For the first time in the history of the Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo, polo fans were treated to a high-goal 12-goal polo tournament with talented South African and international players. Shimmy Beach Club won the opening match against Team Nigus, while team Julius Bär and Veuve Clicquot drew in the riveting main game. Bentley was there to not only throw in the ball with Moet Hennessy’s marketing manager Patrick Madendjian at the start of the finale game, but to entertain guests with their magnificent vehicles during the traditional divit stomping at half time.
The Official Fashion Partners at the 2015 event –Jenni Button and Hilton Weiner - showcased their latest couture collection and quintessential looks on the catwalk, with some surprising and evocative pieces.
The Bentley car display has become a tradition at this glamourous daytime event. It provides a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the spectators who desire some serious torque. Associate Sponsor and Official Vehicle Partner, Bentley revealed their brand new Continental GT V8 for the first time in South Africa, making it to our shores only days before the big event. Other vehicles on display included the Bentley Flying Spur V8, the Mulsanne and the Continental GT.
As the day drew to a close and the sun set behind the magical pink mountains, guests strolled over to the after party, hosted by Shimmy Beach Club, where they danced the night away.
Veuve Clicquot founded the Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo in 2011 in Cape Town at the magnificent Val de Vie Polo estate, supporting the growing love for the sport in the city. Drawing inspiration from polo's global presence, with its rich culture and heritage, Veuve Clicquot continues to bolster this sport in South Africa and around the world. Spectators gather to enjoy polo matches and take part in elaborate and glamorous afternoons celebrating the game. More than any other sport, polo is best savored live, steeped in tradition and perpetuated by Veuve Clicquot.
