This year’s Playnation Arena Polo Test Match (Saturday 2 March) will see the Flannels England team play France for the first time at Hickstead.      

Both teams will be aiming to pick up the Bryan Morrison Trophy, which is presented to the winners of the annual Test Match held at the All England Polo Club. England has an excellent record in this fixture, winning all but one of the international matches since the first Test Match was held at Hickstead in 2008.

“We’re delighted to once again be chosen to host the Hurlingham Polo Association’s annual international test match, and we’re very grateful to Playnation for coming on board as title sponsors of this match”, said AEPC Chairman John Bunn. 

Six-goaler Will Emerson has been named as captain of the Flannels England side, while his two team-mates are Eden Ormerod (6) and Ed Banner-Eve (6). The French team comprises seven-goaler Pierre Henri N'Goumou, Clément Delfosse (6) and Patrick Paillol (6).  

The day gets underway with the 12-Goal Challenge at 11.30am, which will see the Centtrip Wales Polo Team take on a team from Hedonism Wines, before the Test Match takes place at 1.30pm.

Admission costs just £5, and parking is free. Spectators also have the option of upgrading to the post-match luncheon, which is held in the Al Shira’aa Suite overlooking the International Arena. Tickets for the luncheon cost £49.50 each. 

Tickets are available at the gate or can be purchased online in advance.
