THREE TOP-CLASS POLO MATCHES
2015 saw three matches on Friday, Saturday and Sunday
GWR Polo on the Beach 2015 saw three polo matches bringing together our usual top-class polo players.
Fighting for their third consecutive win, Team Cornwall, sponsored by Carrs Land Rover took to the arena on Friday to beat team Rest of the World in the narrowest of victories. With the home advantage the local heroes picked up the crown, winning 7-6 to make it three in a row! Best player went to number 3 Tim Vaux (defence)
and best playing pony to Colorada (Lychett Heath).
A drum roll for the big main Saturday match. New team sponsors Beach Retreats and Team Joules featured POTB titans Andrew Blake Thomas (5), Tim Vaux (4), Daniel Loe (3) and Andy Burgess (2). For the fifth year running Team Joules won the Watergate Bay Trophy from Beach Retreats who gave up a mighty fight, the final score being 12-8. Best player was number 3 Andrew Blake Thomas (attack) and best playing pony went to Apple (Vaux Park).
Topping it off was the first ever friendly match on Sunday Morning at 11.30am – but friendly is certainly wasn’t! Team Carrs LandRover Cornwall played against Team Joules in a gripping match full of clashes, with the crown eventually going to Carrs LandRover Cornwall who won 7-5. Best player in this match went to number 3 Tim Vaux.
Take a look at all the action from last years’ Polo on the Beach…
“A brilliant annual three-a-side exhibition match – the spectacular cliffs, expanse of sand and frothy waves provide a gorgeous setting.”
