The Cawnpore Cup 2017
On Saturday 10th June the Malta Polo Club held the most prestigious and final match of the Club’s playing season – Cawnpore Cup 2017– A trophy first contested in 1901, at Cawnpore India, (the site of the infamous “Cawnpore Massacre” in 1857) some 117 years ago.
Gifted to the Malta Polo Club in 1947, the Cawnpore Cup has been played for annually with the exception of the war years. The highest handicapped polo players in the Club are eligible to play in the Cawnpore Cup, and this year’s teams presented a fine selection of the Club’s best players.
This year’s match was attended by over 1000 spectators, making it the most successful polo event in recent years. Edwards Lowell & Hublot have teamed up with BMW & Veuve Clicquot, hosting the Malta Cawnpore Cup 2017 Hospitality VIP area. Boasting a 200 square meter exclusive area, set up to high standards, with free flowing champagne, this event has been one of a kind.
The Cawnpore Cup was presented to the winning team by H.E. Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca. Malta Polo Club & Edwards Lowell were honoured by the presence of local VIP’s and the CEO of Guard’s Polo Club Mr Neil Hobday and his wife Mrs Lise Hobday, who flew in from the UK for the match at the invitation of the Malta Polo Club. (Guard’s Polo Club is most closely associated with the British Royal Family. Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh has been President of Guards Polo Club since its formation on 25 January 1955).
