We thank the Selection Committee and James Harper (Coach) for their hard work and commitment to the Australia squad, the experience you bring is invaluable.
Our special thanks also goes out to all the horse lenders who have contributed their wonderful horses for this event, international events such as this would not happen without their generous support and we thank them on behalf of the entire Polo Community. The horse procurement team of Anto White, Jim Gilmore & Pat MacGinley have done an exceptional job in securing Australia’s finest horses and again we thank them on behalf of the entire Polo Community.
Australia’s first match is played on Saturday 21st October versus Spain and we encourage you all to get along to the XI FIP World Polo Championship and support our AUSTRALIA team!
