Bringing together two of New Zealand’s greatest loves, sport and sea, beach polo’s coming to Papamoa.

This summer, beach polo’s happening here! Get ready for a day of fun, glamour and excitement as the southern hemisphere’s top players battle it out on golden sand fringed by the deep blue sea.

A modern take on a traditional, prestigious sport, beach polo is said to have been inspired by snow polo in St Moritz and started in Dubai in 2004; today, more than 18 countries around the globe get involved. And where better to saddle up than on one of the world’s most beautiful beaches: Papamoa.

Grab your friends, talk to your boss, and book corporate hospitality for 20. Enjoy delicious hampers, ice-cold drinks and lots of comfy lounging areas.

It’s not just about the horses. Join the beach dash for your chance to win prizes; have fun with Fashion at the Beach, judged by our very own UNO boys and Rodelle Payne of Sisters & Co; then watch the sun set at the after-party, hosted at The Blue (formerly Bluebiyou).

We can’t think of a better way to round off the working year. See you there!
