IF you go down to the beach on Sunday you might see an unusual sight.

Members of the White Rose Polo Club will begin their preparations for the 2011 season this weekend with training sessions on Bridlington’s South Beach.

The club is planning on playing a few chukkas of polo on the beach between 1pm and 3pm on Sundays, February 6, 13 and 20 and Sundays, March 6, 13 and 27.

Club member Joan Gough said: “We usually head to Bridlington beach at this time of year. It’s the perfect way to prepare both ponies and players for the start of the new summer season in April. We often get quite a few people coming along to watch and chat to players.”
