Beach Polo Championship

Beachpolo-2013

Thoroughbreds on the Baltic Sea beach. Hot action and splashing sand.

The scent of the big wide world and an exciting sports event is blown into the Baltic seaside resort of Sellin every year in early October. At that time of the year, the Beach Polo Championship takes place against the backdrop of Sellin pier. National and international polo teams compete to be the winner. Unlike polo games on lawn, here only two players per team fight against each other. In so-called “chukkas”, exciting short game sequences, they delight the audience with skill, speed, and splashing Baltic Sea sand. Guests enjoy 60 Argentine thoroughbred horses, an enticing presentation and an exciting social programme for free. Those who like to be even closer to the event may secure themselves a charged seat in the VIP tent.
