An exciting new partnership between Coldstream Equestrian and Women in Polo (WIP) has just been confirmed, as polo gears up to return this summer.
The elite equestrian performance clothing brand will support the WIP 12-Goal League, with tournaments taking place at polo clubs across the country from the end of May through to the finale at Cirencester in early September. Members of the winning team and the MVP at each tournament will be presented with luxury Coldstream items.
WIP started with a desire to see progression in womens' polo and over the last five years has made great steps in establishing more opportunities for women in polo, from supporting grass roots players through to starting the first UK Ladies League, with many more projects in between. The organisation was started and is currently run by mother and daughter duo Sarah Wood and Georgie Gregory. WIP UK has slowly grown to become one of the leading organisations for women's polo.
“We are thrilled to be working in Partnership with Coldstream Equestrian and their fantastic clothing ranges. We are gearing up for our busiest ladies league yet and to have a sponsor to provide our lady players with amazing and functional performance wear prizes is really exciting. We can't wait to see you all on the pitch!” said Georgie.
Coldstream Equestrian have also appointed Olivia Lamphee as its polo ambassador. A talented player and HPA accredited coach, Olivia runs polo school OKL Polo & Equestrian from her Cirencester base, and is a welcome addition to the pool of talented equestrians making up Team Coldstream riders.
“I am really excited to be working with Coldstream Equestrian. I love riding in their Lennel Base Layers and Kilham breeches, the materials are perfect for active sport; breathable, stretchy and non-restrictive, allowing me to perform at my best. The range of Coldstream gilets and lightweight jackets are also ideal for layering up at home, on the pitch, after chukkas or in the clubhouse” said Olivia.
“We are delighted to be joining forces with Olivia and Women in Polo, it is set to be an exciting season ahead and we are looking forward to seeing our performance wear out on the pitch!” said Laura Clegg, Coldstream Brand Manager.
