British Ladies Polo Championship 2019, held at Cowdray Park Polo Club.
This tournament ran alongside the King Power Gold Cup making it a busy few weeks filled with competitive Ladies and Mixed Polo. Six teams entered the 18 goal tournament, with our very own Hurlingham Polo side entered along with UAE, Cowdray Vikings, La Ruleta, Tarantula and Team Tonic.
Hurlingham Polo had a tough draw in the tournament coming up against La Ruleta in the opening game with Nina Clarkin our Global brand ambassador and ladies 10 goal player as opposition. Unfortunately we ended up going down 8-4.
The next game was played in pouring rain on the Ambersham fields at Cowdray. We were up against reining champions UAE, which was always going to be a tough game. Again the score went against us 9-3, with the conditions not helping either team.
The final was between the unbeaten UAE side and Cowdray Vikings. The first chukka was extremely close, Cowdray Vikings doing a great job in containing UAE, however the couldn’t keep them at bay for the second half, subsequently going down 6-1.
The Ladies Victrix Ludorum circuit now moves on to Cirencester Park Polo Club. Good Luck to all teams involved.
