Win free tickets to Polo in the Park at Hurlingham Park

Hammersmith & Fulham residents can apply for free tickets to Chesterton’s Polo in the Park on 7th-9th June at Hurlingham Park – apply by midday on Friday, 3th May. Hammersmith & Fulham residents can apply for free tickets to Chesterton’s Polo in the Park on 7th-9th June at Hurlingham Park in a ballot dedicated to locals. The council has teamed up with the equestrian event organisers to provide 2,000 free tickets across the three-day festival from Friday, 7th June, to Sunday, 9th June, at Hurlingham Park in Fulham.

With polo teams from six countries across the world competing in the fast-paced games, as well as children’s activities, a food market and shopping village, there’s a packed programme.

Apply to the ballot before midday on Friday, 3rd May, to be in with a chance of securing free tickets.

The action-packed sport sees teams of four horses – the ultra fit polo ponies – and their riders compete to score goals using a long-handled mallet and ball on a grass pitch. Teams from London, New York, Dubai, Zurich, Buenos Aires and Riyadh are pitted against each other in this year’s polo extravaganza.

Proceeds from the event financially supports local children’s charity, Sands End Associated Projects in Action (SEAPIA), in providing low-cost play and childcare for children and young people aged four to 13.

Children can get in on the fun during a dedicated family day on the Sunday, with a pitch invasion transforming the polo field into a huge play zone. Expect games including a space hopper steeplechase, capture the flag, tug of war, and a strawberry bootlace race, while Minninnooka Polo Club will teach youngsters how to play polo.

Local sports clubs Chelsea Football Club and Hammersmith & Fulham Rugby Club will run sessions for children to hone their skills or learn something new. And the Little Hooves Kids Club will also be open all day, hosting storytelling, bouncy castles, face-painting and soft play.

Meanwhile, a food festival features street food including New Orleans and Mexican bites, alongside speciality pizza, hot dogs, burgers, doughnuts, poke and seafood. Live music, bars and shopping will bring the summer vibe to the event, with polo games running from around 2pm each day.
