It was chukkas-up as history was made on Wednesday 5th February with the first training session of the Stonyhurst College Polo Squad.

 

Coached by international High Goal player, James Fielding of JF Polo Academy at Cheshire Polo Club and Chester Polo Club, the teams currently train every two weeks in winter, switching to more regular grass polo in Spring.

 

Dr Nicholas Grigsby, Deputy Head (Co-Curricular) commented: "It was a very impactful training session. Our pupils practised a range of essential skills including polo riding, fore and backhand swing and the combat of the effective ride-off. It was great to see our pupils so engaged as well as having so much fun and enjoying their premier pony stock, all from international high-goal careers."

 

We continue to prepare for our summer season and look forward to welcoming College spectators to our first matches.
