2018 End of Season Ladies’ Handicaps

HPA announce changes

The Hurlingham Polo Association has released the End of Season Ladies’ Handicap Changes today, with a number of prominent handicap changes taking centre stage. With 555 players registered on the ladies’ handicap list in comparison to the 525 playing registered members in 2017, the rise in popularity of women’s polo is undeniably on the way up. 

Whilst the handicaps of a number of ladies’ polo’s most prominent names remain unchanged, such as Nina Clarkin at 10 and her sister Tamara Fox at 7, Flannels England young player Milly Hine will be raised from 4 to 5, with her Argentine counterpart Mía Cambiaso set to play the 2019 season off 7 goals. England International and Diamond Jubilee Most Valuable Player Hazel Jackson-Gaona, will be raised to 9 goals following a very successful season on both the national and international circuit. Her Flannels England team mate Rosanna Turk will go up to 4 goals. A number of visiting players have also had their handicaps raised with the likes of HRH Sheikha Maitha Bint Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum rising from 3 to 4 goals and Kenyan Tiva Gross set for a great 2019 season at 6 goals following her impressive play at the Kings Head Hotel Ladies International at Cirencester Park Polo Club. 
With the ladies’ handicap system differing greatly from the standard handicap system, these changes are set to have little impact on mixed team line-ups for the 2019 season, but with, for example, two out of four of the 2018 Victrix Ludorum winning Dodson & Horrell team players moving up by a goal apiece, the 2019 Victrix Ludorum series line-ups will see considerable change.
