On 29th of September 2012 the British Polo Day took place again at the Singapore Polo Club. International guests, thrilling polo matches and a keen collection of donations made a day full of events.

In the opening game met the teams Red and Black of the Singapore Polo Club. Both teams had the same strength and therefore the game was still undecided in the third chukka. But then Lynly Fong, captain of team Red saved a lead with two racing goals. Despite one goal in the fourth chukka team Black was not able to make the equalization. Final score for team Red, 5:4.

The teams of W Hotel Sentosa Oxbridge and Land Rover Singapore had a neck-to-neck-race in the first two chukkas, too. They were shaped by long balls: besides Jeremy Pemberton Iqbal Jumabhoy, president of the Singapore Polo Club, hit hard balls and passes for his team Land Rover. But the winner was team Oxbridge leaving the field with a final score of 6,5:4.

In the third and last game Alex de Lisle (+3), Harry Townshend (-1), Matt Gottschalk (+1) the brothers Keith (-1) and Clifton Yeo (-1) of team Baha Mar Eton won against the team Savills SPC with a final score of 11:11,5. Although the players of team Baha Mar Eton never played together before, they developed to be really good team players and were unstoppable after the third chukka. Long hits of de Lisle prepared the decisive goals of Townshend and the two brothers. Clifton and Keith Yeo were awarded together as “Most Valuable Player“ for their achievements.

Edward Olver, co-founder of the British Polo Day: “The invitation to the Singapore Polo Club is a great honor. The horse symbolizes an international language, that is able to connect cultures, as it is only possible for the sport.“
