THE KING’S ROYAL HUSSARS CUP AT TIDWORTH

Posted on

Memories of sunny summer days, savouring a chilled glass of Exton Park Brut Reserve while watching a traditional game of polo are just what we need to see us through the autumn.

And we shall certainly treasure that August Sunday when the Finals of the Exton Park King’s Royal Hussars Cup were played at Tidworth Polo Club, in the shadow of Tedworth House, one of the Help for Heroes recovery centres for wounded servicemen.

Team Exton turned out with a vast homemade picnic, plenty of our sparkling wine to share, and in fine voice to cheer on the KRH teams that we sponsor. They all looked impressive in their Exton Park polo shirts, which were clearly lucky match mascots. The KRH Team B won their Low Goal group after a close game against the Royal Navy, while the Regiment’s Team A were only narrowly beaten in the High Goal Final for the actual King’s Royal Hussars Cup – a massive trophy that went, in the end, to the local Fyfield Flyers team. It was nail biting stuff…

Congratulations to all the players for an excellent, and memorable, tournament. We felt honoured to be part of it.
