The Hurlingham Polo International Day takes place at its newly appointed surroundings at the ‘Home of England Polo’ in Berkshire. General admission and hospitality packages are on sale.
In 2017 the Hurlingham Polo Association named the Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club the Official Home of England Polo a move that heralded a move by ‘The Hurlingham Polo International Day’ – previously known as ‘The Cartier International’ – to Berkshire for the first time in July 2018.
The 49th Hurlingham Polo International Day returns to Winkfield, Windsor, for a glorious day of polo taking place in the English countryside yet within striking distance of London (full schedule below).
Always a big event on the summer sporting calendar the event combines the worlds of fast paced test match polo with the international worlds of film, fashion, entertainment and society, alongside leaders and captains of industry.
After the success of dressage at the 2018 event when triple gold medallist and holder of every world record in the sport, Charlotte Dujardin CBE, held a masterclass on Valegro, her famous mount, this year Carl Hester MBE – a five-time Olympian – will be hosting a dressage masterclass in the morning.
After lunch and pre-match entertainment it will then be time for the main event, The England National Polo Team (Frasers England) playing the principal match against Argentina with the world number one, Facundo Pieres as Captain for Argentina. At stake the prestigious Coronation Cup.
