Publications UK has recently acquired the rights to publish the Cartier Queen’s Cup programme from Guards Polo Club.
This leading publisher is no stranger to polo, the oldest team sport in the world, as it has published the Guards Polo Club Yearbook for the past three years and has just put the 2012 edition to press. In addition, the London-based publisher also produces the Club’s luxury lifestyle magazine, Ten Goal, aimed at those who support and play polo at the highest level.
Managing Director of Publications UK, Stewart Lee, said: “We are delighted that Guards Polo Club is continuing to work with us on its range of polo publications. We first became involved with the Queen’s Cup programmes in the tournament’s 50th anniversary year, creating an elegant souvenir issue in 2010 to mark five decades of world class sport. With Cartier sponsoring this prestigious tournament from this year, my team at Publications UK, working closely with the editorial team at Guards Polo Club, will ensure that the 2012 Cartier Queen’s Cup programme is a true reflection of the quality and depth of talent within the competition and will become a collector’s item for polo fans around the world.”
Diana Butler, Communications Director of Guards Polo Club and Editor of Guards Polo Club’s publications, which include the lifestyle magazine Ten Goal and the Cartier Queen’s Cup programme, said: “Publications UK has worked tirelessly with Guards Polo Club over the past three years to develop prestigious publications that have successfully delivered to our members and our advertisers. We are delighted that we are able to extend our relationship with Publications UK to include the first Cartier Queen’s Cup programme.”
The Cartier Queen’s Cup programme will be published on Saturday 9 June 2012 to coincide with the Cartier Queen’s Cup quarter-finals at Guards Polo Club. This leading polo competition includes the world’s greatest players in its team lists and every game is a superb example of the power and the passion of player and pony, in perfect harmony, at 40mph.
