Beaufort Polo Club welcomes Whatley Manor as new sponsors for 2018

Whatley Manor Hotel and Spa are coming on board with the Beaufort Polo Club for the 2018 polo season as Signboard sponsors of the Club. These signs will be present on the Club’s main grounds, including the Number 1 ground, which is the site of high quality polo throughout the UK polo season such as the Gloucestershire Festival of Polo. The relationship between Whatley the Beaufort Polo Club will extend beyond the field, as they work together to provide excellent experiences to their respective clients, including promoting Polo Experiences that offer those who may have not played polo a chance to give it a go with BPC’s HPA accredited coaches. Whatley’s Aquarias Spa membership will also be enhanced by the partnership as members will have the opportunity of attending matches during the season. Coaching has been at the heart of the Beaufort Polo Club since its revival by the Tomlinson family in 1989 and continues to be so to this day. Whatley Manor will also be providing generous prizes for Charity Matches and tournaments for which the Club is grateful. Sue Williams, general manager of Whatley Manor comments “The highly regarded Beaufort Polo Club is practically our neighbour & we should be working with them to enhance the guest experience. As well, with our spa membership becoming much more social it was a natural decision to become sponsors”
