    Survivor guide: Going to the polo


    The summer is here and what better way to usher in the warm weather than with a trip to the polo? A quintessentially British day out, polo is incredibly popular during the warmer months and it represents a chance to dress up, have fun and enjoy some adrenalin-pumping action.

    If you’re planning a day out at the polo in the coming weeks, here are some tips to help you avoid slips, trips and falls and ensure you enjoy a memorable day for all the right reasons:

    What to wear to the polo

    Polo is often associated with affluence and most people like to really make an effort and don their glad rags. The usual dress code is dresses or skirts and tops for ladies and suits or smart trousers and a shirt for gents. It is worth remembering that the British weather can be unpredictable and you can’t usually rely on the sun shining from dawn until dusk, so take an overcoat or jacket with you and try to go for comfortable, well-fitting footwear; the ground may get muddy and slippery, so take care to avoid slips and trips.

    If you are planning to wear heels, but you think you may start suffering part way through the afternoon, take a pair of flat sandals with you so that you can change and relieve your feet.

    Where to stand

    Polo is incredibly fast and exciting, but it can be dangerous, so make sure you steer clear of the action and keep to the designated spectator areas. Although it can be tempting to try and get close to the horses and stroke them, it’s worth noting that they can be unpredictable and they may not always be quite as friendly as they appear.

    Pay attention to signs and directions and keep behind the fences and barriers; this will help reduce your risk of suffering an accident in a public place.

    Claiming for an accident at the polo

    If you are involved in an accident at the polo or you have been injured in a public place through no fault of your own, you may wish to consider claiming public liability compensation.

    Compensation is provided to those who have suffered an illness or injury as a result of an accident or incident which was not their fault; if you have proof that you sustained injuries in a public place or you were involved in a public place accident, you should call Accident Advice Helpline on Freephone number, 0800 689 0500, for expert no-win no-fee** advice.
