Chestertons, one of London’s largest estate agencies, has announced that, for the second consecutive year, it will be the headline sponsor of one of the capital’s most prestigious social events - Chestertons Polo in the Park.
Now in its seventh year, Chestertons Polo in the Park will take place on the 5th, 6th and 7th June at Hurlingham Park in Fulham, attracting crowds of around 30,000 across the three days. The tournament brings world class polo right to the heart of London and, with its vibrant atmosphere and thrilling polo on display, is now firmly established as one of London’s hottest events.
Giles Milner, Chestertons’ Marketing Director, comments: “Last year was our first year as title sponsors, and we used it to officially launch our new brand, Chestertons, following the de-merger from our sister company, Humberts. This year, we will be celebrating the first birthday of the new Chestertons and are working closely with the organisers to introduce new and exciting elements to the event.
“It is unusual for an estate agent to sponsor such a large and high-profile event, but Chestertons is a global brand with offices across the world and we are always looking at ways of bringing benefits and new opportunities to the communities in which we work. One of the reasons we support this particular event so strongly is that we recognise just how many exciting and unusual opportunities can be offered to local residents of all ages, from sharing the area’s historic connection with polo with local homeowners through to giving schoolchildren the chance to learn how to play polo at Chestertons’ Polo Academy.”
Rory Heron, Managing Director of Sportgate International Ltd, the owners of Chestertons Polo in the Park comments: “It is very special to work with such an engaged sponsor as Chestertons. Not only does the team work closely with us to ensure that we put on the best possible event, but they are also working incessantly with the local residents, looking at how we can improve Hurlingham Park, create better facilities and raise money for local charities. The perfect sponsor!”
Six teams, representing cities from around the world, play with three-man teams on a slightly smaller field than usual, meaning the action is never far away from the spectator. The traditional rules are adapted to create a much more spectator-friendly game - perfect for polo newcomers. This year the visiting teams taking on the London home team are last year’s winners Abu Dhabi, Lagos, Singapore, Sydney and Buenos Aires.
