What an excellent session it was last week. We avoided the rain, had some great games and didn’t kill or maim anyone. A fun day indeed.
Dean kindly popped down to assist and gave an excellent “Double Dean” refereeing performance. With constant and accurate weather forecasts, extremely audible time keeping and not getting in the way too much he kept the games running smoothly.
Much to Kol “The Statsman” frustration and amusement Dean decided to call “Shuffle” every time Kol touched the ball. In a statement Kol said “It was funny the first 4,000,000 times but after that it started getting a bit annoying.”
Richard “A Goal A Game” Franks put in an excellent performance scoring a goal in every game. He even got 2 in one game. Well done Richard. “Guiness” Dave (not distracted at all by locking people in a cellar or something like that) put in an excellent performance to get second spot on the day only losing out to Kol on goal difference.
Playing only his third session of the season Young Jack “The River Horse” put in a great performance to claim 3rd spot. Well done young man. I really shouldn’t mention PC Paul’s performance but although he played well throughout the session he still managed to come last. Winning only one game. Must try harder Paul.
Today it the last session of the Spring Season. With 104 points has Mr Roger “The One And Only” done enough to stay top of the table? He has been formally excused from today’s carnage and so has his closest rival Nick “The Shouty One” on 95 points so its all down to Kol on 77 points to try and catch them. The #1 ranking is also up for grabs. Nick is currently #1 on 65.97% but a good performance by Dean 60.22% or Kol 62.60% could see him drop in the ranking.
It’s all to play for and it’s always fun so come on down and lets play polo.

The weather forecast for last weeks session was abysmal and just for once the forecasters were right. When warned about the “biblical” weather forecast the “One and Only” Mr Roger just shrugged and said “Its only a bit of weather...” and he was right in a way. It was “only a bit of weather” but it was most definitely one of the worst bits of weather. As predicted heavy winds and torrential rain descended on the court and very quickly stopped play.
Before the monsoon struck five brave or possibly foolhardy players turned up for some 2 on 2 action. They got through seven games before calling it a day and retiring to the pub for the remainder of the afternoon.
Mr Roger was on form and scored most of the goals and would have been on target for beating Kol “The Statsman’s” record of 22 goals in a session. In an official statement to the press Adam “The Workaholic” said “It was wet, it was windy and Mr Roger scored all the goals.......All of them”.
PC Paul pulled off a remarkable block on Nick that allowed Mr Roger to score yet again, and in the process made Nick “The Shouty One” fall about laughing at the genius of PC Paul’s stopping ability. IT was a good block.
Apart from the weather it was another good session and despite scoring nearly all the goals Mr Roger only managed second place beaten on bonus point by Nick “The Shouty One”.
Nick retains his #1 ranking and Mr Roger is hanging on at the top of the table. With only 2 sessions left of the Spring Season everything is still up for grabs.
The weather forecast for today looks a lot better so BRING ON THE POLO!

Oh we did have fun yesterday at East Park. The sun came out, we had lots of spectators and had a jolly good day indeed. Although the court had a very smooth playing surface it was possibly the windiest court we have ever played on.
We were joined by lots of “newbies” of varying ages. The “youngs” picked it up really quickly and appeared to have no fear. Luckily we didn’t break too many of them. All in all it was a very good day.
We learnt a few things on the day too. We learnt that you shouldn’t every ride Richard’s bike as it has the meanest front brake ever and will attempt to throw you off and possibly kill or maim you. Dean “Double Dean” Dent also learnt that whilst spinning 360 degrees on you back wheel it is a good idea to stay on your bike.
Today we are back on our regular court so Bring on the Polo!
