UK Arena Handicap Changes
2018/19 End of Season
The Hurlingham Polo Association has announced their End of Season Arena Handicap Changes for this season.
There have been over 50 handicap alterations, both up and down, across all levels from 7 goal down to -1 handicap.
At the higher end of the spectrum Will Emerson and Daniel Otamendi have both had their handicaps raised from 6 to 7, no doubt Will’s recent win whilst captaining the Flannels England team in The Playnation International Test Match for The Bryan Morrison Trophy at All England Polo Club, Hickstead influenced his handicap raise. Meanwhile, Richard Blake Thomas has gone up from 5 to 6 and Hugo Taylor has been raised from 4 to 5.
Ryan Pemble however has had his handicap decreased from 7 to 6 goals and Howard Smith’s handicap has also been reduced from 6 to 5 goals.
Alex and Nell Jacob have both had their handicaps raised from 2 to 3 goals, no doubt following on from their successes in the 2018/19 Women’s Arena Polo Series.
