Last weekend the Jaeger-LeCoultre Autumn Cup at the British Cowdray Park Polo Club ended after almost two weeks and many thrilling encounters. Eight teams with a handicap of +8 and +12 participated in the tournament, which is the last in the series of HPA tournaments at Cowdray Park sponsored by the luxury watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre.

In the final Charlie Pidgley (-1), Mathias Carrique (+3), Will Emerson (+5) and Peter Webb (+5) of team Cadenza Juniors defeated the foursome of team Black Eagles, composed of Jonathan Munro Ford (-1), Jack Hyde (0), Chris Hyde (+6) and James Harper (+6), narrowly by 6-5,5. The prizes distributed at the award ceremony were sponsored by Casablanca Polo. Jack Hyde of the second-placed team Black Eagles was awarded Most Valuable Player.

Polo Manager Chris Bethell said: “We have seen excellent polo and hard-fought matches throughout the Jaeger-LeCoultre HPA Series at Cowdray Park this season. Jaeger-LeCoultre’s support for the Series, in addition to its role as Cowdray Park’s Official Time Keeper, has brought a new dimension and added interest. We also thank Casablanca Polo for the quality kit they have provided as prizes throughout these high profile tournaments.”
