Potter Cup Match Real Club De Polo 30th May-1st June 2014 Captains report

POTTER CUP XLII, Real Club de Polo - 30th May to 1st June 2014

I was honoured to captain the Irish team participating in this year’s Potter Cup. I attach copies of the scoresheets for two of the three ties in which Ireland competed (vs. United States on day 1 and Belgium on day 2). We played against Spain B on the final day where we won one rubber, Niall Murphy winning at number one in three sets. The winner of the Potter Cup was Italy who came with a team of nine high quality players. This was a statement of intent straight from the start. France was runner up in a very entertaining final.

The IC of Ireland team enjoyed participating this year and as always our participation was appreciated by the IC of Spain and the organising committee. This year we had four wives and partners and it contributed very much to our enjoyment. As always the organisation of the event was superb and the social events were enjoyable. We experienced unseasonable rainfall on Friday morning and Saturday afternoon although this did not cause too much disruption.


Kind regards,

Yours sincerely,


Declan Heavey
