalls will line the arena alongside a Champagne garden and Aspall beach bar.
But most importantly polo remained FREE to attend!
Conde Nast Traveller 1 August 2014
“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.”
