UK High Goal Season

Teams announced

The rumour mill has once again been turning in regard to the upcoming UK high goal season, with 13 teams unofficially confirmed. The biggest shake-ups of the upcoming season see the return of 2017 Gold Cup winners King Power and Rashid Albwardi’s Dubai, following a high goal hiatus since 2016. Andrey Borodin and his Park Place team will return for a second year competing in the British high goal, but noticeably absent will not only be world number one Adolfo Cambiaso, but also the 2018 Gold Cup winners, and all-Brit line-up, El Remanso.
James Beim and James Harper will be teaming up again, this time under the Scone colours, whilst as far as Polo Times are currently aware, Ollie Cudmore and Charlie Hanbury will not be playing the high goal season. What’s more, this season will see two female Captains taking to the high goal fields, with not only Corinne Ricard returning with her Murus Sanctus side, but also HH Sheika Maitha competing with the strong combination of Guillermo ‘Sapo’ Caset, Santiago Toccalino and Cacu Araya in The Cartier Queen’s Cup.
Play gets underway at Great Trippetts Polo Club and The Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club in May with the Final of The Trippetts Challenge on Thursday 16 May and the Final of The Prince of Wales on Sunday 18 May. This season is set to be a thrilling battle for victory, with 13 teams competing for the five key titles.
