Park Place got off to a great start in the Justerini & Brooks Prince of Wales Trophy, the first 22-goal tournament of the British season, hosted by the Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club.
Andrey Borodin’s team, which saw Santos Merlos subbing in for Will Harper, claimed an 11-9 win over Vikings in a hard fought match. The action was very level over the first four chukkas of play, but in the fifth, Park Place was able to hold Vikings back. They persevered until they claimed the victory.
The 2022 edition of the Justerini & Brook Prince of Wales Trophy sees ten teams, up to 22 goals, compete for the title.
