Attracting some of the best polo players in the world since its inception in 2009, the Polo Club St. Tropez will once again host British Polo Day this year as Britain take on France.
Taking place in Gassin, arguably one of the most stunning listed villages of France, the club's headquarters are nestled between the glamour of St. Tropez and endless stretches of the beaches of Pampelonne.
Offering the perfect opportunity for a superyacht charter in the South of France, the event offers a busy social calendar, with pool parties and sipping champagne in the sun on the agenda.
Renowned for its championing of British Luxury Heritage, the event is part of a network of ten events worldwide, spanning from Abu Dhabi to Australia, and is the only polo network of its kind worldwide. Each event involves a team of British polo players competing against a team from the home country, with over thirty top British luxury brands also on display.
Expanding with each edition, fans of British Polo Day include Sir Richard Branson and 12 Royal families across the globe. To date, British Polo Day has raised approximately $1.3 million for charity.
