Gold Cup 2011 - Sydney Polo Club

Did you know that Polo is the oldest team sport in existence, with the first matches being played in Persia over 2500 years ago! Polo is alive and well in Australia today, and it's not just for the rich and famous. Sydney Polo Club will open the gates to Peter and Rebecca Higgins’ exclusive, privately owned polo estate when it hosts it’s annual Polo Tournament, The Gold Cup on the 23rd of October, 2011 at Richmond NSW. The Sydney Polo Club is situated on the spectacular Hawkesbury River only 50 mins from Sydney CBD. Everyone is welcome to this fun and excitement packed family day. General admission is $10 per car or buy tickets to the VIP enclosure! Go to www.sydneypolo.com for full details. On tournament days white marquees grace the sidelines of The Celebrity field. The Gold Cup provides a unique and decidedly chic venue for meeting up with old friends and making new contacts. As a result of the partnerships we have built with car clubs from all over Australia, row upon row of vintage and classic cars line the fields. The Sydney Gold Cup provides something for the entire family, including jumping castles, face painting, balloons and more to ensure our younger polo fans enjoy the day as much as the adults. The Sydney Gold Cup day begins at 10.30am with the first of 3 finals being played on The Celebrity Field. Hundreds of horses arrive on semi-trailers, and the sidelines are a hive of activity as horse grooms and players make the final preparations for the game. Horses are brushed, tacked up and look immaculate in readiness for the game, and the air is heavy with anticipation. No other sport in the world unites fine sportsmanship with the prestige, glamour and incomparable excitement of polo. Please come and join us, experience the mastery and skill of the world's fastest ball sport. Relax with friends and family under the trees and enjoy being part of this unique event. Regards Rebecca
