POLO 101 – On the Day
Please not the Heineken Urban Polo is a licensed R18 event, therefore no children or anyone under 18 years of age will be permitted onto the event site. Please remember to bring ID as you may be asked for it by security upon entering the grounds.
Summer casual with clean looks and smart detailing is the order of the day.
Our stylists suggest: “For the ladies flowing dresses and wedges or sandals are the norm (heels best left at home)…a summer hat or accessory can be an excellent way to finish off an outfit. For the gents a tailored shirt matched with dress shorts or chinos, together with loafers or boat shoes achieves a polished yet casual look for the day. Sunglasses are a must-have accessory for a sunny day !

THE PLAYERS AND TEAMS

We are fortunate enough to be welcoming some of the best international stars from the world of polo. These polo stars will be participating in the action at each of the event locations.
Heineken Urban Polo is a NZPA sanctioned series of events and adheres to all New Zealand Polo guidelines.
In the lead up to the two events we will be releasing news of the world class players competing along with a short bio on each of the players so you know exactly who you’ll be lucky enough to see on the day.
