Smart casual – you will look out of place in jeans, trainers or sportswear! All seating is uncovered – please dress appropriately. Ladies! please bring suitable shoes as some parts of the site are on sand and access to the site will require you to walk across the beach.


There will be a variety of good quality, reasonably priced food and beverages at the event throughout the day. No food or drinks (other than water) is to be brought into the event area. Guests will be welcome to leave the event at any stage to take advantage of the other catering outlets on or near the beach. Sandpolo hospitality guests will be catered for throughout in the Arena Marquee. Please do not bring any glass to the event.


Bags may be checked by the event organisers at any time. Cancellation of the event will only take place if extreme circumstances make it unsafe to play. The event organisers reserve the right to refuse admission or remove ticket holders from the event without giving a reason. No glass is to be taken onto the beach.

Hot tips for the sun – don’t forget to: Slip (on a long sleeved T-shirt) Slap (on a broad brimmed hat) and Slop (on some sun cream) For your own safety and for the safety of others please stay away from the horses.


Sandbanks offers the ‘beach wheelchair scheme’. Disabled spectators with special requirements are asked to email Sandpolo to discuss their needs.


Dogs are banned from the beach completely at the time of the event.
