Tips for enjoying your day at the Polo Invitational

1. What to wear
Being an outdoor sport, it's obviously best to dress according to the weather. Spectators at polo wear everything from jeans to a blazer and tie – it's very difficult to be under or overdressed, however visitors tend to dress up a bit more. Don’t forget to wear flat shoes if you want to tread in the divots at half-time.

2. Viewing
Nine times out of ten, the action takes place on the opposite side of the field! If you have binoculars they can be useful to pick up all the action. The commentator will help explain the rules and give you background on the players. Programmes will be given out by the parking stewards on arrival.

3. Half-time
At half-time spectators are invited to help tread in the divots made by the ponies. It not only helps the players (and grounds team!), but is a great way to meet people and see some of the players and ponies up close.
