The Sport of Kings is set to return to the Roodee for the first of two 2019 tournaments in June. The White Oak UK Polo Series will take place over two consecutive days; Friday 21 and Saturday 22 June and offers spectators the opportunity to witness the thrill of live polo, pitch-side.
Chester Polo Club are delighted that White Oak UK take Title Sponsorship of the Polo Series in 2019, having supported polo at Chester through recently acquired LDF since 2014.
Natalie Powell, Head of Brand Communications at White Oak UK said;
“This will be our fifth consecutive year as lead sponsors of the Polo International at Chester. We’ve always found this to be a fantastic event that continues to evolve in scale year on year, it’s become a real spectacle in our annual events calendar, for both employees and our corporate guests and so we’re excited to see the White Oak UK Polo Series return in 2019!”
The exhibition series will attract highly skilled teams and players from around the globe to Chester, where there will be the chance to witness outstanding play and sportsmanship in serious games of skill across the two days.
