Polo Awards 2017

Results from the 12th ‘Oscars of Polo’

Last night, the Polo Awards was once again held at Guards Polo Club. This year celebrated the 12th year of the Polo Awards, and last night the Guards’ Clubhouse was filled with professionals, patrons, families and friends of the polo community from far and wide. All guests were celebrating the achievements of the 2016 season, as well as recognising the efforts of selected individuals. The evening began with a Laurent-Perrier champagne reception, accompanied with delicious Mosimann’s canapés, which gave everyone the chance to catch up and swap plans for this season. As the sun began to set, guests took their seats and the first of the awards were presented before more Mosimann’s delights were served for supper. As the presentations came to a close, the revelry continued into the bar until final carriages signalled the end of another entertaining evening celebrating the excellence and talent of polo. A full report from the evening, as well as social pictures will follow in the next issue of Polo Times, click here to subscribe.
