This year's Bri­tish Polo Day in China returns to Bei­jing's Tang Polo Club on Septem­ber 3. Pre­sented by RJI Cap­i­tal and hosted by Shi­lai Liu, one of China's most recog­nis­able play­ers and owner of Tang Polo Club, the one-day event show­cases the best of Bri­tish her­itage through polo and en­ter­tain­ment.

Start­ing from mid­day, ar­riv­ing guests will be of­fered a drink at the Cham­pagne Tait­tinger re­cep­tion. Af­ter that, they will be ush­ered to the venue's bal­cony for a three-course meal pre­pared by the chefs from NUO Ho­tel Bei­jing. Dur­ing lunch, a Bromp­ton bi­cy­cle com­pe­ti­tion will take place at the same time to keep guests well en­ter­tained through­out.

Once the bi­cy­cles are safely folded away, the horses will be brought on to the pitch for the of­fi­cial open­ing cer­e­mony, led by RJI Cap­i­tal and other par­tic­i­pat­ing teams. The Tang Polo Club, RJI Cap­i­tal and NUO Bri­tish Schools teams then go on to play against each other dur­ing the day for the chance to pick up one of the Bri­tish sil­ver­ware tro­phies.

The Bri­tish Polo Day in China is the fourth event of the Global Se­ries, which takes place in 10 dif­fer­ent coun­tries around the globe, in­clud­ing Abu Dhabi, Aus­tralia, Ger­many, In­dia, Mex­ico and Morocco. Polo is, nat­u­rally, the main high­light but the high­pro­file event also of­fers a great op­por­tu­nity to brush shoul­ders with the city's elite and prominent busi­ness lead­ers.

WHEN: Septem­ber 10 to 18 WHERE: Grand Palais, Paris
