Ladies Day by Little Miracles Drinks – Polo in the Park
The second day of Chestertons Polo in the Park was sold out for a reason, it was Ladies Day sponsored by Little Miracles Drink. I was honored to have been invited by the main sponsors of the event Chestertons, as I helped write the “What to wear at Chestertons Polo in the Park” article on their website before the event.
I must say that one of my favorite parts of this day was to people-watch and look at all the stunning #MyPoloStyle outfits the ladies were wearing. I chose my absolute favorites to showcase here and they are definitely inspirations for my next polo adventures, the Scandinavian Beach Polo World Cup in Denmark.
Polo-wise it was another great afternoon of excellent polo matches and wonderful weather. American/Argentinian star player Nic Roldan, currently 8 goals and therefore the highest handicapped player on the field, replaced the Aussie 7-goaler Ruki Ballieu and gave the sold-out crowd (especially the ladies) a show.
The match between team Davos and team Hong Kong was a nail-biter as these great players battled out their skills throughout the entire match and ended with a win for team Hong Kong.
We met up with these lovely guys in the La Martina tent after the match. Through the years I keep bumping in to them, from Buenos Aires to Dubai and of course in London at Chestertons Polo in the Park, where they have become the regular star players. Always great seeing them.
Between matches it was time to do some wandering around in the different pop-up boutiques and we were especially drawn to the stone-oven pizza. Yummy is all I have to say!
The second match of the day was a fight between team Lagos and the home-team London. After yesterday’s defeat to team Abu Dhabi I am sure the La Martina ambassadors were relieved and happy to call themselves the winners at 4 to 3. They looked pretty happy too.
Our friends from the desert were ready and pumped, following their victory last year and the day before. They looked ready to take on team Dublin in the third and last match of the day.
Mohammed showed some excellent polo skills and brought team Abu Dhabi ahead by the end of the second chukker, making us all think that they would be in the finals again, but the Irish luck kicked in and Le Poer scored a 2-pointer giving them a lead followed by another goal by Dawnay and the hooter went with Dublin heading to the finals.
As the sun was setting and the grounds were closing it was time to head to the local pub for some after-polo-Pimm’s.
Day 2 of Chestertons Polo in the Park was a lot of fun, stay tuned for finals day coming up tomorrow. Subscribe below (on mobile) or up on the top right corner (on web browser) to receive an e-mail when there is a new blogpost, no spam, just my little stories from my #PoloLife
