A hard fought match, our first game in the 2019 Copenhagen Shield at Black Bears saw the Heathfield Diamonds take on the Eton A team. The first chukka saw Heathfield two goals up then Eton matched, up to six all. In the final seconds of the last chukka Eton scored a lucky winning goal. The Heathfield team played magnificently against the very strong Eton team.

The next day’s match at Guards Polo Club against Marlborough was another fantastic display of team play from the Heathfield girls, their skills gave the great result of a win to us 7 -2.

There were constant compliments from the polo community about what a fantastic team we had produced; thirty two players and only six girls among them – we are extremely proud!

A huge thank you to the very supportive parents for their dedication and hard work in helping to make the players so confident and successful.
