Midhurst is home to the Cowdray Park Polo Club, one of the leading polo clubs in the United Kingdom. The sport has been played here for over 100 years. Over 450 polo matches are held at the park each season. The highlight of the polo season is the annual British Open Polo Championship, for the Gold Cup, sponsored for many years by Veuve Clicquot, and now by Jaeger-LeCoultre. The Gold Cup tournament starts at the end of June and runs until the Final late in July.
The Swan Inn is ideally located in walking distance of the polo fields.
