It’s the biggest event in the international polo calendar
The world’s best polo players from England, the US, Chile, Argentina, Spain, India and New Zealand will go head to head with our own at the sport’s world championships, hosted this year at the Sydney Polo Club in Richmond.
Teams will compete for the Perpetual Cup over 14 matches, but during the nine days there’ll be plenty of other activities for visitors of all generations to enjoy, from face painting, jumping castles and a petting zoo for the kids to markets, art exhibitions, live music and a vintage car display for the grown-ups.
There are other equestrian sports being showcased, too – jousting, dressage, Olympic show jumping and even rodeo are on the schedule. Visitors are encouraged to get behind their team and arrive in costumes, face paint and as many flags as they can hoist. Make the most of the club’s grassy surrounds by grabbing a picnic hamper onsite – each one comes with charcuterie, antipasto and salad, plus cheese and Adriano Zumbo macarons for dessert.
