Initiated by the owners of Portsea Polo, PoloX is a new and unique game format where three players per side are opposed, a larger polo ball is used, and the pace is captivatingly fast. The dulcet tones of Seven Network's Hamish McLachlan will commentate the day's play. Flinders Polo is made possible by a slew of incredible supporters including naming rights sponsor and leading fashion label Country Road, and major partners Gurner, Provincial Home Living, RT Edgar Mornington Peninsula, Brighton Land Rover, and St Andrews Beach Brewery. Credited with creating the first vintage 'brut' style of Champagne in 1874, Pommery are a proud associate partner.
