Robert Graham very sadly passes away

Robert very sadly passed away unexpectedly on 7 August aged 67, much loved husband of 45 years to Betsy and adored father of Vanessa.

Robert was appointed as HPA Chief Umpire in 2003 and joined the HPA Handicap Committee in 2004.
He was responsible for the introduction of professional umpires and many other changes to improve the game for spectators and players.
As a player he joined Cowdray in 1973 and reached 6 goals, playing the high goal with Greenhill Farm.
He was a great supporter of polo and many young players had the privilege of spending the winter in Argentina under his watchful eye.
