Mahwah, New Jersey (PRWEB) April 18, 2013
The world leader in high-end sport utility vehicles Land Rover North America, today announced that they will be the Official Team Sponsor of the 2013 Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup, to be held at the Greenwich Polo Club in Greenwich, Connecticut, United States on Wednesday, May, 15 2013.
In honor of this exciting event and to support and promote “The Sport of Kings”, Crooked Brook is offering a 15% discount on all custom polo jerseys from 4/18 to 4/25/2013 with the promo code “4252013”.
This is the first time the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup will be played in the United States and the third year Royal Salute will partner with Sentebale, the charity founded in 2006 by Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso in memory of their mothers. Sentebale means ‘forget-me-not’ in Sesotho, the language spoken in Lesotho and the charity works with local grassroots organizations to help some of Lesotho’s most vulnerable children get the support they need to lead healthy and productive lives.
"Land Rover has a history of supporting this event and is honored to continue its partnership with the 2013 Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup in an effort to raise resources for those in need," said Kim McCullough, Brand Vice President, Land Rover North America. "We look forward to an exciting match and are delighted to be associated with such a worthwhile cause."
Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso launched the annual polo event to raise funds and awareness for Sentebale and Prince Harry will be playing for the Sentebale Land Rover team, against Nacho Figueras, who will play for the St. Regis team.
“Polo matches are fun and a great activity for families and people of all ages,” said Donna Jones, senior design assistant at Crooked Brook where they specialize in custom polo shirts. “One of our most popular promotional apparel items is promotional polo shirts because they make great corporate gifts and are an excellent way to build brand recognition and promote a business.”
Polo (Persian: چوگان, Chōwgān), is a team sport played on horseback in which the objective is to score goals against an opposing team. Sometimes called "The Sport of Kings", it was started by Persians, and was popular in Iran until 1979, after which its popularity there declined sharply due to the Iranian Revolution. Players score by driving a small white plastic or wooden ball into the opposing team's goal using a long-handled mallet.
In the sport of polo, polo shirts are called polo jerseys. Polo shirts are also called "polos" or tennis shirts and they became so popular on golf courses, people started calling them golf shirts. Although the words "polo shirt" and "golf shirt" are used interchangeably, the term "polo shirt" is more popular.
More casual than button-front shirts and dressier than t-shirts, embroidered polo shirts are part of the uniform for many businesses. Polo shirts embroidered with a company logo given as gifts or giveaways are called promotional polo shirts and are great way to build brand awareness.

Although the most popular method of printing t-shirts is screen printing, Crooked Brook t-shirts are printed using Direct To Garment Printing (DTG) which is the process of using inkjet printers to print an image directly onto t-shirts without the use of screens like with screen printing, which requires a lot of setup e.g., creating screens for each color. In addition, DTG printing uses eco-friendly, water soluble ink, unlike some screen printing methods that layer Plastisol (a suspension of PVC particles in a plasticizer) on top of the t-shirt. The only requirement for DTG printing is for the image to be high resolution, resulting in photograph quality printing with no setup fee or minimums for custom t-shirts.
