Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 7 April 2010

Cable Beach in Broome is to host one of Australias only beach polo events on Sunday, 23 May 2010.

 Paspaley Beach Polo 2010 will see Australias top professional polo players competing for the Paspaley Cup against the spectacular backdrop of Australias Kimberley coast.

The event is the initiative of Marilynne Paspaley AM, Founder of Pinctada Hotels & Resorts, and Janek Gazecki of Polo Enterprises Australia who launched Australias Polo in the City series.

Janek Gazecki said Paspaley Beach Polo heralds an exciting new era for Australian polo as iconic Cable Beach joins only a handful of exotic locations around the world to host beach polo - Miami in the USA, Poole in the UK, Dubai in the UAE and Goa in India.

Beach polo tournaments are rare because they require a specific mix of sand consistency, tidal considerations and beach gradient - Cable Beach has it all, along with sweeping sands, turquoise waters and the distinctive red pindan earth of the Kimberley, he said. Its the perfect location to stage this unique sporting spectacle, which will see our top polo players, headed by Australian captain Glen Gilmore, in action on the Kimberley sand.

The event is free for the general public to enjoy from the sand dunes of Cable Beach while major sponsor Pinctada Hotels & Resorts together with naming rights sponsor Paspaley will host a VIP marquee on the sand.
