TWO TOP-CLASS POLO MATCHES
Polo on the Beach 2017 will see two high goal polo matches bringing together our usual top-class polo players.
Fighting for their forth consecutive win, Team Cornwall will take to the arena at 6.30pm on Friday 19 May to beat team Rest of the World.
Last year they won 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).
The main event – the Watergate Bay trophy – will be awarded on Saturday evening with the main match chukka-ing off at 6.30pm on Saturday 20 May.
Tide times in 2015 allowed for three matches on Friday, Saturday and Sunday – 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 the final score being 12-8. Best player was number 3 Andrew Blake Thomas (attack) and best playing pony went to Apple (Vaux Park).
“A brilliant annual three-a-side exhibition match – the spectacular cliffs, expanse of sand and frothy waves provide a gorgeous setting.”
