We’re delighted to announce that the Cotswold Airport Polo Team has won the ‘low goal’ New Zealand (NZ) Polo Open.
The Cotswold Airport Polo Team is sponsored by Stackhouse Poland, and the NZ Polo Open is a prestigious event in the sporting calendar, with players from around the world competing for one of New Zealand’s oldest and most sought after polo trophies. Now in its 42nd year, the tournament took place at the picturesque Auckland Polo Club grounds in Clevedon.
The Cotswold Airport Polo Team is highly regarded within the sport, and the world’s number one female polo player, Nina Clarkin, occasionally plays for the team. The team regularly compete in the Cotswold area, and are based at Cirencester Park Polo Club. As part of the sponsorship, the team wear Stackhouse Poland branded livery.
Cotswold Airport is the largest privately owned airport in Europe and unlike most general aviation airports the runway can take large passenger carrying aircraft – the airport is used by many high profile clients, including members of the royal family. Chief Executive Officer, Suzannah Harvey, was part of the team that won the ‘low goal’ NZ Polo Open – congratulations to Suzannah, Jonty Apatu, Ben Barne and Ollie Jones on their fantastic win!
