|Over 2,000 Free Polo Tickets Available|
Enter the ballot to win your place at big summer event
Over 2,000 free tickets for this summer's MINT Polo in the Park are once again available to local residents.
Last year’s competition was voted the best sporting event in the capital and was also named Sport Attraction of the Year at the prestigious London Lifestyle Awards.
Greg Smith, Cabinet Member for Residents’ Services, says:
The first two polo events saw the council negotiate a raft of improvements from the organisers. These included improved quality pitches and sports equipment for schools and groups using the park. This year, the organisers will be improving irrigation in the park. An enhanced maintenance and reinstatement ground works programme will also take place pre and post event which includes reducing ground compaction, seeding and fertilisation.
There will also be a programme of discover polo days and a competition for Borough school children to learn about the sport and the polo heritage of Hurlingham Park.
