The Prince of Wales’s Championship Cup

New English 22 goal tournament details announced

Guards Polo Club has announced the details of a new English 22 goal tournament which will be played for the first time this season – The Prince of Wales’s Championship Cup has been offered the personal support of HRH The Prince of Wales. The tournament will be played over 1 – 22 August, which will allow payers to play in the other major English high goal tournaments, it will be the first time in the Club’s history that it hosts two Hurlingham Polo Association-approved 22 goal tournaments. The Club’s Chairman Brian Stein commented, “We are honoured to have the support of His Royal Highness with regard to this tournament. He played much of his polo, including the high-goal at Guards Polo Club, winning The Queen’s Cup in 1986 and it is wonderful that we can honour His Royal Highness in such an appropriate fashion. The successful introduction of the redeveloped Princes’ Ground in 2020 signalled to the global polo community that Guards Polo Club was investing heavily in its grounds, focusing on creating the very best possible playing surfaces.”
team entries close on 1 July and the club will announce more information about ticketing and hospitality after 17 May – it is hoped that the August fixture will allow non-playing members, their guests and additional spectators to attend.
