What is Sandpolo?
Organises say the polo at Sandbanks (the British Beach Polo Championships) is the largest beach polo event in the world.
Guests will be able to watch fast-paced professional polo, played in a beach arena, while enjoying a glass of rosé or champagne and delicious food.
Polo is played during the day, and when the horses are resting in their stables, players and guests party into the night.
From 7pm each evening, beach parties commence, with world class entertainment taking to the stage and the renowned vista of the Jurassic Coast as the perfect backdrop.
How many people go to Sandpolo?
Around 6,000 people are expected to attend this year.
The entertainment off the polo pitch will see Friday’s ‘Boogie on the Beach’, consist of a soul, motown and disco concept event, act The Real Thing, while Saturday’s Sandpolo weekend closing party welcomes the 14-piece Ibiza Classics Orchestra to the stage, aloingside Soul II Soul’s Jazzie B, and an array of bands and DJ’s.
