Oxford University is a brand that sells itself. It does not need any introduction. Like every proper millennial institution (the University has been established in 1096) it has its history, rituals and clubs. As we are here to celebrate polo, we interviewed Natasha Salonen, Ball President at Oxford University Polo Club (OUPC), who organized and hosted a fairy-tale ball nothing less than at the famous Tower of London on February 23rd.
About 240 lucky ladies and gentlemen got the chance to have a private visit to the Crown Jewels, drink champagne in the White Tower and dine in the Armories.
Like in a modern Disney movie, after midnight everyone moved to a romantic cruise on the Thames, it up by the flashing city of London, with its Shard, Big Ben and House of Parliament standing tall in the skyline.
Fancy more action? Don’t miss the next Boat Race and Polo Varsity Match at Guards Polo Club, where it will be all about Oxford versus Cambridge. It’s time to pick up your blue: which side are you?
