Leamington Spa jewellers and watch retailer Tustains Jewellers will be the official sponsors of the prestigious Dallas Burston Polo club in Warwickshire this year.
Tustains will be presenting the Emily Rose Bowl trophy as well as Tissot watch prizes to the winners of the Ladies 10 Goal Polo tournament during Polo in the Park day on Sunday 13 September.
The established event attracts up to five thousand people each year to the Stoneythorpe estate in Southam.
Tom Milner, director at Tustains, said: “Last year we ran a very well received series of ‘local sporting hero awards’ in association with our local paper, the Leamington Courier and Tissot watches, and we’re also long-term official sponsors for the local real tennis and football clubs.
“As keen sportsmen ourselves, both Joe [brother and fellow director Joe Milner] and I enjoy making a contribution to the local sporting community. It’s the first time we’ve worked in partnership with a Polo club and we’re looking forward to developing closer ties through the social membership projects with the Polo club in the next months and years.”
Ella Cloake, the club’s marketing and events co-ordinator, added: “Dallas Burston are looking forward to working with all our new local sponsors and we’re particularly excited to be giving a higher profile to women’s polo. Polo is a mixed sport, but we are aiming to celebrate the achievements of the talented women’s teams which currently receive a lower profile but are just as exciting to watch.”
Tustains will be giving the Rose Bowl trophy a make-over before it is presented this year and will also provide the winning players with Tissot ladies watches.
