Family Day out at The Diplomats Polo Cup - Prague. “The Sport of Kings”
The Diplomats Polo Cup – Prague 2015 - 4th till 6th of June
The three-day tournament is hosted by the Aviator Polo Club in Prague, will take place in CONSEQ Park, Velká Chuchle and is open to public with the Grand Finals taking place on Saturday June 6th from 12:00 noon. Polo fans, horse enthusiasts as well as active families are welcome to come and enjoy a day out and have a picnic at an exciting and unique sports event. A polo match can be just as engaging off the field as on and don’t forget to participate in the long-standing half-time tradition of “divot stomping” where spectators converge onto the field to stomp down the turf that has been torn up by the pony’s hooves.
Four teams of four players with a team handicap of up to + 3 are registered to compete for this prestigious cup. Players are coming from Europe and worldwide and consist of enthusiastic amateurs and polo professionals. Exciting and high profile matches are therefore guaranteed.
On Thursday and Friday the matches will start from 2:30 pm and Saturday's grand finals from 12:00 noon. Saturday's grand finals will include an opening ceremony with a representative from the Mexican Embassy, cultural entertainment, „have-a-go-Polo“ practice area, children's corner by Pink Crocodile, bouncy castle, pony riding, VIP enclosure & tent, BMW test driving, award ceremony and much more. Numerous stands selling food and drinks will also be available. There will be prizes for best dressed Lady and Gentleman, so if you want to be in the running you had better let your sartorial elegance shine! If you want to brush up a bit on your polo etiquette check out the Debretts guide.
Team Sponsors of the event are: BMW, Chateau Nine Peaks, EE Engine and Thun. Further sponsors include renowned companies such as Raiffeissen Leasing, Darboven, Letensky Zameček, Prague Business Club, Network Lounge, Insight home, HomeArt, MoveOne, Planet Systems, Coca-Cola, Mattoni, and more.
