Tickets for Newcastle’s inaugural Polo Classic on September 29 go on sale today. 

The Foreshore Park event caters for families as well as those looking for a VIP experience.

“We have made the ticket prices affordable so people can bring their family and friends and experience a sporting event that they may have never been exposed to,” event executive producer Wayne Boyce said.

The hill at the eastern end of Foreshore Park will be a dedicated family picnic area where people can view the game and enjoy harbour views, live entertainment, a polo bar and food stalls. General admission tickets are $50 per adult; $75 for families. Go online to www.poloclassic.com.au to book.

The “exclusive” areas will include the Chukka Polo Club, the VIP Polo Lounge and the Corporate Polo.
