The Hurlingham Polo Association will welcome New Zealand teams as opposition for England on a bumper day of international polo during the Gloucestershire Festival of Polo on Saturday 8 June 2024.

The first of two matches will see teams at 16-goal level play for the historic Golden Jubilee Trophy, which was first presented by the late Queen Elizabeth II in 2002 in celebration of her 50 years on the throne.

The trophy has previously been won by many famous names in polo, including the Duke of Sussex, and has been played at the Beaufort for many years. In 2023, it was won by the England team of Zac Beim, Dom Lodge, Alfie Hyde, and Luke Wiles against Peru.

In the second match of the day, a Young England team will play Young New Zealand in an effort to recapture the Buckmaster Trophy, which was snatched from England’s grasp in the final seconds when these two teams faced each other in 2023.

The Gloucestershire Festival of Polo is the highlight of the season for Beaufort Polo Club, featuring not only action-packed polo, but something for all the family including captivating arena displays, the endless fun of a traditional funfair, and a variety of retailers in the tented shopping village.
