New polo academy at Cowdray Park

Cowdray Park Polo Club is to launch  a new Polo Academy for the 2015 Season. Activating and heading up the facility is registered polo coach Guy Verdon who has played polo for more than 30 years and coached for the past 15 years.  His coaching has taken him all over the world including Argentina, New Zealand, the USA, Spain, Dubai and Brunei.

The new facility will be hosted at nearby Madams Farm by polo professional and former England 8 goal player Alan Kent.  Alan’s professional career has seen him play polo worldwide and win, in the UK, all the major HPA tournaments including the Gold Cup, Warwickshire Cup and the Prince of Wales trophy. He has been a regular coach for the England polo team.

Peter Barfoot, Chairman of Cowdray Park Polo Club, said:  “We are very pleased to be launching a new Polo Academy at Cowdray Park in time for the 2015 Season. Guy Verdon’s experience makes him the ideal person to head up the new facility at Madams Farm.”

Guy Verdon said: “Having played at CPPC many years ago, I am honoured to be working with Alan Kent and the club on this exciting new venture.  To teach and welcome new players to the sport, at the Home of British Polo, is a great privilege.  This is a tremendous opportunity for the Club and British polo, during an already exciting year for CPPC.“

Private or group lessons are offered at both senior and junior levels along with instructional chukkas in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.  Bespoke corporate days and team building exercises can be arranged as well as half or full day discovery sessions.  Gift vouchers will be available.
