Polo Times Out This Week!

March issue of Polo Times

The March issue of Polo Times will be out later this week. The latest issue to arrive on your doorstep, or in one of our retail outlets in Cowdray, Berkshire or London, is packed full of polo delights. As Official Media Partners to the Snow Polo World Cup in St. Moritz, this issue includes an extensive match report, plus all the social from behind the scenes and we find out more about St. Moritz superstar, Dario Musso in our Passions pages. Slightly closer to home, we bring you a bumper RCBPC round-up with reports from the HPA National Club Championships, Winter Victor Ludorum 5-8 Goal plus the FCT Invitational Challenge Trophy. As if that wasn’t enough reports for you, we’ve also included The Paul Sweeney Memorial at Ash Farm plus the Images of Polo Winter Victor Ludorum at AEPC, Hickstead. 

Plus, Richenda Hine catches up with fourth generation polo player Sebastian Dawnay, to find out just what makes him tick and we hear from the Row For James team, of Harry Wentworth-Stanley, Rory Buchanan, Toby Fenwicke-Clennell and Sam Greenly, about their epic rowing adventure in The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge for a truly worthwhile cause, The James Wentworth-Stanley Memorial Fund.

No March issue of Polo Times would be complete without a round-up of events from the SUPA University Winter Nationals at Rugby Polo Club – another year and another record broken, as a staggering 165 teams across 35 universities competed. 

Our Knowledge section is bursting to the brim with a plethora of features, vet Gethin Maddocks provides valuable insights into frog maintenance, Lorna Edgar gives her hottest tips on spring nutrition, whilst Andrews Bowen provide insight into the cutting-edge technology used in their all-weather surfaces. 

On top of all this, as the Home Office decision on visas and the subsequent unfolding drama has had many writing off the 2017 season before it has already started, we caught-up with some clubs, both arena and outdoor, big and smaller, to find out what they think at the cusp of one of the most debated about seasons on record in our Club Catch-Up. 

Plus this issue includes all our usual Club, Women’s and Youth news from both home and abroad, as well as Bit Focus, Pony Power pages, Letters, Big Picture and Sidelines.

Arena Gold Cup Update

Double Loss for K-Law Imperial

The Arena Gold Cup is in full swing at The Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club ahead of the Finals scheduled for Saturday 25 February. Post-Final, the Club is hosting a Casino Evening and After Party, click here fore more details. The qualifiers for the Final began last week on Friday 17 February, with a 21-15 win for SUPA Polo over K-Law Imperial. SUPA Polo had honed their teamwork in an exhibition match against The Knights of Middle England at the SUPA University Winter Nationals at Rugby Polo Club on the weekend of 9 – 12 February. However, Friday’s victory came as a surprise for some as the lowest handicapped team of the tournament managed to defeat ‘The Prof’ Chris Hyde, who holds a mighty 10 goal arena handicap and was fresh from Cartier’s victory in the Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz at the end of January.

The following day, Saturday 19 February, saw two matches, with Emlor defeating Sifani at 12pm with a close score of 22-23, whilst next-up K-Law Imperial continued their losing streak, suffering a 23-16 defeat at the hands of Regal Warriors.

The action continues tomorrow, Tuesday 21 February, with the last matches of the league stages as the teams fight for their places in the Semi Finals, the fixtures are as follows:

SUPA Polo vs Regal Warriors at 11am

Sifani vs Four Quarters at 12.20pm 

Picazo Polo Stud vs Emlor at 2pm


Arena Gold Cup Teams:

SUPA Polo (13): Sebastian Hancock (3), Robin Ormerod (4) & Harold Hodges (6)

K-Law Imperial (15): Celio Garcera (1), Royston Prisk (4) & Chris Hyde (10)
