Cowdray Park Polo Club is delighted to announce that the Embassy of Hungary, together with the Hungarian Tourism Agency, are the new sponsors of one of the Quarter Finals in the King Power Gold Cup for the British Open Polo Championship. The Hungarian Ambassador, His Excellency Kristof Szalay-Bobrovniczky, has commissioned a bespoke trophy to be presented on the afternoon of Saturday 14th July in the Quarter Final match taking place at 3.00 pm between El Remanso and Alfi Investments.
In a nation well known and respected for its equestrian activities, polo remains a relatively new sport, but the Ambassador is set to change opinion: “I have been an enthusiastic rider for many years, but when I witnessed top level polo for the first time I became immediately attracted to the skill and athleticism required by both players and horses. I hope my first initiative in the world of polo will encourage many people in my country to appreciate this thrilling sport.”
Cowdray Park Polo Club Chairman, Roderick Vere Nicoll, adds: “We are delighted to be welcoming the Ambassador and his guests to Cowdray Park Polo Club. I am always excited to be introducing new people to our sport and I know they will be watching some of the highest quality polo to be seen worldwide as the 2018 King Power Gold Cup moves into its dynamic knock-out phase.”
