The Wodehouse Stud polo team were one of two teams from the Norfolk Polo club who entered the Mad May tournament at Suffolk Polo club this year. Fortunately we were in different halves of the competition and both teams won their competition and came away with a fantastic hare sculpture trophy as a result.
The Wodehouse Stud were Emma Beardshaw (0) , Peter Burton (-2), Matt Evetts (2) and Paul Bussey (-1). We won the Saturday match against the Woodland GG’s by 9 goals to 2 1/2 to progress to the Sunday final against Griffins which we won 6 goals to 4 1/2
It was the first time we had played together as a team so it was all the more pleasing. A big thanks to Matt whose polo was sublime. Emma was rock solid and powerful despite using the match to try out ponies and Burton’s wonder-goal in the first 30 seconds of the Saturday match set the scene for the weekend.
Thanks to all the team and to Suffolk for their great hospitality – if only we could get them to visit Norfolk!!
