British Beach Polo Championship Sandbanks
Horses Thunder Back to Sandbanks. British Beach Polo Championship 2020 – Sandbanks
The British Beach Polo Championships returns to Dorset on 10-11 July 2020. With up to 10,000 people in attendance, it is the biggest beach polo event in the world. Now in its 12th year a veritable feast of fast action, gladiatorial horse polo, beach rugby, fashion and fun is to be had on the platinum beaches of Sandbanks, Poole.
The event will see four competitive polo teams play thrilling polo whilst demonstrating spectacular horsemanship on the sand as they compete for the title of ‘British Beach Polo Champion 2020.’ Spectators are able to watch the professionals up close and personal as they manoeuvre their athletic polo ponies with agility and power.
2020 brings with it more fearless action into the arena in the form of ‘SandScrum’, an exciting clash of exhibition five- a- side beach rugby in association with Bournemouth Rugby Club.
The event attracts a host of top polo players, VIP guests and fashionistas. We celebrate this year with a runway of top models gathering to host ‘The Ibiza Fashion Festival’, a head-turning fashion show and beach style guide to kick each night's party off.
In the evenings, as the sun sets over ‘Old Harry Rocks’ the beach parties begin. This year there is the PURE POLO event on the Friday night with the amazing House & Garage Orchestra headlining. On the final evening, The Sandpolo Ocean Party will be the ultimate finale to the perfect weekend with DJ's Nick Grimshaw (Radio 1), TJ Byham and Jay Welch.
Event Director Johnny Wheeler says ‘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.’
