Hua Hin, Thailand – On April 6th, the majestic shores of Hua Hin will witness the grandest charity beach polo competition in the Asian region as InterContinental Hua Hin Resort hosts the “InterContinental – B.Grimm Beach Polo 2024” event.

B.Grimm, in collaboration with Proud Group, InterContinental Hua Hin Resort, and Bluport Hua Hin, will organize this continental-level polo tournament, vying for the prestigious trophy bestowed by Her Royal Highness Princess Pacharakhitiyapha Narenthorn, taking place on the shores of Hua Hin Beach. The proceeds of the event will be dedicated to the “Inspiration Project,” benefiting incarcerated individuals by providing them with opportunities for rehabilitation and sports skill development. The Beach Polo tournament stands as the largest of its kind in the region, now in its 13th consecutive year. The event will receive cooperation from various sectors, including governmental bodies, private enterprises, the Thai Equestrian Federation, the Inspiration Project, and the Prachuap Khiri Khan Province. Hua Hin, renowned for its picturesque landscapes and the allure of beachside equestrianism, will be selected as the venue, enhancing its reputation as a global tourist destination.

Proud Group’s Managing Director, Ms. Praw Powdthavee, will emphasize Hua Hin’s rise as a premier tourist destination, with exponential growth in tourism revenue surpassing 44 billion baht in 2566 and a significant influx of both domestic and international tourists, particularly from China and Korea, in subsequent years. She will reiterate Hua Hin’s strong potential as a tourism hub, especially in sports, music, arts, and gastronomy, with beach polo emerging as a flagship event.

Dr. Harald Link, Chairman of the tournament, President of B.Grimm, and Honorary President of the Thai Equestrian Federation, will highlight the significance of beach polo in showcasing Thailand’s capabilities in hosting international equestrian competitions. He will underscore the unique challenge of timing matches according to the tides, utilizing the beachfront arena post-low tide for competitions.

Apart from the thrilling polo matches, attendees will enjoy a myriad of activities, including charity auctions, culinary delights, and fashion shows. The event will commence with a vibrant parade featuring floats from various parts of Hua Hin, accentuating the city’s distinct cultural identity. The opening ceremony will also feature a procession of models riding horses, adding to the spectacle. In the closing ceremony, attendees will be treated to a concert by the Royal Bangkok Symphony Orchestra, led by Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana, accompanied by the Fivera band, concluding the event on a high note of celebration and cultural exchange.

With each passing year, the InterContinental – B.Grimm Beach Polo continues to elevate Hua Hin’s global profile, promoting tourism and showcasing the city’s rich cultural heritage to audiences worldwide.
