Polo is back at Callian, beside the beautiful Lac St. Cassien – an ideal place for your pre-polo picnic and snooze in readiness for the fun to come!

As always the event will have that country feel with a touch of class, or is that the other way around? So what do you get? Good question, glad you asked. You get to watch polo!!

If that is not enough then there are artisan displays, stuff to keep the kids occupied when not transfixed by the ponies, a live band & DJ, a US style dinner (this needs to be booked and quick) plus other things such as polo demonstrations – a real opportunity to get up close and personal with the ponies and the riders!

Polo is an international sport, the players come from all parts of the world, some from as far away as Monaco, ok South America too which is a bit further on, as well as other countries not so well know for polo, like Russia. It attracts an international spectator crowd as well who are happy to mix and chat, this is a social event too, very much in the spirit of the game.
