In keeping with the ethos of HRH and his staunch support throughout the years with his Duke of Edinburgh Awards programme, the Guards Polo Club is at the forefront in supporting polo for the young. Throughout the season, it holds representative matches and tournaments for the Pony Club, Schools, Universities and young players from the Armed Forces.
