Irish Polo Foundation country-wide training programme
THE Irish Polo Foundation has rolled out an ambitious training programme for beginners and improvers that is expected to be offered at polo clubs across the country this summer and may include Northern Ireland.
Speaking with Pynck.com at the first in the anticipated series of training events that opened at Curraghmore Polo Club in Waterford Ireland, the Irish Polo Foundation’s Tina White said that this season’s opening programme had cemented plans to roll out the programme nationwide. Tina is a founding member and Chair of the IPF Women’s Section, and Chair of Curraghmore Polo Club.
“With the success of this weekend we plan to bring training to all the (Irish) clubs, that is the goal,” said Tina White. “We are making arrangements with Bunclody Polo Club (in Wexford Ireland) and we are hoping to schedule more (events) this summer.”
As well as wellbeing experts, the intensive training event earlier this month (18-20 June) received support from high performance coaches from Northern and Southern Ireland and veteran ‘playmaker’ players including Jamie McCarthy, Alejo Tagle, John Flavin, Nick Murphy, Siobhan Herbst, April Kent and Mark Ronan.
