Polo Awards 2018

Results from the 13th ‘Oscars of Polo’

Last night, the Polo Awards was once again held at Guards Polo Club. This year celebrated the 13th year of the prestigious event, 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 2017 season, as well as recognising the efforts of selected, exceptional individuals. The evening commenced with a Laurent-Perrier champagne reception, accompanied by delicious Mosimann’s canapés, which gave everyone the chance to catch up following the long winter and swap plans for the summer season. As the sun began to set and the mist rolled in across the idyllic Queen’s Ground, guests took their seats and the first of the awards were presented before more Mosimann’s delicacies 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 star-studded 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, so make sure you click here to subscribe.
