On Saturday, 18. and Sunday, 19. May 2013 there will be the yearly ‘Pinkster Polo’ (Whitsun polo) at ‘Landgoed Eeckenrhoode’ (Eeckenrhoode estate) in Waalre. At this event, eight international polo teams and about 160 horses will show their skills on a polo field as big as five football pitches! Besides the polo tournament, there is a variety of things to see and do for visitors.
On Saturday between 16.00 and 21.00 hrs, there will be the Business Picknick where you can entertain your business guests in an informal way, or enjoy a good old-fashioned day out with your family and friends. You can put together your own picnic basket at the buffet. Lovely tapas and appetizers, completed with soft drinks, Swinckels beer, and wine. At dinner time, the famous authentic Argentinian ‘Asado’ will be served.
On Sunday the estate is open to the public. Neighbors, equestrian sports lovers, entrepreneurs, media, sightseers and bon vivants come to Waalre in large numbers and praise the special sport and casual atmosphere. We welcome you from 12.00 until 19.00 hrs to take a seat on the straw bales or the lounge furniture on the terrace to enjoy the polo matches. Various fresh drinks and snacks are for sale in the catering pavilions.
