Description


To celebrate 50 years of polo at Smith's Lawn, Guards Polo Club has commissioned Major JNP Watson to write the definitive history of the sport at Windsor. Polo correspondent for Country Life for some 20 years, Major Watson meticulously charts the development of Europe's largest polo club from its humble beginnings in a muddy field in the heart of Windsor Great Park to the present. Today the club plays host to some of the most famous polo tournaments in the world, including the Queen's Cup and the Coronation Cup. In-depth chapters on the influence of the Royal Family on the Club and influential players throughout the decades make this publication a must for all polo enthusiasts across the globe. An outstanding collection of illustrations illuminate the text and bring the sport to life.
