Royal Ascot - Ian Bell - England Rugby

Great British Summer of Sport (Part 1)

After a fantastic start to the sporting year where Eventmasters corporate hospitality guests enjoyed one of the best RBS Six Nations in history, a fantastic Cheltenham Festival and of course the thrilling action provided by the Premier League. We now look ahead to the wonderful summer of British sport that will feature events such as the Ashes, Royal Ascot and the QBE rugby internationals.

After narrowly missing out on the 2015 RBS Six Nations title on point’s difference, Stuart Lancaster’s England side will prepare for the 2015 World Cup with two QBE Internationals against France and Ireland. England’s attacking game is really beginning to take shape with George Ford and Ben Youngs pulling the strings in the half-backs. Then in the centres Jonathan Joseph has finally started to deliver on the potential we all knew he had, he will be a major weapon come the World Cup. Lancaster and the rest of the nation will be praying that the human wrecking-ball Manu Tuilagi can overcome his injury problems in time for the QBE’s, a partnership of Tuilagi and Joseph would be a brilliant combination of brute power and guile.

With the curtain coming down on the National Hunt Racing season and attention now turns to the flat season. Champion jockey Richard Hughes has already announced he will retire at the end of the season, and he will want to go out on a high. The 2015 Royal Ascot meeting will once again be the highlight of the flat racing calendar and will attract some of the biggest stars from around the world. Legendary Irish trainer Aidan O’Brien will no doubt have a strong team of challengers for the biggest prizes and American superstar California Chrome is also set to appear. Eventmasters can offer a wide range of premier corporate hospitality packages at the 2015 Royal Ascot meeting if you are interested in attending.

Another major highlight of the summer will undoubtedly be the Ashes, where England and Australia clash in five epic test matches. England were disappointing in the recent ICC Cricket World Cup but test match cricket is a completely different proposition to the one day format. After a 5-0 drubbing at the hand of the Aussies in 2013, Alistair Cook’s side will be desperate for revenge. The conditions of the English summer will help the bowling attack which will be spearheaded by the ‘King of Swing’ Jimmy Anderson. Warwickshire batsman Ian Bell will be looking to maintain his fantastic form and could be the key man in the England batting line up. Eventmasters can provide superb corporate hospitality facilities at the fourth Investec Ashes test match at Trent Bridge.
