Taunton Vale Polo Club (TVPC) announced that their long-serving Honorary Secretary, Nick Harrison-Sleap, passed away on Thursday 3 November peacefully in his sleep, “Nick has been an integral part of TVPC for longer than the vast majority of us have been playing and his dedication and generosity to the Club knew few bounds. Nick and his commentary was TVPC for many.
Passionate about polo from an early age his involvement as a player went far beyond Taunton and evolved into a passion for enabling and supporting polo not only played well but also in the best traditions of good sportsmanship. He will be very sadly missed and leaves a gaping hole in the Club.” Our thoughts are with his family at this sad time. Sir Rupert Mackeson commented, “Nick was the salt of the earth, he had a vast number of friends, one of those rare people 99 percent of people who were immediately liked. I shall greatly miss him, we were friends for over 30 years.”
