BBC One - Inside Out

BBC Inside Out is a regional current affairs programme, broadcast weekly during the autumn, winter and spring. Inside Out pride themselves on bringing surprising stories from familiar places! Inside Out approached Beverley Polo Club as part of their new story of filming celebrities learning a new sport.

With Beverley Polo Club as the location and polo being the sport, the celebrity was Johnny Nelson, the undefeated WBO Crusierweight Boxing Champion of the World. The programme highlighted that polo is easily accessible at Beverley Polo Club and you don't need to have horse experience to take up the sport.

Channel 4 - Faking It

Channel 4 Faking It is a transformational battle against the odds. A faker is plucked from their natural habitat and given four weeks to master a skill well enough to fool a group of expert judges. Sean McClarron, a local Yorkshireman and new member to Beverley Polo Club, took on the challenge of faking it to appear as an experienced Polo Player.

ITV - Ladette to Lady

ITV ITV series, Ladette to Lady, filmed on location at Beverley Polo Club. The competing ladettes became guests at the club's annual corporate hospitality event, The Nations Cup; an international polo tournament, attracting luxury brand sponsorship and a host of celebrities. The series follows the transformation of some of Britain's most extreme binge drinking, sexually shameless, anti-social rebels into respectable ladies at Eggleston Hall Finishing School.
