Junior Colts & Mini Colts Cups

HPA youth polo

 At the beginning of July and again in August the Hurlingham polo Association organised Training Days for junior players for three different age groups. These days were very well attended and as soon as it was possible for the young players to start being able to play competitive polo again it was decided to put on a group of matches for selective teams from each age group. 

The Mini Colts and the Junior Colts Cups were played over two days at the Holyport Polo Club on Tuesday 18 August and at Cirencester Park Polo Club on Thursday 20 August. In the Mini Colts for players of 8 – 10 years, two teams played a three chukka match spread out over the day around the matches for the Junior Colts for players of 11 –13 years. Team Red (Jonty Hodges, Valentine McPherson, Elizabeth Clarkin & Henry Whittington) emerged victorious. 
Four teams were selected to play for the Junior Colts on the Tuesday with the winners of each match going on to play a Finals on the Thursday. Four more players joined the two losing teams to play an American Tournament after the Finals.  The winners of the Junior Colts Cup were Team Blue (Ulysses Hu, Mack McCaffrey, Ava Greenland & Matias Maldonado) who beat Team White. In the American Tournament for the Junior Colts, Team Green won with Team Red second and Team Yellow third. A full report will follow in the September issue of Polo Times. 
A future date for the diary is The Colts Cup for players of 14 – 17 years, which will be played on Wednesday August 26 and Friday August 28 between four selected teams.
