About this event

SandPolo 2021

The most illustrious event on the South Coast (UK) social calendar, the SandPolo is THE event of the summer and takes place on the glamorous shores of Sandbanks, UK.

Following the disappointment of not being able to hold the event in 2020, we are looking forward to celebrating the best SandPolo yet in 2021!

THE POLO

‘The matches are fast and furious, and the extra-large orange ball, designed not to get lost in the sand, flies around at speeds of up to 100mph.’ The Guardian

The SandPolo at Sandbanks (the British Beach Polo Championships) is the largest beach polo event in the world and receives international press coverage. Polo played in an enclosed arena has been referred to as ‘Ice Hockey on Horse Back’.

Spectators are up close to the action and can fully appreciate the horsemanship, speed and gladiatorial nature of polo. The polo ponies love the sand, they can accelerate and stop fast and can turn extremely sharply. 

The thrill and excitement of horses galloping on the sand with the English Channel as a backdrop, whilst sipping champagne is a vision to remember – an intoxicating mix. You’ll find yourself rubbing shoulders with glamorous and even celebrity company, we have previously enjoyed visits from Harry Redknapp (the King of the Jungle), Nick Knowles, Rita Simons and Strictly favourite Ian Waite. Polo players engage with the sponsors and spectating guests both on and off the pitch.

THE PARTIES

Following the thrill of the day’s action, the energy continues into the evening and we proceed to the after parties. On the Friday join us for the inaugural ‘Boogie on the Beach’, a spectacular evening of entertainment on the world-famous shores of Sandbanks. Party under the stars to the sounds of internationally acclaimed Soul, Motown and Disco artists. The Saturday night closing ‘GOLD Ocean Party’ will feature Spandau Ballet star Martin Kemp, with an 80s DJ set, alongside special guests!

THE LOCATION

‘Only one sport is glamorous enough for the platinum peninsula of Sandbanks.’ The Times

Sandbanks is probably the most exclusive beach community in the UK. The infamous peninsular extends out across Poole Harbour on the scenic Dorset coast. It boasts upmarket luxurious homes and pristine ‘Blue Flag’ beaches. 

Poole is easily accessible with a fast rail connection (100 minutes direct from London Waterloo), good road access (30 minutes from Southampton) and 2 International airports within 45 minutes.

TICKETS

We have very limited tickets available, from weekend passes to VIP. 

REFUND POLICY

Providing the four national tests for easing restrictions are met (as set out in the Government road map), the social event of the summer, SandPolo, should be able to make a welcome return to your calendars on 9-10 July (under Step 4 guidelines).

Should there be any delay to this easing, we have back-up dates in place of 17-18 September.

Should July not go ahead all tickets are either refundable or can be carried forward to September. If the worst happens and September is not possible then tickets can be carried forward to 2022 or are refundable.

Bronze, Silver and Gold Tickets

Gold is our top grade of ticket and always in high demand. Guests have their own exclusive marquee and the afternoon consists of:

- a champagne reception

- a delicious lunch prepared by our award winning caterers

- enjoy afternoon tea when the polo is truly underway!

Then you can re-charge the batteries and join us for the VIP party later on.

Our Silver guests can reserve a table in VIP providing a base for the day and evening, or just book Bronze tickets for the VIP experience so you can be at the heart of the action at all times.
