Chestertons has been supporting the Hurlingham Park event since 2009 and it is now one of the biggest polo events in the world.
Chestertons has confirmed it will be the headline sponsor for this year’s Polo in the Park tournament – one of London’s most popular events attracting 30,000 people over three days in June and one of the biggest polo tournaments in the world.
The London estate agent has been supporting the event since it started in 2009 and has been headline sponsor since 2014. The event is held in Hurlingham Park, Fulham, which sits on the site of the original polo fields where the game was first played in this country.
Giles Milner, Chief Marketing Officer of Chestertons, says: “Not only does Chestertons Polo in the Park make a fantastic sport more accessible by bringing it into a central London location but also is a great platform for entertaining people of all ages.
“This is the event that our staff, clients, customers and friends look forward to most.”
Rory Heron, Chief Executive of Sportgate International – the event organiser – adds: “We are so lucky to have enjoyed Chestertons’ support for so long.
“They have helped shape the event over the last 12 years and it wouldn’t be the event it is today without them.”
Each day Polo in the Park has a different theme to ensure all visitors can experience a fun-filled day whether that’s watching the polo, socialising with friends and meeting new people, or enjoying a range of food at the onsite Fulham Food Festival.
Friday tends to attract the ‘after-work crowd’ and businesses who want to entertain their staff or clients with something a little different; Saturday is the official Ladies Day and Sunday is the designated Family Day, kicking off with London’s largest kids party before the tournament’s knock-out rounds decide the ultimate winners.
