Sandbanks beach polo 2009
Back for a second year, Sandbanks will again host the British Beach Polo Championships this summer.
Sandbanks beach will again in 2009 will be the host for the British Beach Polo Championships being held as a two day event on the exclusive Sandbanks Poole peninsula in July 2009.
Previously only ever been seen in the more exotic locations of Miami and Dubai, the beach polo event - a variation of arena polo - was a first for both Dorset and the UK upon its arrival in July 2008.
It's now back for its second year, and organisers say they've agreed a five year term, meaning the event will continue annually on Sandbanks up to 2014.
Six teams of top international riders and horses will compete in the tournament in front of crowds of up to 2,000 people and on a specially-prepared area of Sandbanks beach.
