Chestertons Polo in the Park 2014 launches with style
Team draws announced and title sponsor rebrands as “Chestertons”
Last night saw the launch of Chestertons Polo in the Park 2014, at a glamorous sponsors’ reception held at the exquisite Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park.
Some of the world’s most respected players attended the reception, including crowd favourite George Meyrick, who will be captaining City AM Team London; Oscar Mancini, the legendary Argentine captain for Air Europa Team Buenos Aires; and four time winner, Jamie Morrison, who returns this year for his sixth Chestertons Polo in the Park, as captain of Team New York. All three captains will compete for glory alongside the other three teams: Team Abu Dhabi, Mandarin Oriental Team Beijing and IG Team Sydney, in the UK’s largest polo event on the 6th, 7th and 8th of June.
In addition to the team draw, Chesterton Humberts – Polo in the Park’s new title sponsor – used this opportunity to officially rebrand as “Chestertons”. The estate agency has been involved with Polo in the Park since its inception and is a perfect fit for this event.
Now in its sixth year, Chestertons Polo in the Park has solidified its reputation as one of London’s largest and grandest social eventsLive, with the annual team draw and sponsors’ reception marking the start of the capital’s social season. Last year, over 25,000 people attended the event held at the iconic birthplace of modern Polo, Hurlingham Park, and this year is set to be better than ever.
“Chestertons Polo in the Park has made polo more accessible to a wider audience and has grown to become a hugely successful and anticipated event on the London summer sporting and social calendars. We look forward to welcoming people back to the hallowed fields of Hurlingham Park for what will surely be the most successful event to date.”
