Guards Polo Club

Since its inception in the 1950’s, Guards Polo Club has grown considerably and is now the largest and most exclusive polo club in Europe, making Windsor Great Park the ideal setting in which to appreciate world-class polo. Cartier International Polo epitomises the high society lifestyle enjoyed by Royalty and celebrities alike. In 2005, Prince William and Harry joined the Prince of Wales’ side and not only displayed fine polo skills but a willingness to mingle amongst the glamour set. 2006 saw Prince Harry’s third appearance as guest star on the Prince of Wales’ side, helping the home team ease into a 3-1 victory against New Zealand. Last year saw celebrities such as Mischa Barton, Matt Dawson, Freddie Ljungberg and Louise and Jamie Redknapp mingling among guests on the lawn who ventured into the Guards Polo Club for this unforgettable social and sporting event.

Once again Guards Polo Club, the largest and most exclusive polo club in Europe, will play host to this truly aristocratic event. In attendance you will find Royalty, celebrities and VIPs who all enjoy this unique event.
