Unlike outdoor polo, Arena polo plays on an all weather surface in a boarded arena with three players on each team. Goal ends are not changed during a chukka. In games of more than one chukka, goal ends are changed after chukka.

Chukkas are started by the umpire throwing the ball in the centre of the arena between each team, which will be on the side of the centre line nearer the goal it is defending.

Cotswold Hunt Arena Polo Tournament

Report from Polo Times:

The Cotswold Hunt Pony Club held their Junior Arena Tournament at Longdole Polo Club on Sunday 11 April. The tournament was kindly sponsored by Lovelocks Polo Stud. The day consisted of 11 teams including, Cotswold, Heythrop, Combined, Beaufort Blue, Taunton Vale, Beaufort Buff, Meynell Foxes, Meynell Hares and SOHS. Chris Walker commented, “It was a fantastic day, everyone played really well and we are delighted to have been part of today’s tournament.
“It was great to see so much team spirit, on a rather chilly spring day. The ponies were all turned out immaculately and it was wonderful to see everyone having an enjoyable time. It’s really rewarding to see the standards of polo just getting better and better. We would like to say a huge thank you to all those who helped to make the day happen.”
At the prize ceremony there was a one minute silence held for Bonnie Armitage, who very sadly passed away just one week ago out on the hunting field. Our thoughts are with her family at this very difficult time.

The results:
HX/Jorrocks: 1st Meynell Foxes, 2nd SOHS & 3rd Meynell Hares
Surtees: 1st Heythrop, 2nd Taunton & 3rd Beaufort Buff
Loriner: 1st Heythrop, 2nd Combined, 3rd Taunton, 4th Cotswold & 5th Beaufort Blue
