The team, which won the Sir Winston Churchill Cup 2018, proudly lifted the trophy as they closed the day with a final score of 7 to 6 against Mahra Polo team.
The culmination of the AHPRC Christmas League had a festive swing to its usual Friday Polo Picnic. Gazeboes were adorned with Christmas decorations where guests relaxed and enjoyed the Subsidiary and Final matches. A delightful Christmas Market with delicious food and all things sweet from the food trucks on site were available for the guests to indulge in some last minute shopping or delicious food. The children entertained themselves in Christmas carnival games, arts and crafts and gingerbread making as the day ensued.
