Luxaviation hosts return of Aviation Polo Challenge
Luxaviation’s Aviation Polo Challenge made its long-awaited return to Hurtwood Park Polo Club, Surrey, on Saturday 2 September 2023, welcoming more than 200 guests from across the aviation community.
The event, which was enjoyed annually from 2011 until the pandemic, included a compelling exhibition match between Luxaviation and Castle Air.
George Galanopoulos, CEO, Luxaviation UK and head of charter sales Europe for the Luxaviation Group, says: “The event was a huge success and it was fantastic to see everyone. Our aviation community really got into the spirit of the challenge, and it was lovely to come together in this way to celebrate our passion for aviation and comradery within the industry.
“On behalf of Luxaviation, we would like to thank Textron Aviation, our event sponsor, for connecting industry leaders and galvanising the players, and also for reigniting this valued event, which has been a tradition since 2011.”
Abigail Slater, named Most Valuable Player.
The Luxaviation Polo Team celebrated a triumphant win at this year’s event, with Abigail Slater named Most Valuable Player (MVP) and Colonel, a six-year-old English Thoroughbred Gelding awarded Best Playing Pony (BPP).
The event was also in support of charity organisation Fly2Help, which is dedicated to changing lives through aviation experiences and showcasing the opportunities available to young people.
Event guests enjoyed food provided by bespoke catering service Man with a Pan and Shere-based ice cream company, Shere Delights. Music was provided by singer songwriter, Martin Bell.
