ST ANDREWS CHARITY POLO TOURNAMENT 2019: REVIEWED

Last Saturday, in a picturesque field in Perthshire, the St Andrews Polo Society held their annual tournament amidst champagne, cigars, and, perhaps somewhat expectedly, rain. Perhaps the most summery of the Spring term’s events, the Polo tournament allowed students a brief moment of pause before revision weeks begin, in an event that proved Scotland’s residents will dress up whatever the weather. Garden party attire was encouraged, though with the proviso that “all weather is a possibility”, and students did their best to fulfil expectation: bright colours bedecked Errol Park’s grounds, that switched to umbrellas when the heavens (as is custom) opened in late April.
