Oli Ellis resigns from Guards Polo Club
Oliver Ellis, who has been Polo Manager at Smith’s Lawn for the last 10 years, has tendered his resignation
In a move that has surprised many, Guards Polo Club mainstay Oli Ellis has decided to leave his role as polo manager and is set to leave before the end of the season. It is understood that he plans to develop his own polo consultancy.
“I have had the most amazing career in polo so far," said Ellis. "I played the game professionally for 30 years, travelled the world and met some incredible people and have made so many friends. Over the past 10 years I have held one of the most prestigious jobs in the polo world as polo manager at Guards Polo Club. I have many special memories but I just felt it was time for me to move on and concentrate on my business interests in polo elsewhere. I would like to thank all my old and present colleagues, board members, patrons and professionals for making my time at Guards so special.”
It is not yet clear whether he will stay with the club in the build up to the inaugural HPA International Day sponsored by Audi.
