Player+AreaIn recent years, members of the Hong Kong Society have visited Ham once a year in order to watch this spectacular game; they now have the opportunity to
cheer on their own team again. It should be a very enjoyable day out for all the family. Only eight miles from Hyde Park Corner, Ham is the last remaining polo club in Greater London. Founded in 1926, it has an established and distinguished reputation for excellent playing and social facilities combined with a relaxed family atmosphere.

We plan to organise the day at two levels: one for those who want to have a family, self-catering, relatively inexpensive day out and another level for those who want to spend the day in comfort, sipping enjoyable drinks, having a fuller lunch and watching the polo from comfortable seats in a special enclosure.

The main polo match will start at 12pm this year and there will be other matches in the afternoon from the Club’s Ladies Tournament. Details will be provided with a map in due course.

There are two plans:
Plan A: Bring your own picnic/chairs/rugs. Chukka Tukka, a van selling good snacks lunches and drinks, attends matches on that side of the ground.
Plan B: Sit on the veranda of the Clubhouse in the Members’ Enclosure, enjoying a three course buffet lunch, watching in comfort.

BallYou can form parties of friends, come with families or just come alone. We aim to have a good time and watch the most exciting game in the world and cheer on our own team.

The main prizes are being provided by Lawrence Geung, Chow Tai Fook Jewellery, Kwan Lo and “Aquila” sports equipment, HKETO and others.
