AREA 4bs VISIT TO LEADENHAM POLO CLUB

polo.png On Saturday 24th July eight of the older members met at Leadenham Polo Club for a training session subsidised by the Area. Firstly the girls were taken with their parents to watch a chukka on video. They were then all, in turn, put on a wooden "horse" and taught how to hold the polo stick and how to swing it with a view to hitting a ball!. Whilst this was happening the parents were given a very large jug of Pimms to share!

It was then onto the ponies to practice what they had learnt. They paired up and attempted to hit the ball whilst on the move. Not easy! The final part of the lesson involved a practice chukka where goals were actually scored but the pace was not full on!

Everyone enjoyed the session and the mums are now keen to have a go themselves. So hopefully another outing to Leadenham will be arranged for the Junior members and their parents.

I hope that there will soon be some photographs on the web-site to show what fun it was.
