John Mathies Memorial Cup 2019
The Mathies Family are one of Silver Leys' favourites. The late John Mathies is celebrated every year in August with a stunning display of talent from both horses and players. Join us in watching the battle out on Pitch 1 for the family silverware - buckle up for some of the best players at the club stretching their ponies out in a dramatic race of wits and horses.
Whether you are looking for a delicious salad or you are just grabbing a locally-sourced burger from our clubhouse bbq, there is something for everyone. Enjoy the afternoon serenaded by one of our friendly live artists, providing the perfect backdrop to polo in the sunshine - if you want to find out more about their music and book them for your own event (at the club or at home), just get in touch with one of our event team.
Tuck into hand-made salads, Aberdeen Angus burgers (with or without cheese) from Humphreys' in Bishop's Stortford, spinach and quinoa vegetarian burgers and home-made cakes for a truly spectacular picnic beside the polo field. Grab a bottle of bubbly, a plate of delicious food, a schedule of the play and relax in the sunshine with the nail-biting action on the field for entertainment.
