The season may be drawing to a close but it is all to play for with the Billy Walsh Final one of the most coveted trophies at the club.

Jimmy Edwards Trophy

The Jimmy Edwards Trophy is a well established fixture on the HPC calendar. The late great comedian Jimmy Edwards having been a long standing member at the club. Edwards was an English Comedy writer and actor who regularly featured on television and film in the 1950s and 60s. On Sunday Avengers played Mavericks in a scintillating encounter.

Junior Academy Challenge

Taking to the field on Sunday the Junior players of Ham put on a challenge match. After further coaching from Junior coach Lucy Dowie the players were looking sharp. It was a great display of the fast growing talent pool of youth players at the club.

David Brown Cup

The David Brown Cup is another trophy that is steeped in history at the club. Sir David Brown was an active member of the club during the 1960s and 70s helping to secure the freehold purchase of the club's main ground in 1970. He was also a prominent industrialist and one time owner of Aston Martin. You can still see his mark on Aston Martins to this day with his initials denoting the 'DB' on many of the current models.
In Sunday's match for the cup Jet Set played Vendetta. With both teams having played in many high level outside tournaments this summer it was always going to be a good match up. At the final bell Jet Set were the winners after some fantastic polo. A notable performance came from Chief Umpire Freddie Ventura who put in a great performance.
