Sandbanks Beach hosts a rather glamorous event each year in the form of the British Polo Beach Championships. The event usually falls over a weekend in July and it sees some of the finest polo teams from across the UK hit the sand and battle for the Championship title. The event usually runs alongside the Oakley Professional Beach Volleyball, so all the action centres around the sand during this eventful weekend.
Tickets are always available well before the event and they range from general admission level through to VIP ones for those who want to indulge for the weekend. For those keen to enjoy as much glitz as possible during the weekend the sand polo beach parties welcome the players, the famous and lucky supporters. They tend to go on throughout the night and are a fantastic opportunity to relax after the adrenalin of the matches.
The polo makes a stunning spectacle even for those who don’t follow the game, and there are always plenty of events running for the whole family throughout the weekend. Refreshments are always available and when the weather’s kind this is one of Dorset’s most popular annual events.
