The new polo season gets underway on the Riviera with the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party on Saturday, 18th July in the lovely setting of Callian.

This is going to be a great day for all the family, with pre-paid tickets for entry available online for only €15 + fees.  Entry on the day itself will cost €25. Plus on offer is a three course International buffet after the polo, provided by our good friends in Events By George, costing €38,50 (entrance not included) — you need to book in advance for this. 

So be prepared for a great day of polo with international and regional players plus music, plus artisans village with Scapa Sports polo wear. Also, for the first time Mike, our intrepid reporter, will have a tent all to himself — do drop in and say hello!

Riviera Radio’s very own Dj Mark Dezzani and Will Jones provide the music and keep you up on the polo action. Three teams — Riviera Polo Team, Blohm+Voss and Scapa Sports — will face off for the trophy of the 10th edition Champagne&Chukkas Polo tournament.
