THE TIMBA CUP ~~ July 14th - July 15th
SPECIAL SEMINAR ON THE RULES OF POLO
This week is another busy one for the club. Not only the Charity Cup - but on Friday 13th July at 6.30pm we are very pleased to have secured Jason Dixon, HPA Regional Umpire, to give us a Seminar on the Rules- highlighting latest changes and tips and guidance for players. We are very lucky to get him on his one day off from umpiring the Gold Cup- so let’s make the most of his time- come with your questions!
His talk will start at 6.30pm in the Clubhouse. The Bar will be open. We’ll see if we can persuade Monique to have some food on offer too. We will hold a small fun Quiz (only a couple of questions!) at the end - with a bottle of champers to the winner!!
Entry free for members and £10 to non-members.
Please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are able to attend- space for about 25 so let us know asap if you are coming and we will save a space. Looking forward to seeing you test your knowledge in time for the Timba Cup!!
Welcome to Cambridge County Polo Club, nestling in an idyllic rural setting of 220 acres of farmland, is based near Lode, Cambridgeshire, between Cambridge and Newmarket.This family orientated Polo Club boasts five pristine polo grounds laid on black peat, to cushion the ponies limbs. The social side of the club is enjoyed by its members, and centres itself around the oak framed club house with its unique "Punt" room. New to this season are the exciting Polo & Picnic Days which allow our polo tournaments to be enjoyed by a public audience.
Cambridge County Polo Club, was established in 2008 by Ed Wright, a polo playing farmer. He decided to create a well organised, professional playing club in these outstanding grounds. As a farmer he fully understands how to maintain the pitches to the highest level, the grade one soil cushions impact for the welfare of the polo pony’s limbs and joints. Ed enjoys encouraging new members to learn to play polo, in this fun, family orientated club, but warns the game can be addictive. He and his partner Sarah jointly manage the club and in addition to the Polo and Picnic Days they will be hosting corporate events, in the grounds and The Punt Room, the stunning oak framed club house.
