From Glyndebourne to Glastonbury - A social calendar for the 21st century
Mercedes-Benz Polo Challenge
20 July, 2013 - 24 August, 2013
Bridgehampton Polo Club, Long Island
Held at the Bridgehampton Polo Club in the exclusive Hamptons, this annual Mercedes polo event draws the crowds for world-class polo and a chance to spot the many celebrities who attend. Famous faces that have been spotted stamping the divots include Ralph Lauren, Brooke Shields, Heather Graham, Chloë Sevigny, Christy Brinkley, Steven Spielberg and Harvey Weinstein.
The event takes place on six consecutive summer Saturdays in July and August, and is an integral part of the Hamptons summer season. This wealthy enclave on Long Island is the summer bolthole of New Yorkers and A-list celebrities. Just 100 miles east of Manhattan, it is a glamorous area of sandy beaches, seafront mansions and quaint seaside villages.
The Bridgehampton Polo Club is open to all, with general admission tickets available on the day of the match at a very reasonable price. The VIP tent is reserved for sponsors and invited guests only.
2013 dates are provisional.
