Horses Thunder Back to Sandbanks. Sandpolo – Sandbanks
Sandpolo returns to Dorset on 9 & 10 July 2021. With up to 10,000 people in attendance, it is the biggest beach polo event in the world. Now in its 13th year a veritable feast of fast action, gladiatorial horse polo, beach rugby, fashion and fun is to be had on Sandbanks Beach in Poole.
The event will see four competitive polo teams play thrilling polo whilst demonstrating spectacular horsemanship on the sand as they compete for the title of ‘British Beach Polo Champion 2021.’ Spectators are able to watch the professionals up close and personal as they manoeuvre their athletic polo ponies with agility and power.
2021 will bring with it more fearless action into the arena in the form of ‘SandScrum’, an exciting clash of exhibition five- a- side beach rugby in association with Bournemouth Rugby Club.
The event attracts a host of top polo players, VIP guests and fashionistas. We celebrate this year with a runway of top models gathering to host ‘The Ibiza Fashion Festival’, a head-turning fashion show and beach style guide to kick each night's party off.
In the evening, as the sun sets over “Old Harry Rocks” the beach parties begin. This year sees Boogie on the Beach on Friday, an exciting new Soul, Motown and Disco event kicking off at 7pm. The legendary British soul group the Real Thing will be headlining. Saturday welcomes you back to the 80’s with our Gold Eighties Ocean Party. Internationally acclaimed acts will celebrate this iconic era and close our weekend in style.
Event Director Johnny Wheeler says ‘We are blessed to be able to stage our event on the magnificent Sandbanks beach and enjoy such close co-operation with the local Council. Year after year we attract the finest polo players, wonderful sponsors and partners and a ‘full house’ of supporters.’
