Whispering Angel Win in Sandbanks

Sold out event, Indian Summer, beach polo & after-parties

Over the weekend 17 – 18 September, The British Beach Polo Championships 2021 (Sandpolo) hosted their 14th event. Due to Covid, the event was played later in the season than usual, but the weather gods were smiling as the sell-out crowds enjoyed the Indian Summer sunshine on Sandbanks Blue Flag Beach. This year was the inaugural year for the U.S. Polo Assn. as apparel partner for the event in collaboration with U.K. licensing partner Brand Machine Group. Both teams were evenly matched, but it was the success of the strong team work from team Whispering Angel (Chris Gregory, Hazel Jackson & Adolfo Casabal) that took the British Beach Championships 2021 title with a 19-14 victory against Team Lightening Commercial Finance (Garrie Renucci, Ollie Cork & Nick Van Open). Most Valuable Player went to Adolfo Casabal who also won the spectacular charity race with polo pony racing across the sand against a 4x4.
The after-parties, always a big highlight at the event, did not disappoint and the celebratory mood was heightened after a year away. Party goers enjoyed the beach backdrop at Friday’s Boogie on the beach and there was an electric atmosphere at Saturday’s Gold closing party. 
Sandpolo Director, Johnny Wheeler said, “It is nothing short of a miracle that all of the infrastructure supplies event staff, security and players delivered this perfect event given the initial uncertainty we always had – we never quite knew we could pull it off until the last minute but it all came together. A perfect finale to the Summer season”. 
The British Beach Polo Championships have confirmed that the event will back to the original July dates next year 8 – 9 July 2022.
