The Honourable Artillery Company present the IG Index HAC ‘105’ Polo Invitational, a three match event showcasing teams from the Honourable Artillery Company (HAC), veterans and military families, the Household Cavalry Regiment and the Parachute Regiment at the beautiful and uniquely positioned Ham Polo Club in Richmond, London.
The largest event in the HAC calendar, the 105 aims to become a leading fixture on the polo circuit with 2011 event seeing four regimental teams competing along with two teams of veterans and families.
