One of the World’s most glamorous games, Beach Polo, is set to tear up the sands once again at Glenelg beach on February 10, supported by international brand Champagne Pol Roger, which returns this year as the presenting partner.
The masterminds behind one of Adelaide’s most loved and prestigious events, Polo in the City, now present you with sensational Beach Polo, which will be making its second appearance in South Australia.
This year’s highlight is the introduction of an international match between Singapore and Australia, as part of the emerging World Beach Polo series. The Singapore team will be led by one of Singapore’s most successful businessmen, billionaire, Iqbal Jumabhoy, and his nephew, described as Asia’s answer to Nacho Figueras, Ameer Jumabhoy.
No one does hospitality like Beach Polo!
This year, VIPs will be able to once again assume a barefoot and perfectly elegant guise, inside the opulent ocean view VIP Pol Roger Marquee. They will feel like they have materialised somewhere in the South of France, Ibiza or Miami, as they sip Champagne while games of polo unfold before their eyes upon the pristine white sands of Glenelg Beach, against an azure backdrop of St Vincent Gulf.
Launching for the first time this year will be the much anticipated, Sesión Tequila Beach Club (Sesión Tequila is a brand owned by Australia’s favourite supermodel, Jennifer Hawkins and husband Jake Wall), tickets for which will cost $185, inclusive of food and beverage. The deluxe Sesión Tequila Beach Club experience, based on the iconic Mexican beach clubs, will allow guests to Sip Sesión Tequila cocktails, and a selection of other drinks, with sand between their toes, while admiring the wide expanse of the cerulean St Vincent Gulf and revelling in the polo action and fashion displays, or grooving to the tunes of the resident DJ. Beach Polo is excited to be hosting this brand new initiative.
Another exciting addition to the hospitality profile is the Ambra Liqueur Bar. For $85 guests will have access to prime polo viewing positions, a cash bar for food and alcohol, featuring the Ambra Spritzer, as well as the chance to meet the players and participate in a variety of activities to win exciting prizes, such as the Fashion on the Beach competition, the Dash and many more.
Other than Pol Roger Champagne, returning sponsors from last year include Lexus of Adelaide, who will be providing umpiring services, Glenelg Jetty, who will sponsor a Team taking on Team Fox Real Estate and Trojan Security. Local winery Penley estate will supply wines while The Stamford Hotel has come aboard as the Official Hotel and After Party venue.
