Regal Warriors Secure Womenís Title

Ladiesí Arena British Open concludes

This year’s Ladies’ Arena British Open was held on Saturday 23 February under the bluest skies and warmest conditions in recent memory and with the grandstands groaning under the weight of the extensive crowd, this year’s finalists, Glitterati Polo and Regal Warriors took to the arena.
The play was fast and frenetic in the first chukka, with the teams matching each other’s plays and goal opportunities. Entering the second chukka, the scoreboard read 2-2 and the chukka continued in the same ilk. At half-time, there was not an obviously stronger team, with the scores resting on 4-4 going into the break. But, as if by magic as the third chukka commenced, Regal Warrior’s Charlotte Sweeney, ably assisted by Genevieve Meadows and Captain Charlotte Christodoulou, considerably stepped up her pace scoring multiple goals to give her team the two goal lead needed to really break the goal scoring stalemate, 9-7. This renewed energy didn’t stop there, as Regal Warriors secured another six goals in the final chukka to only two in response from the might of Glitterati Polo’s Rosie Ross. So, as the final bell sounded, Regal Warriors secured their first title of the day 15-9, to a roar from the assembled crowd. Jubilee, owned by Will Newman and played by Saskia Meadows, was named Polo Times Best Playing Pony and Regal Warrior’s Genevieve Meadows was awarded The Polo Magazine Most Valuable Player honours. A full report will follow in the next issue of Polo Times, so make sure your subscription if up to date here.
