Seventeen year old Ellie Tempest, who has been a member of White Rose Polo Club in East Yorkshire since she was 12, is taking the UK polo scene by storm having being spotted and selected to play in the UK National Women’s Tournament at Ascot Park.
Ellie is a member of The Pony Club and has particularly taken a keen interest in polo, which she has been playing for almost six years.
Now, at the tender age of seventeen, she is preparing to head down South to represent Yorkshire in the UK National Women’s Tournament at Ascot Park, taking place on 25th and 26th August 2012.
The selection came following Ellie’s team securing top place at the 2012 Audi Pony Club Polo Championships, which look place 10th – 12th August at Cowdray Park Polo Club.
Ellie’s polo skills caught the attention of Sarah Wood of Women In Polo (WIP) - an organisation which aims to promote opportunities in polo for females, who selected her to take part in the National Women’s Tournament. With support from her family, friends, and everybody on her home turf, White Rose Polo Club, can Ellie secure another ‘gold’ for Yorkshire?
