Silver Leys Cup 2019
06 - 07 July
Silver Leys Polo Team have been part of Bishop's Stortford since the 19th Century - over the years we have moved, changed shape, and developed into one of the fastest growing clubs in the country. We have a lot to be proud of!
Our celebration weekend will feature a Victor Ludorum 4 Goal, spectacular food from Bron Banner-Eve, our grassroots players putting on an incredible display in the low goal and, of course, a big ol' party on Saturday night!
The Victor Ludorum series is Polo's answer to the Premier League. Teams travel across the country to compete against one another, visit clubs they wouldn't normally play at and, most importantly, make friends across the sport. Silver Leys are delighted to welcome the series to the club this summer to put on the highest level of low goal polo we have seen on the freshly irriagated and sanded grounds in a long time!
What to expect: Faster, harder and more dramatic polo.
With the polo academy in full swing and players of all ages (from 13 upwards) getting involved with our -1 Goal tournament, some of the best young talent will be on display. Even the players who only picked up a stick a year ago are showing us all up and providing incredible shows of sportsmanship and skill. These are the ones to watch! Why not join the ranks of up-and-coming players? Regardless of age or abiliity, grab a try polo taster and find out what it's all about.
What to expect: incredible displays of horsemanship from young players, amateur teams coming together and showing the Pros how it's done.
Whether you are looking for a delicious, 3-course hand-made VIP luncheon (it comes with a glass of fizz too...) 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.
VIP Terrace and Lunch

Be greeted by a glass of bubbly while enjoying the polo from the VIP terrace in front of Pitch 1 (the best view in the house) then take a seat for a scrumptious 3 course lunch with your guests. Why not make the most of the day and treat yourself to a VIP experience, all for just £49 pp.
