This fantastic tournament, founded last year, was once again played to celebrate female patronage, embracing all that is good about polo.
A typical English weekend, weather wise, saw the games on Saturday played in bright sunshine whilst it was all change on Sunday with high winds and rain the main stay of the day.
Sunday’s games saw Churnly’s Maria Shevchenko, Sammy Luff and Tomás Llorens take on AFB’s Maryam Sherozia, Celine Lawrence and Chino Leiva to win the Subsidiary Final.
The Final pitted the home team Honesty, Romilla Arber, Yolanda Arber and Max Charlton against Tex8n’s Mindi Byrne, Carla Burt and Nico San Román. The match was competitive but played in great spirit and, in the interest of fairness (given that 10 goal Max Charlton was on the pitch), it was agreed that no professional would be allowed to score during the tournament.
With the score a draw at the sound of the final bell, both teams decided to share the win. However, in the spirit of the event and sportswomanship, Romilla asked for the trophy and prizes to be presented to Mindi, Carla and Nico.
