University of Nottingham Polo Club become national champions again!

 
Polo

Competing at the SUPA (Schools & Universities Polo Association) Summer National Championships recently, the University of Nottingham Polo Club had brilliant success. At the championships, the clubs Upper-Intermediate and Novice 1 teams both played incredibly well and managed to win both of their divisions, which meant that the club retained its status as national champions! Having won three previous titles in as many years, this is now the 4th consecutive year that this feat has been accomplished. This is a truly brilliant achievement, and with the Upper-Intermediate and Novice 1 levels being the highest level of university polo, the clubs success proves the sporting talent currently representing the #GreenandGold.

On their success, the clubs committee gave the following statement:

“We are so proud of everyone who competed at the SUPA Summer National Championships, especially those who won their divisions. Everybody represented the university impeccably and proved that the #GreenandGold is a force to be reckoned with! We would like to thank our coach, Grant Collett, and everybody at Offchurch Bury Polo Club for all their hard work in helping us achieve what we have.”

In total, the university was represented by 11 teams at the championships and we congratulate them on their success. This is all the more impressive as due to Coronavirus and the lack of competition in recent times as many of our Polo players have not had many opportunities to train. For the majority of those who took part in the championships, it was also their first time playing competitive polo. We look forward to seeing the club and it's players continue to develop as they gain more experience in competition.
