Polo festival returns

Polo festival returns

A POLO festival was held in Binfield Heath.

Dozens of people attended the event at the village polo club in Gravel Road where the highlight was the fixture between the home side Coppid Owls and HB Polo.

The Owls team included the Hon Tristan Phillimore, who runs the estate, and current England polo captain James Beim. The opposing side, who included Argentinian professional Alejandro Novillo Astrada, won.

Other clubs to take part in the five fixtures included Wildcats, Belina, Ausherra, King Kong/Home Farm, De Nada, RAF, Hendon Way Motors and Scotts Farm/Vantage.

Other attractions included refreshments and bouncy castles for children.

The club has hosted a charity fund-raiser each year since 1994, when the club was founded by Lord Francis Phillimore and Toby Greenbury.
