What a great way to start the new season with University Challenge at Rugby Polo Club. A massive well done to all our teams who competed over the weekend, with a special shout out to our N2 and N3 teams who both came away with 3rd place, our B3b team who were 2nd, and to our intermediate team who absolutely smashed their division and won! Bring on winter nationals…
It’s just one week to go until we play our exhibition chukkas at Canwell Show! It will be a great day and we can’t wait to see our sponsors Rayworths Champagne Bar. Come as long as we would love to have as many people supporting us as possible!!
2 of our 5 teams which competed in the SUPA Summer Nationals over the last few days! A few of the highlights from this year include having 2 of our players victoriously representing Great Britain against China and our Open team finishing in 2nd place nationally..
Member, Harry Runnacles and former member, James Wilson did Birmingham proud today, as they got involved in the Royal Artillery Polo Cup at Tidworth.
All those wishing to play in the Summer Nationals this year must contact the club as soon as possible. The dates for the tournament this year are 14th, 15th and 16th June. There is a change of venue for the tournament this year and it shall be held at Offchurch Bury Polo Club, close to where we currently train at Rugby Polo Club.
The use of spurs is not allowed in SUPA tournaments. Only 3 strap helmets are allowed for players. Also, although it is not a rule for over 18’s, SUPA strongly advises all players to wear protective goggles.
