21st Annual Asia Cup Polo International Day Celebrations

Winfield Row(UK)- The 21st annual Asia Cup Polo International Day was hosted at the private Winkfield Park Polo Club from July 1st to 3rd.

Day 1: Corporate day

Friday 1st July 2021 saw the inaugural Asia Cup Polo corporate day and what an event it turned out
to be !
Despite a thunderstorm at 10am, the weather Gods were shining down on our guests as they
arrived to a wonderful welcome drink generously sponsored by Laiba Cocktails
(www.laibabeverages.com)
MC for the day was former England cricket captain Chris Cowdrey who got things underway with a
great game of Heads & Tails where the prize of a bottle of Champagne was kindly donated by
Jacquart.
We also had an amazing luxury hamper donated by Renee Benatar (www.hampersbazaar.com)


A surprise for all guests as the sous chef and one of the waiters turned out to actually be opera
singers who got everyone up on their feet especially to their finale ‘I Love You Baby !’ This was
topped by a great opera song from Rebecca Lodge-Birkabaek!


Chakra provided a delicious three-course meal at the end of which guests were entertained by a
fashion show from Samira Ebrahimi who flew in all the way from Iran for this. Sir Frost provided the
other fashion show though he had a shorter journey from London !


The auction for the Kidney Fund (www.kidneyfund.org.uk) went very well including an amazing
amount raised for a very rare Louis Vuitton bag very generously donated by Francois from Monaco.

Once lunch has finished, guests came out to watch two great games of polo.


In the first match we had the Neo Tech team facing off against the High Net Connect team who had a
great vocal support from all their members. High Net Connect’s professionals were Ed Morris-Lowe
and Adolfo Casabal whilst the Neo Tech team had Winkfield Park’s own Josh Clover and former
England captain Henry Brett (a stalwart of the Asia Cup). Neo Tech ran out the winners 6-4 to claim
the victory.


In the International Match, GlobeInvest Ventures (our corporate day co-sponsors) has Indian
internationals Arjun Badal Singh and Asia Cup veteran Abhimanyu Pathak. Global Asset Portfolio (our
other co-sponsors) fought very hard throughout the match to come out on top 7-5 in an a great
match.


Once the prize ceremony had taken place, the Gypsy Kings-style band then got the after-party started
before resident DJ Ivan really got people dancing. However, the best part was still to come with Soul
Diva Kym Mazelle rocking the Asia Cup!


Many thanks to Steve and his team at GAP (www.globalassetportfolio.com) and Tony & Lolly and their
team at GIVL (www.globeinvestventures.com) for their co-sponsorship of the corporate day.
We would also like to thank Liz and her members at High Net Connect (www.highnetconnect.co.uk)

Also thanks to Adam and Lauren at Loyalty Co (www.theloyaltyco.app) for their player of the match
