IMMEDIATE PRESS RELEASE
SUPA Bulletin #4
Following a meeting of the Board of Trustees of SUPA, the charity announced the further postponement of its National activities due
to the uncertainties surrounding the Coronavirus Covid 19 and concerns for our Member Institutions. This is an update from previous
March, June and July Press Releases.
SUPA is adhering to the Guidelines set by the HM Government [for its operations in England Wales and Ireland], while observing the
recent July 20, Bulletin 11 guidance, and July 31 Rules from the HPA, the polo governing body, and KBIS our independent insurers.
The Trustees are mindful of our Institutional Members interests and have ongoing communication. In the interest of health and safety,
social distancing, and open access to the sport for our SUPA member-players, we are pleased to confirm that your KBIS insurance
cover for Limited Liability [see below] remain in force pending your membership renewal. SUPA bespoke Personal Accident Policy is,
however, not available for non-SUPA polo activities but KBIS has offered to provide individual coverage for other polo events if
As from August 1, 2020, SUPA Membership renewal will be reduced by 20% and when we resume operations, hopefully in the Fall,
your Official Entry Fee SUPA Events will also be reduced by 20%.
We are therefore directing SUPA member-players to renew your SUPA membership and to adhere to the Government/HPA guidance if
electing to commence club/riding school lessons or training of any form. As a public non-profit charity, the preservation of our sport
and safety of members are paramount. Members 18 and under years of age will need to include parent/school consent, as normal,
as a personal responsibility and player’s choice.
SUPA/SAPA are associated members of the Hurlingham Polo Association and a supporter of the Association of Polo Schools and Pony
Hirers which support the polo industry generally. This bulletin applies to SAPA as well.
The Trustees will be reviewing its future fixtures and events as well as consulting in advance of further information from
www.hpa-polo.co.uk which will be released as the situation evolves on its website,
www.supa.org.uk. and for insurance questions, contact
