1. Dress tip one: Remember, just like the races, you’ll be spending hours on your feet, quite often on grass, so if you’re not a heels girl, go for a wedge and make sure they’re not too high. Try and wear them a few times before the event, to make sure they don’t pinch or blister!
2. And, here's my other make-your-day-better dressing tip: a little cross-body bag is crucial for the polo because it means you can be hands-free and won’t have to worry about misplacing your belongings.
3. The first thing you need to know about the game, when you get there, is that polo involves two teams of four players. A full-size field is 300 yards (274m) long and 160 yards (146m) wide. Polo teams change direction after each goal in order to compensate for field and wind conditions.
4. Chukka whaaaa? A period of play in a polo game is called a chukka. Usually, each chukka is about 7 minutes long. I take this as a great opportunity to head to the bar for another glass of bubbles or some water to rehydrate!
5. There are eight countries competing in the tournament, including Australia. So make sure you head to the opening day on October 21 to see Australia beat Spain (hopefully)! Just make sure you have your girls by your side to cheer them on!
