London's hottest polo event kicks off the summer. The Chestertons Polo in the Park event at Hurlingham Park brings together a dazzling combination of international polo and family entertainment to form an unforgettable day out.
More than 100 years ago, Hurlingham Park hosted regular weekly fixtures of polo as it was then the
Hurlingham Club’s number one polo field and weekend crowds would gather for the summer social
scene. Polo continued to be played in Hurlingham Park right up until 1939, but, with the onset of World War II,
the fields were given over to the ‘Dig for Victory’ food production campaign and Hurlingham’s polo days
became a distant memory. In 2009, City Events Ltd created the City Polo Series and brought polo back
home to its central London roots.
Cost: £35.00 per ticket available from http://www.polointheparklondon.com/the-event
