The Malta Polo Club has started its new polo season with the Challenge Cup. Three teams of the top players from club fought for the coveted trophy. Karl Galea, Patrick Filletti, Chris Delia and Jean Vella of More Polo Team have won the tournament, with a large crowd of spectators watching the play from the Club House.

A prestigious trophy, The Challenge Cup was donated back in 1870 by the British Ships and Regiments Commander, and has been contested annually since that time. The Malta Polo Club was established in 1868, a fact which qualifies the club as the oldest in Europe and the second oldest in the world.
