This past year the Pony Club Polocrosse Committee have been very busy supporting Branches from Scotland and Wales to Cornwall that are trying out Polocrosse and are very grateful to local UKPA clubs and their members who are supporting these Branches with training and encouragement. Hannah Clack, the Polocrosse Secretary, can be contacted at Pony Club Headquarters for any literature, equipment, information, etc. Many UKPA Clubs have run Pony Club divisions at their tournaments, which is a definite bonus for the sport!
This year the Championships were fully incorporated into the main Pony Club Championships at a new venue, Shelford, near Nottingham. The winning Championship team were the Flint and Denbigh Branch. The Open Section was won by a mixed branch team, the Allsorts, the Junior section was won by newcomers North Cornwall and the Mini Championships was won by Percy Hunt. Best Sportsman was Max Hedley (Rockwood Harriers) and the Best Sportswoman was Jasmine Hunt (Croome Hunt). Another â€˜firstâ€™ was the inclusion of a Pony Club Centre Team from North Wales, taking part in the Championships for the first time. The Coachmans Riding Centre provided the ponies and it was very encouraging to see the Centreâ€™s support and enthusiasm in promoting the sport. Dave Brookes is taking over the reins as Chairman from January 2008 and the Committee wish him well. Pony Club polocrosse is flourishing at Branch level which can only be good news for the UKPA!
