The Countdown to Beach Polo

The countdown has begun to one of the south coast’s best summer sporting and social events of the year – the British Beach Polo Championships! 

Organiser, Sandpolo Ltd has pulled out all the stops to make the event the most action-packed and exciting two days you can spend on the beautiful Sandbanks Beach in Poole. Held on the 8th and 9th July, The British Beach Polo Championships combines something to suit all interests and tastes, whether it is sporting action, fine food and wine, amazing live music and entertainment or a spot of retail therapy.

Johnny Wheeler, from Sandpolo events said: "We are all very excited about this year’s event – it is going to be spectacular! For the first time in the event’s history the finest polo players from England and Australia will battle it out on the sand. Headed up by England’s Jack Kidd and Glen Gilmore from Australia it will be a game that no one will want to miss! We also have the TeamBath and Oakley UK professional volleyball players, which includes Olympic hopefuls Tom Lord and Robin Miedzybrodzki. The line up combines all the best in sand sport, and what better beach to play on than Sandbanks!

"The evening’s entertainment is also amazing and has everything from live music to world renowned DJ’s and artists. The event this year is already creating a buzz on the street and we are expecting people not just from the UK, but worldwide, to visit us during the two day event. The British Beach Polo Championships really is the hottest ticket in town at the moment and we are really pleased that people are getting so excited about the event – we can’t wait!"

Each evening the day’s sporting action ends and the beach comes alive with music. Friday is the Wave 105 Beach Polo Party with DJ's Steve Power and Mark Collins getting the crowd on the dance floor and chart-topping band, The Hoosiers playing a live set to really get the party swinging!

Saturday evening is going to end the event off spectacularly thanks to top club, Amika London. With a line-up of live music from Pola, X Factor finalist, John Wilding, Bloomfield Avenue and top international DJ, Colin ‘StarRocker’ Pereira, it will be a fitting end to an amazing event.
