The prize giving saw a vast array of trophies given out, not only to section winners, but also individual awards for up and coming talent including a generous week of polo development for a player under 15 courtesy of sponsors El Remanso, awarded to Ben Nott (15) from the Tedworth Hunt Branch.
Bridget Hanbury of El Remanso commented:
“We were very proud to sponsor the Pony Club Polo Championships again this year, and what a success it was! It’s hugely encouraging to see so many young players enjoying the game and improving their polo year on year, forging new friendships and taking home memories that will last a lifetime. We’ve seen lots of promising Pony Club Polo players out at El Remanso who are now coming through the ranks, it’s hugely rewarding and we hope to see lots more in the years to come!”
Earlier in the week the Jorrocks section, for those aged under 11, enjoyed their Championships at Hurtwood Park Polo Club, which saw the Old Berkshire Hunt Branch take the top spot.
Charles Whittington, Chairman of Pony Club Polo commented:
“We have had a fantastic season most of the time blessed with glorious weather after significant rain had softened the grounds, so the conditions were near perfect for polo. Our wonderful sponsors El Remanso and the Hurlingham Polo Association, together with Thai Polo and our tack shop sponsors of SATS, Roxtons, Polo Splice and RJ Polo supported us along with the Polo Clubs who allow us to play on their grounds; my personal thanks go to the committee and the army of volunteers who make the Pony Club Polo season possible”.
