British SUPA team to face USA next month

First ever international SUPA arena team will play the USA in California

BRITAIN WILL PLAY the USA in the first Schools and Universities Polo Association (SUPA) international arena match.

The SUPA university team will face a USPA intercollegiate side at Empire Polo Club, California, with the final Test Match being held alongside the Townsend Cup on 12 January.

The British team will comprise three-goalers Charles Scott and George Shelton from University College London, three-goaler Alexandra Jacob of Royal Agricultural College and one-goaler Sam Browne from the University of Cambridge.

A preliminary match against Southern California university will be held before the main Test Match, allowing each player to take part in at least one match.

A shortlist of players was selected based on handicap, with the final team chosen following try-outs. The team will be coached by eight-goaler Sebastian Dawnay. The USA team is yet to be announced.

Plans are also underway to host an international Test Match against the USA at the SUPA National University Championships in 2014.
