Pamper tent adds touch of luxury
"A TOUCH of luxury" will be added to this year's Warwick Cup.
Now, less than two weeks away, female punters are being urged to secure tickets to the trackside marquee to have the chance to be pampered.
Spicers Canopy and Spicers Peak - one of the main sponsors for the Warwick Cup - has lined up two massage therapists from Spa Anise to attend to sore backs in the marquee.
Warwick Turf Club committee member Warwick Fraser said the pamper tent was something the club had been trying to organise for some time.
"It will be nice for the girls to be pampered," he said.
"We've wanted to have a glamour tent and these guys, who are known for their luxury, have been good enough to come on board."
The massage therapists will work all day for female guests inside the marquee. Bookings aren't necessary as they will work on a first come, first served program.
Spicer's Canopy general manager Angela Mosedale said Spicer's was excited to sponsor such an esteemed event.
"We're bringing spa to all our products and we want to be involved in the local community," she said.
"It seemed the perfect opportunity to offer our support."
Spicers Peak Lodge and Spicers Canopy has offered two nights of luxury accommodation, including all meals and beverages, to one lucky visitor to www.warwickcup.com.au.
The prize package is worth $2355 and anyone who refers a friend online will go into the draw to win.
Mr Fraser said tickets for the cup were selling well and there was still a limited number for the marquee.
"We're expecting about 800 people in the marquee and about 4500 people on the day," he said.
"We need to start getting numbers for the marquee by the end of this week, so people have until then to purchase their tickets."
General admission tickets will be sold on the day for $20.
Pre-purchased tickets for the marquee are $35, which include exclusive access to a full service bar, amenities and betting facilities by the track. Lunch can also be purchased for marquee guests for $75, and will be prepared by the Warwick Polocrosse Club.
