Polo is a crazy sport. Players tear around a field on horseback trying to knock a ball with huge swinging mallets. Not everyone's lucky enough to own a horse, so the barrier to participation makes it largely a spectator sport – some people simply go for the trend-spotting and shoulder-rubbing.

If you've only seen people with big mallets ride horses in a field before, beach polo works a little differently. Each team consists of three rather than four players, and play periods (or “chukkers”) are restricted to four seven-minute spells.

A range of tickets are available starting with a simple entry fee with no extras, up to deluxe packages that include food and beverages. The Atlantic Group's event arm Tommy Collins will be taking care of catering, and partners Heineken and Veuve Clicquot will handle the beers and bub'.
