Polo on the beach 11th September Watergate Bay
The award-winning Veuve Clicquot Polo on the Beach event takes place at Watergate Bay near Newquay, with the promise of speed and excitement featuring some of the country’s top professional polo players. Olympic silver medalist Mary King will be showcasing her horsemanship to play a demonstration match at the sixth edition of the event.
Fresh from her Olympic glory at London 2012, Mary will be visiting Veuve Clicquot Polo on the Beach for the first time along with her daughter Emily, who at 16 years old is one of the most promising young Eventers in the country. Mary King said: “It has been a very busy year and I feel so honoured to have competed in the home Games and to win a silver medal was just fantastic. Emily and I are really looking forward to travelling down to Cornwall and I can’t wait to give polo a go, especially on the beach.”
Tom Joule, Founder & CEO Joules said: “We are thrilled to be sponsoring this truly unique polo experience. We can’t wait to watch Mary take to the beach as she learns to play polo. It’s such a different discipline but we have no doubt that she will take to the game immediately.”
