This is the ‘Ashes’ of Polo.
Offering guests the chance to watch the highest goal polo in its purest form
in Australia, Windsor Polo Club will host the Polo International on Sunday 5th April.
‘Last year’s test was a spectacular showcase of our horses, players and fields. It was a brilliant day full of fast exciting polo, amazing horses and full-on fun.
This year sees us up against the UK again. They will be very tough. James Harper and Ollie Cudmore are both accustomed to playing these matches and know how to get a win’. – Glen Gilmore, Ellerston Polo Manager and former Australian Polo Captain
