What’s On: The Hurlingham Polo International Day on Saturday 27th July

The Hurlingham Polo International Day is the most anticipated annual polo spectacular and has always been one of the highest profile sporting events in the summer calendar. This year’s world-class day promises to be one of the standout social events of the year, with the Frasers England Polo Team playing the principal match against Argentina, in a bid to win The Coronation Cup.

Hurlingham Polo Association Chief Executive, David Woodd said; “We are delighted to be returning for the second Hurlingham Polo International at the Royal County of Berkshire Polo club and we look forward to the fast-paced action of the match between Argentina and Frasers England. You are guaranteed to see some of the best polo in the world when the two teams battle it out for the prestigious Coronation Cup on the 27th July”.

Once again there will be a ‘Through the Levels Dressage Masterclass’ delivered by critically acclaimed, five times Olympic British dressage rider, Carl Hester, MBE which is a wonderful follow on from last year’s triple Olympic Gold Medalist, Charlotte Dujardin CBE. Hester will be giving a rare UK masterclass as he demonstrates the training techniques which earned him his place on the world stage in Dressage. This move is part of a long-term strategy by the Club’s Chairman and professional polo player, Jamie Morrison, to bring the equestrian disciplines closer together and to encourage new audiences to immerse themselves in Polo.

The organisers have confirmed the continued support of Frasers, Paul & Shark, Flannels, Globe-Trotter, CNBC, FT How to Spend it, De Vere Hotels and Thai Polo.

The Hurlingham Polo International Day combines the worlds of fast paced test match polo with the international worlds of film, fashion, entertainment and society, alongside leaders and captains of industry. To experience the best view of the Polo match and gain access to players and VIPs, The 85 Club – named after the founding year of the Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club – offers world class hospitality. For those wishing to continue celebrations post Polo, the infamous After-Party will be hosted by a luxury London brand, soon to be announced, renowned for its iconic guestlist. This is where high society and rock star royalty alike will enjoy the biggest party in polo!

The event’s Shopping Village is without question a must-visit element of the day and welcomes an eclectic mix of exhibitors. From fashion, art and beauty to purveyors of the finest food and drink, there will be something for everyone.

All will be set within the surroundings of the Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club, across vast acres of lush English countryside.
