Chester Polo Tournament, May 2009

Saw my first polo match yesterday; it's good fun. Fast and furious, and a very civilized, amiable social atmosphere.

 

"The Coutts International - 29 & 30 May 2009

 

"Chester Racecourse Polo Club is now firmly established on the British polo circuit and socially as one of the premier events in the Northwest. The Coutts International Polo Weekend, now in its fifth year, has become the polo club's flagship tournament, with teams competing to win £10,000 in prize money.

 

"Unusually for such a high-profile sport, prize money is rare, so the prize pot certainly attracts some of the best players in the world, with two past and present Captains of the England team and many international players doing battle on the field.

 

"We welcome you to come and experience the glitz and glamour of polo on the picturesque Roodee. Enjoying either the hospitality in the exclusive Sponsors' and Players' Enclosure, or just come along and bring a picnic - both make for a memorable day."
