The 2020 Portsea Polo celebrates its 20th birthday with opulence and sophistication.

The 2020 Portsea Polo celebrated its 20th birthday, once again at Point Nepean National Park, with an atmosphere that was notably fashionable and fun, however, the talk of the day was about Australia’s ongoing bush fire crisis. Portsea Polo showed its support for those impacted by the fires and for the heroes who are fighting them, pledging $100 per goal scored throughout the tournament to the Country Fire Authority (CFA).

Dressing for the Polo this year was a little challenging, especially for the ladies given the wind that was present throughout the day with windswept hair and hats coming off annoying many, however true to class our ladies and gentlemen presented their best ‘Preppy’, looks with champagne sipping and divot stomping fun around opulent sidetrack marquees.

As usual, trendsetters were present, daring to stand out from the rest of the crowd with many setting new trends, ‘Polo Style’ of course!

The latest resurgence is the classic polo shirt thanks to brands like Polo Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger who recently visited Melbourne with the lad’s combing tailored shorts, chino’s and loafers to complete their Polo looks.

Some of Australia’s most well-known faces lapped up the excitement of the Portsea Polo. The Forever New marquee played host to Aisha Dee, Olivia Rogers, Michelle Battersby, and Ruby Brownless, while Polo Club Point Nepean welcomed Julie Bishop, Michelle Payne, Brooke Hogan, and Josh Gibson. The new Beach Club precinct played host to enthusiastic eventgoers, including Brittney Cutts and Lauren Ericson who enjoyed the hospitality in the VIP Beach Club.

As per previous years, Portsea Polo continued to support its designated charity partner, The Alfred Foundation who was selling Portsea Polo Anniversary Caps with proceeds supporting critical care at The Alfred Foundation.

At the close of play, Portsea Polo and its partners announced they had raised $36,500.00 for the Country Fire Authority with attendee donations still to be counted.
