We have had a phenomenally successful 2009 season and, as one of the biggest tournaments of the year, the Yorkshire Open promises to provide a fitting finale. It will be contested by some of the best polo sides in the country, so should be even more exciting this year!

For the first time, this year's Yorkshire Open polo tournament will see sides from across the country battling it out for the top honours.

The two-day event will be hosted by White Rose Polo Club at Townend Farm in North Cliffe on the weekend of August 15 and 16, and is one of the last major tournaments of the season in the Yorkshire polo calendar.

The competition, which was founded in 2007, has previously only been open to Yorkshire clubs and was, therefore, a three-way battle between teams from White Rose Polo Club, Beverley Polo Club and Toulston Polo Club from near Tadcaster.

Matches will be played at Townend Farm and nearby Houghton Hall throughout the weekend, but the finals will be staged at Townend Farm on Sunday 16 August.

As always, spectators are welcome with no membership necessary. The tournament is sure to be fiercely contested and should make exciting viewing for all those who join us, so it's a great opportunity to bring a family picnic and make a day of it. The gates open at 10.30am and the first games will begin at 11am. Admission costs £20 per car.

Hedley Aylott, Chairman of White Rose Polo Club, said: "We have had a phenomenally successful 2009 season and, as one of the biggest tournaments of the year, the Yorkshire Open promises to provide a fitting finale. It will be contested by some of the best polo sides in the country, so should be even more exciting this year!"
