‘Lady Luck’ Ladies International Polo Tournament 2010, Windsor Polo Club

Ladies International Polo – a Right Royal day out at Richmond
The Lady Luck Ladies International Polo Tournament 2010 finals saw hundreds of Polo connections, enthusiasts and what is increasingly happening at the Polo, new converts, all converge on the Windsor Polo Club field for one terrific day.

The Riverlands Ladies International Polo Tournament is a part of the official WCT Tournament Schedule for 2010 and was hosted by Riverlands Polo Club whose marquee was our base for the day.  We donned our nosebags for some terrific nosh and were duly spoilt with impeccable hospitality amidst a friendly crowd that really got involved with proceedings.  There were Polo novices having their very first Polo experience and we know they will be back for more.   Several marquees, dotted around the field, made for a lively atmosphere at a game that is now the fastest growing equestrian sport in the world.

Even though the weather had cleared, due to the recent heavy rainfall, the only games that were able to be played were the two International ladies games with both the lead-up games and the jousting match having to be cancelled.

Polo is a fast paced contact sport and inevitably there are often spills.  Billie Mascart, of the European team, took a tumble into a goal post but stoically hung on only to be unseated when her pony slipped in the mud.  Billie  sustained an injury requiring hospitalisation but her mum Pam told us later that she would be okay.

Nina Clarkin, who is the world’s highest rated female Polo player, demonstrated her outstanding ability on the field leading her European Team to overall victory and was awarded the Player of the Day.  Nina is an oustanding ambassador for the sport and someone  girls could look up to as a role model.

Scores from the two Finals games; Europe 8 v USA 1 and Australia 7 v New Zealand 1.   The final outcome for the Lady Luck Ladies International Polo Tournament 2010 was First Europe, Second Australia.
