Arena Handicap Changes

HPA announce the end of season handicap changes

The Hurlingham Polo Association has announced the end of season arena handicap changes, following a steward’s meeting on Monday 6 April. These changes came into effect on Tuesday 1 May.

There have been a total 66 handicap changes from across the broad range of handicap levels. FIP international and Arena Gold Cup winner Ed Banner-Eve, and his Gold Cup team mate brother Alec, have both been promoted from 5 to 6 goals and 4 to 5 goals respectively, following their success at The Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club (RCBPC) and their home Club, Moor Hall Farm. It has also been a successful season for the Cork family, who have seen three out of their four playing family members (apologies Marcus), each rise by one goal apiece. 
The HPA have also reduced the handicap of a stream of well-known top arena players. RCBPC Chairman Jamie Morrison has seen his handicap move from 7 to 6 goals, whilst RCBPC regular Ryan Pemble will now play off 7 goals, following a one goal demotion. Irish international Mikey Henderson has also seen his handicap reduce from 6 to 5 goals. In the lower ranks, there has been a spate of handicap promotions, the largest of which goes to Rugby’s Tarek El Ahmar who has been moved from -1 to 2 goals!
