A Ham Polo Club team consisting of Howard Davis, Lucy Dowie, Benjie Davis and Will Healy travelled to France to play against the Courances Polo Club in Fontainbleau, the French town twinned with Richmond. The trip began with a visit to the Polo de Paris Club to meet the Marquis de Ganay and Serge de Ganay, the owners of Chateau Courances where the polo club has recently been established.
The Ham team then went on to Courances where they played the French side and a team from Germany. Whilst the results of the matches are best left unmentioned the hospitality was second to none and huge thanks go to Patrick Deedes for organising the whole occasion.
It is very much hoped that this new connection will become an annual away fixture for Ham furthering the wonderful international connections the club has.
