Saddle up for Sandbanks sandpolo

It’s that time of year again – ‘The British Beach Polo Championships 2018‘ returns to Sandbanks beach in Poole next weekend. On Friday 13 & Saturday 14 July 2018 ,the Dorset coastline welcomes up to 10,000 people at the largest beach polo event in the world. Now in its 11th year a potent combination of fast action, gladiatorial horse polo, beach rugby, glamour and decadent parties on the platinum beaches of the South coast.

As usual, the four nations of the UK will compete in the ultimate battle of horsemanship. This year, there will also be beach rugby – ‘Sandscrum’ – with five-a-side teams tackling it out on the sand.

There’s always something to keep the WAGs occupiec and this year it’s ‘The Ibiza Fashion Festival’, a head-turning fashion show and beach style guide to kick each night’s party off.

Event Director Johnny Wheeler said: “We are blessed to be able to stage our event on the magnificent Sandbanks beach and enjoy such close co-operation with the local Council. Year after year we attract the finest polo players, wonderful sponsors and partners and a ‘full house’ of supporters.”

Tickets range from £25 to £165; see www.sandpolo.com
