1st Alumni match

On Sunday, 12th October, Cambridge University (CUPC) held their

first match of the Michaelmas term at their new club – Cambridge

County Polo Club, situated in Lode, just outside of central

Cambridge. The weather held out for an exciting afternoon, where a

hard fought and close match took place. The players, having been

used to the green, grassy turf of grass polo, found it partially

challenging to make the transition back to arena polo, as is custom

in winter. Yet they impressed onlookers making good use of the

walls, hitting the larger arena ball off the sides and embarking on

plenty of rigorous ride offs, spurts of galloping and much ferocious

hooking.

A total of three Cambridge Alumni members, took on their current

University member rivals in a number of tense chukkas, but

fortunately for CUPC, the Alumnis weren’t able to reach victory, the

afternoon culminating in a 9-8 victory for CUPC current students.

All-in-all, the day was a success and an indicator of the strong

relationship the club maintains between current and alumni members.
