Polo in the park 2022
Inspiration ~ 6 Jun 2022
June is sure to be an exciting month for us all. After the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in the first weekend of the month, the second weekend in June brings an iconic event that is a highlight in London’s social calendar, Polo in the Park.
From Friday 10th to Sunday 12th, Chestertons Polo in the park will take place in the capital. Hurlingham Polo is shorter and quicker than classic polo, however, that does not mean it is any less fun. The fast-paced format ensures that even first-time guests will understand the use of mallets, divots, and even what Chukka means by the end of the first match.
Alongside polo rules, there are also a few other factors to consider, including, your attire. Similar to the races, attendees tend to be extravagant in their choice of polo outfit, yet unlike the races there are no rules when it comes to dress code, meaning guests can experiment with hemlines and fabrics in their bid to become best dressed.
The weekend offers an incredible social side, delicious food, the opportunity to shop unique boutiques and live music. This June will also see the first-ever International Women’s test match which will be England vs USA. Whether you’re a regular at the polo or are considering joining for the first time, then head to our social media channels for the chance to win tickets to this year’s Polo in the Park.
