    10/06/2018

    09/06/2018 Chestertons Polo in the Park came to a close today with another sunny day. Thousands of happy kids and three fast and furious final polo matches finished off another brilliant weekend. The day started with the most anticipated part of the weekend… the Sharky & George Pitch Invasion! The field was taken over by bubbles, giant bouncy castles, games and space hoppers which ensured each and every child had the time of their lives. The favourite game of the day had to be the water balloon catapult: a great way to cool down in the London sunshine for the kids at the event to kick off their summer. Following the children’s fun on the pitch it was time for the first match of the day as the home side Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park Team London went mallet to mallet with Experience Kissimmee Team Kissimmee. Both sides showed great defence throughout the game; however, it was the home team that narrowly missed out. It all came down to the last chukka with No1 Rosemary Water Team London falling behind, leaving it a battle for their defence to hold off the strong Kissimmee attack. George Meyrick scored a crucial goal in the last few minutes of the match but sadly it wasn’t enough for the home team with the game finishing 9-8 to Experience Kissimmee Team Kissimmee. Next up was the bronze medal match and it was time for Whitley Neill Team Cape Town to take on Argentex Team Dubai. As the claxon sounded the teams set off on the suicide start as they raced to the middle of the pitch for the first hit of the ball. It was a great start from Dubai with Chris Hyde, who holds one of the highest ratings on the field this weekend, unsurprisingly standing out following his 10 goals in the tournament. Hyde’s strong performance ensured Argentex Team Dubai had the upper hand and the game ended 9-5 to a victorious team Dubai. Lastly it was the final match between Air Europa Team Buenos Aires and EFG Team Zurich. Air Europa Team Buenos Aires kicked off the match with an extremely strong start with Marcus Araya dominating the field. Marcus scored an impressive two pointer in the second chukka to make it 3-0 to Air Europa Team Buenos Aires. However, Gregory Touret came out fighting and managed to salvage two points going into the third chukka. The crowd were loving the final action and it seemed Air Europa Team Buenos Aires were too hot to handle for EFG Team Zurich and the final result ended as 6-3 to Air Europa Team Buenos Aires meaning they were crowned the champions of this year’s Chestertons Polo in the Park. Congratulations to patron James McCarthy who led the team to the win and ensured they celebrated in style as they lifted the

    09/06/2018 The second day of Chestertons Polo in the Park saw all of the glitz and glamour of London arrive in Hurlingham Park for Ladies Day presented by Boadicea the Victorious. Alongside the fashionable outfits, sunshine and party atmosphere were three exhilarating polo games. The day started with the crowd-pleasing Oxford v Cambridge La Martina Bike Polo match. The historic rivals pedalled it out as they both fought hard for their side, but Team Oxford secured the win in the competitive clash. In the first polo match of the day, Argentex Team Dubai met EFG Team Zurich, with the latter dominating the game throughout. Zurich’s Juan Cruz is the top goal scorer of the tournament so far and teammate Gregory Touret also scored two goals in the Swiss side’s 8-4 victory. Thousands of spectators flooded the grandstand and surrounding bars for the second game that saw the home side No.1 Rosemary Water Team London take on Whitley Neill Team Cape Town. After three two-pointers from Cape Town and with Oli Hipwood standing out, the South Africans led 6-0 at half-time. But with the support of the home crowd, London fought back in the second half with some outstanding play. Sadly it wasn’t enough and they lost out 6-8. The final match of the day on Ladies Day presented by Boadicea the Victorious was Air Europa Team Buenos Aires v Experience Kissimmee Team Kissimmee and what a thriller it was. In a very hard and fast match Air Europa Team Buenos Aires stormed ahead in the first few chukkas with Marcos Araya scoring an incredible two pointer. Charlie Wooldridge replied with two important goals, however it was too little too late for team Kissimmee as they ran out of time and the game finished 7-5 to Air Europa Team Buenos Aires. Tomorrow, Chestertons Polo in the Park welcomes family day to Hurlingham Park for London’s best children’s party and Finals Day.
