Now in its seventh year, Polo in the Park has become one of London's great summer outdoors events. Aimed at bringing polo to the people, the three-day World Series event showcases a more accessible version of the sport, mirroring the effect Twenty20 has had on cricket. Teams of three a side from cities around the world take part, with City AM as London's team, Mandarin Oriental for Beijing, IG for Sydney and Air Europa for Buenos Aires. There's usually also a steady flow of celebrities (Jodie Kidd) and royalty (Princess Beatrice), not to mention medieval jousting and an array of bars, shops and food stalls. Red or salmon pink trousers are a must.
In the good old days, Hurlingham Park was used for regular football and rugby matches as well as athletics events. Located next to the swanky Hurlingham Club in a leafy riverside location in Fulham, Hurlingham Park once had a seated capacity of around 2,500 people until the stands were torn down in 2002.
