Our Polo teams have a successful season!

Promotion for both our teams!!

2012/13 season has finally come to a close and both our teams have had a very successful season in both regional and national leagues.


They had a fantastic season finishing 1st in National League Division 4 (North) and as a result they are promoted to division 3. This was against teams from Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds and  Durham amongst others and so they did really well.

They also finished 1st in the regional Yorkshire League Division 2 and are promoted to division 1. This was against teams from Leeds, Hull, and Pennine amongst others, and is another fine achievement.
