Posted by admin on Tuesday, 29 August 2017


Three (3) teams were entered with two days of play scheduled at Goose Creek Polo Field.  It was going to be a very competitive tournament with the team players all knowing each other except for the two West Indians, Savannah Hussey from Jamaica and Linda Williams on the Apes Hill team from Barbados.  They were joined by professional player and team favourite Julia Smith and Nicole  Watson.

The field was exceptional, the weather perfect and the polo fast and fun.  The first day had the Maryland Rebels in front, followed by Apes Hill and then VIPolo.

Unexpected rains delayed play from Saturday to Sunday and with the fields sodden, the decision was made to play the finals in the Arena. 

Apes Hill were the team to beat, however, despite the all out efforts of both VIPolo and Maryland Rebels The Apes Hill Club team played some amazing polo beating VIPolo 6-4 which then took them to a nail biting final against Maryland Rebels in a penalty shoot out to win the Tournament!!

MVP was awarded to Julia Smith who scored the most amount of goals during the tournament and the Tri-County Feeds Best Playing pony was also awarded to Julia’s exceptional pony “Glee,” bred and owned by Goose Creek Polo Team
