Went Polo last weekend and it was such fun!!! Much different fun from Ascot. I think for one the crowd is much more youthful and relaxed at Polo. My first time going for Polo in The Park and it was much more fun than all my previous outings to Polo. I absolutely loved it and would recommend it as a fun day out to anyone planning to summer in London…
White was a no brainer choice for me to Polo. With BBC Weather as our guide we got tickets for the final day off their website for £35 jumped on the district line to Putney Bridge and had an absolute blast in the sun… It was cooking! Can I just say here how beautiful Putney and Parsons Green are? The lushness of that neighbourhood is…It’s no wonder they have Polo grounds. Would go back for a day just to explore Putney/Parsons Green.
The grounds was littered with a Lanson Champagne bar, many shops, food stands and restaurants…A fair and Polo all in one. The prices of the items in the store though…We walked into one and didn’t bother with the rest…Like this one with real fur for sale…hahaha!
After settling in with our drinks we watched the first match which was the final between the runners up; Team New York v Dubai and then the subsidiary final match between Team London V Team Buenos Aires…..Last match was the Polo in the Park Final between Team Hong Kong V Team Marrakech.
The sun was cooking so we got some ice-cream! In between matches we were asked to come on the field to help pat the grass down…Lovely pretty woman moment as some of the ladies said…. 🙂 Well I patted down some but then just continued taking pictures…The day was just too beautiful!
After ice-cream and before the final we went to the Maliki tent to cool off with more drinks and some dancing :-p we watched the final from there.
Bumped into some fun facts and took a snap of one with Lagos city on it. Didn’t see them play this year though…may be next time.
Such good fun…Looking forward to going Polo In the Park again…
Was a brilliant sunday at Polo…not going to forget this experience anytime soon…x
