Senior Schools Summer National Championships

Sunday, 19th June – Cirencester Park Polo Club

We are exceptionally lucky that this year we are being hosted by Cirencester Park Polo Club and Glion are sponsoring this event.

With a change from previous years we will play beginner, novice, Intermediates and Open Div 2 in the morning.  Please see the news item with a letter from Cirencester Park Polo Club detailing all that is lined up for the day.  Open Div 1 will be played on the prestigious No. 1 Ground ‘Ivy Lodge’ during the afternoon.

It is great to see so many teams already entered, but Don’t forget that Open Division 1 is limited and you will need to enter your teams asap to secure a place.  Division 1 Open players must have an HPA handicap.

Please remember you do not need to be at a school that plays polo to be included within SUPA, we do accept combined teams.  All combined teams need to be run past the Senior Schools Steward as per our rules.  Equally if you are trying to put a schools team together and you do not have enough players please contact Caroline at we often have children looking for slots in teams.

Please ensure you have read our rules before entering a team

Divisions/Playing Ability

This tournament is aimed at all levels of ability and is a great opportunity for those children that have been taking lessons all term to get out and play against those of a similar standard, be they complete beginners through to open level players.  There is a misconception that only the best team should be entered but this is not the case and we are here to encourage everyone to play.

If you are unsure about which section to enter please check our website
