Motorpoint injects additional horsepower into Polo at the Manor

11 May 2018 Press Release

Motorpoint has once again partnered with Celtic Manor Resort to support its hugely popular Polo at the Manor event next month

“As the UK’s leading car supermarket, Motorpoint makes customer service a priority and a day at the polo is a perfect way to bring people together to enjoy themselves and build relationships”

The UK’s leading car supermarket, which has a branch a short drive from Celtic Manor Resort, will add horsepower of a different kind after continuing to support the Polo at the Manor for a second time on Saturday, June 16, 2018. 

The one day event will see international players compete in a series of professional, fast-paced polo matches on a specially created polo field next to the Twenty Ten Ryder Cup golf course at Celtic Manor Resort. Launched in 2011, Manor at the Polo has established itself as one of the region’s foremost social events, with guests enjoying sipping champagne and cocktails whilst indulging in a spot of celebrity-spotting. Over 5,000 visitors are expected on the day.

Chris Brown General Manager at Motorpoint Newport, said: “We had a wonderful day at last summer’s Polo at the Manor so Motorpoint and are delighted to confirm our title sponsorship of the event again this June. 

“This event gives us a wonderful opportunity to promote our brand and strengthen our links with the local community. As the UK’s leading car supermarket, Motorpoint makes customer service a priority and a day at the polo is a perfect way to bring people together to enjoy themselves and build relationships. The Celtic Manor Resort has a track record for putting on brilliant sporting events and first-class hospitality, and we look forward to another day to remember this June.”

Gemma Smith, Celtic Manor Resort Sponsorship and Hospitality Manager, added:  “We are delighted that Motorpoint has renewed its support for Polo at the Manor for a second year. We established a fantastic partnership in 2017 and it is great to align our brand and event with such a prestigious national company once again.

“Polo at the Manor has grown into a very popular fixture on the social and sporting calendar in South Wales and it is always pleasing to see sponsors return after seeing the value of being involved in our events. We look forward to another special occasion on 16th June and another sell-out success on the polo field.”

Throughout the day guests will be entertained by live music before, between and after matches, and the Polo Village will also include retail and catering outlets. A best-dressed competition and the traditional treading of the divots will complete a glamorous day at the polo before an After-Polo Party keeps the festivities going at the Resort Hotel well into the evening.

Motorpoint opened its branch on the Queensway Meadow Industrial Estate in Newport in August 2005. Since then it has gone onto sell a low mileage, new or nearly new car to every postal code area in South Wales.
