Jam-Packed June

La Martina Varsity Polo Day results, SUPA dates & Javier Novillo Astrada U15 Cup

June is hotting up as a jam-packed month for youth polo across all levels in the UK. 
On Saturday 3 June, students flocked to Guards Polo Club for the ultimate Battle of the Blues, the 119th La Martina Varsity Polo Day. The day commenced with the Old Blues match; a battle of wills that was ultimately won by the Cambridge Alumni team 10-1½, with both the winning and losing teams being presented with bottles of British Polo Gin®. The polo players of the future fought fervently in the Eton vs. Harrow match, which was won by Harrow 6-4½. In the main event of the day, Oxford and Cambridge went head to head on the Prince’s Ground. The first half was very close, ending on a score of 1-1. However, Oxford managed to tighten up their play in the last half, earning themselves a 5-1 victory over their age-old rivals. 
This weekend, the Javier Novillo Astrada U15 Cup will be played as part of Beaufort Polo Club’s Festival of Polo. The tournament will see four teams compete, sponsored by Macwet, SATS, RJ Polo & Blackhound, for the top spot and will feature some of the best young talent from the UK and abroad, including Mia Cambiaso and Cruz Heguy. 
Meanwhile, SUPA polo is gaining momentum with three Summer National tournaments. First up is the SUPA University Nationals on 14 – 16 June at Offchurch Polo Club. Moving swiftly on, the Senior Schools Nationals will be held on Saturday 17 June at Kirtlington Park Polo Club and will begin in the afternoon in an alteration to the usual format. Last but not least, the Ladies National Championships will be held on the Zacara Grounds on Sunday 25 June.
With the addition of Pony Club Polo kicking off in July, it’s certainly going to be another busy summer! Polo Times has dedicated Youth Polo pages in every issue. Don't miss out on reading all the best polo news, knowledge, reports and social pictures, click here to subscribe.
