The prestigious 2017 Henley Royal Regatta takes place from the 28th June to the 2nd July and although its sporting content may not immediately spring to mind this event is as important to athletes as any other competition.
There’s silverware on offer which the calibre of Sir Steve Redgrave and Sir Matthew Pinsent have competed for.
The first Henley Regatta was staged in 1839 and it received royal patronage in 1851 thanks to Prince Albert, Prince Consort of Queen Victoria.
The regatta inspires images of socialising under the quintessential English summer sun with a glass of Pimms or champagne but the focus for many visitors is the opportunity to see international Olympian champions competing with their clubs.
Races are over 2112 metres which is unusual, the normal distance is 2000 metres in competition and the races comprise two teams. Over the five days teams are knocked out to establish the winners.
If football, rugby or motorsport seem a little too brutal for you then this is an event in which elegant splendour meets sportsmanship.
Sports events companies London and corporate sports events specialists have tailored hospitality packages to exceed expectation. They offer the client the best possible experiences alongside the Thames.
The 2000 metre terrain becomes the host of marquees which are ideal for corporate hospitality and sports events hospitality for enthusiasts and competitors, sponsors, engineers and associates.
There are a myriad of sports events hospitality packages on offer from professional firms,
Here are a couple of examples:
The Riverside Enclosure returns in 2017 as one of the most sought after sports events hospitality spaces of the summer.
It boasts a view over Temple Island and rowing can be enjoyed from this majestic spot.
Private tables and suites are available in lined marquees from sports events companies London and throughout the country.
A jazz band entertains throughout the day with the diversion of a close up magician.
Plus, as another iconic summer sports event is being played at Wimbledon there are TV screens so that tennis matches can be monitored throughout the five days of the Henley Regatta.
Refreshments are plentiful:
- Champagne and Pimms reception.
- Morning coffee and patisserie.
