Statement from Beaufort Polo Club regarding the COVID-19 pandemic
In light of the Prime Minister’s statement on Monday 16th March and the HPA’s recent statement regarding the 2020 Polo Season (read here), we wanted to contact our members and supporters regarding the current COVID-19 Pandemic.
Firstly, we would like to extend our thoughts and our support to all of those affected by the outbreak and all of those who are fighting against it.
Our priority is first and foremost the health of our members, players, spectators, staff and suppliers who visit the Club. We are monitoring the rapidly evolving situation every day, keeping up to date with Government and Public Health England advice and working together with other Clubs and the HPA to ensure that our plans for the 2020 Season are adapted to protect everyone’s well being. The HPA have set up a Steering Group aimed at dealing specifically with COVID-19 and what implications this has for the Polo season, which includes one of Beaufort Polo Club Directors Mark Tomlinson. In the event that the Government recommends or imposes restrictions to the extend that the carrying out of our sport becomes too difficult we aim to postpone events and tournaments where possible rather than cancel.
We will continue to keep you updated with any news and changes via our mailing list, BPC WhatsApp Group, Social Media pages and on our website. As we navigate these uncharted waters we would like to express our thanks to everyone for their patience and support during this uncertain time and look forward to welcoming you back to the Club for the 2020 Season.
