White Rose Polo Club was treated to a superb weekend on 11th and 12th August at the Yorkshire Open Polo Championships. 17 teams competed across 4 levels in what was undoubtedly some of the best polo Yorkshire has even seen.
White Rose were delighted to see so many people teams from other clubs taking part with a welcome mix of familiar and new faces, many of whom attended Saturday night’s players’ party which was complete with hog roast and live music. All together a fantastic weekend.
The highlight of the weekend had to be the final of the highest goal (2 - 0) match, which saw team Summit take on team Eye Contact. A spectacular combination of speed, technique, team work and determination from both teams created a nail-biting match for spectators, and was eventually conquered by team Summit with a score of 6 – 4.
