Cheltenham return to defend SUPA Senior Schools Title

Rugby Polo Club host SUPA Senior Schools this weekend

Defending champions Cheltenham College are just one of many teams who will be taking part in the SUPA Senior Schools Championships this Sunday at Rugby Polo Club. Last year Cheltenham College’s George White and Jack and Ollie Severn took the title from Wellington College’s Karim Sheikh, Izzy McGregor and Heather Winsor, and although both sides will be returning with a revised line-up to this year’s competition they will undoubtedly, once again, be aiming for first prize. Teams from Felsted, Rugby, Stowe, John Lyon, St.Barts, Langley, Scotland, Dean Close, Tudor Hall, Harrow, Millfied and Marlborough will also be taking part.
The day’s action begins at 9am and will continue until 4pm. Polo Times wishes all those taking part the best of luck.

Piaget USPA Gold Cup kicks off tomorrow

C.V. Whitney Cup winners Orchard Hill will be aiming for second win of their season

Following an extremely successful C.V. Whitney tournament, Steve Van Andel’s Orchard Hill side will undoubtedly be returning to 26 goal competition for International Polo Club’s second high goal tournament with high expectations. The line up of Facundo Pieres, Polito Pieres and Ezequiel M. Ferrario defeated Alegria’s Julian Mannis, Hilario Ulloa, Mariano Aguerre and Sterling Flannico, in the Final of The C.V. Whitney last weekend, 16 goals to 13. Orchard Hill face Coca-Cola (Gillian Johnston, Pelon Stirling, Julio Arellano and Sugar Erskine) in the opening game of the Piaget USPA Gold Cup tomorrow at 10am while Alegria will take on Audi (Marc Ganzi, Gonzalito Pieres, Rodrigo Andrade and Freddie Mannix) at the later time of 3pm.
Tomorrow’s action will also see Valiente (Bob Jornayvaz, Alejo Taranco, Guillermo Terrera and Adolfo Cambiaso), who slightly suffered as a result of an injured Adolfo Cambiaso in The C.V. Whitney Cup, come up against Lechuza Caracas (Victor Vargas, Nico Pieres, Juan Martin Nero and Agustin Garcia Grossi) at 12pm while Las Monjitas (Camilo Bautista, Facundo Sola, Sebastian Merlos and Eduardo Novillo Astrada) and Engel & Volkers (Matias Magrini, Santi Torres, Kris Kampsen and Jared Zenni) will also be battling it out at this time.
Action returns to the field on Sunday.

Zedan secure place in Julius Bär Gold Cup Semi Finals

A win against UAE means Zedan will join Julius Bär Team by Habtoor Polo and Brin Drai in final four

Day 8 in The Julius Bär Gold Cup kicked off with a win for Abu Dhabi in their contest against Desert Palm I. Faris Al Yabhouni’s team produced a solid team performance to defeat their opposition 13 goals to 8, rewarding them with a much needed victory, and a chance of qualifying through to the Semi Finals; Group A’s Desert Palm II, UAE Polo and Abu Dhabi will now have to fight until the end for a place in the final four.
The second match of the day however, turned out to be one of the most exciting of the whole tournament. With Zedan facing UAE Polo, and 10 goaler Pablo MacDonough and 9 goaler Lucas Monteverde on opposing line-ups, it was no surprise that these two teams went on to produce a high-scoring match. Throughout the five chukkas, neither side was able to obtain any advantage, until the final chukka when Pablo MacDonough showcased his impressive 10 goal ability to produce a perfectly timed, last-minute attack to give Zedan a 11-10 victory, and a definite place in the tournament’s Semi Finals.
Play continues on Friday at the Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club where Julius Bär by Habtoor Polo will face Bin Drai before Ghantoot take on Mahra.
