2020 Three Match International Polo Test Series

Polo Times is delighted to confirm the new format of a Test series in 2020 for the Frasers England polo team. Comprising of three polo matches in the Test series, rather than a one-off fixture, the opposing teams will be afforded all the benefits that are associated with playing together consecutively, rather than just once. The venues will also change, with Beaufort Polo Club being the first to be confirmed in the series, on Sunday 7 June 2020. This change in venues will, of course, not only present the teams with playing on different grounds and surfaces, but it will also open up polo and the Frasers England polo team, to a much wider audience.
An HPA spokesman commented, “After several months of planning, we are very pleased to announce that we are in final talks with the Pakistan Polo Association with the intention of putting together a three match Test series for Frasers England to play against Pakistan this summer. This is a fresh look for England polo and it is hoped that this new format will increase opportunities for HPA members and the general public to see an England team play in what promises to be a very competitive series. As a result, The Coronation Cup has been put on hold, but it is planned that it will continue to be played by THE England polo team against a national team of similar handicap in future years.
“Polo in the Park is now attended by a huge number of spectators and this year, a Frasers England team will play in that ‘arena-like’ format on the Friday and a Frasers Women’s team will also play on the Saturday, hopefully both against the USA. With an extended list of international fixtures in 2020 there will be more opportunities to play in and watch an England team this year.  
“For the Coronation Cup, it was always going to be a challenge to move it from its long-established venue at Guards. The Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club were brave enough to take on that challenge and despite their best efforts to recreate the glory days, it has become apparent that the face of International polo has changed and those changes need adapting to. The HPA are incredibly grateful to the team at The Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club for their investment in both time and resources in staging and running the last two International Days.”
