HPA Handicap News

22 goal 2018 handicaps announced

As we have reported previously, following the HPA Handicap Committee meeting on Wednesday 26 July, the HPA has introduced separate handicaps for the 22 goal for 2018. This means a player could be rated differently in the 22 goal (higher, lower or the same) as other levels. For international tournaments or overseas the highest handicap will apply. 

The HPA has also announced the 22 goal handicap changes, which applies to all 22 goal players, including subs from The Queen’s Cup and Gold Cup. A full list of changes can be viewed on the HPA website by clicking here, but a synopsis is as below:
22 Goal Increases:
Tincho Merlos & Nicolás Pieres: 8 to 9
Ollie Cudmore: 5 to 6
Tommy Beresford & Mín Podestá: 4 to 5
Hugo Lewis & Jack Hyde: 3 to 4
Jimbo Fewster & Hugo Taylor: 1 to 2
Ned Hine & Will Harper: 0 to 1
22 Goal Decreases:
Pelon Stirling: 10 to 9
Magoo Laprida & Fred Mannix: 8 to 7
John Paul Clarkin: 7 to 6
George Hanbury: 3 to 2
Alessandro Bazzoni: 1 to 0
As we upload this newsletter the Victor Ludorum 18 to 8 goal handicap meeting (those who played in The Prince of Wales, The Warwickshire and the VL 18, 15, 12 and 8) was underway, but results had not been announced. Until these are released it will be unclear who has a different 22 goal handicap to other levels. We will report on these as soon a they are in the public domain, so please keep an eye on the Polo Times website and social media for updates.
It is worth noting that all of these changes are subject to ratification by HPA Stewards after the ‘End of Season (remaining players) meeting’ on Friday 15 September and the handicaps will then become effective on the 1st January 2018.
