Overview of a successful Potter Cup

The 2017 Potter Cup saw the first edition of a Ladies event alongside the longstanding Men’s event, which celebrated its 45th edition. And what a successful long-weekend it was! 
 
Overall 12 teams competed comprising of; 8 men’s teams including a Spanish B Team, the RC Polo team, and 4 women’s teams. Notably it was a weekend of outstanding level of play from both the men’s and ladies competitors and most importantly it showcased the sportsmanship and true IC spirit.
 
As always, the social side of the weekend was thoroughly appreciated and enjoyed by all the players. Particular recognition must go to Berta Tintore and her family, the IC of Spain and the RC Polo Club who did a fantastic job of organising and hosting such an excellent event. The IC of GB ladies expressed their gratitude in the form of a poem, which can be seen below.

Looking ahead to next year, we hope that both the Men’s and Ladies Potter Cup can build on this successful edition as additional ICs have already expressed their interest in participating in next year’s event.
 
A Poem from the IC of GB Ladies:
 
Red White and Blue
Would like to thank you
For a great weekend
With our tennis friends
We are honored to be asked to play
On your fantastic slow clay
We love to slide, we love to scream
And after we play, having a beer is our dream
We challenge you to have a game on the grass
You can’t slide coz so fast!
A big thank you to the family Tintore
From the lovely GB 07 IC
