The All England Polo Club at Hickstead in Sussex, will once again play host to the annual International Arena Polo Test Match which sees England taking on a team from the rest of the British Isles on Saturday 2 March 2013.

England will be hoping to continue their unbeaten run, having been victorious against teams from South Africa in 2008, the USA in 2009, Scotland in 2010, Argentina in 2011, and the USA again in last year’s match at Hickstead.

This year’s match will see England take on some of the best players from the rest of Britain. England will be captained by 9-goaler Chris Hyde, Europe's highest handicapped arena player. Chris helped the England team secure a 12-9 win over the USA in 2012 to take home the coveted Bryan Morrison Trophy.

Captaining the Rest of the British Isles team will be 8-goaler Jamie Morrison, who has two gold medals in the Federation of International Polo European Championships to his name. His successes in arena polo include two Arena Nations Cups and three Arena Gold Cup titles.

Following the sporting action, polo fans will have the chance to lunch alongside some of the top names in the sport.

AEPC Hickstead chairman John Bunn says: "It is great to be the HPA’s chosen venue for the Test Matches, and this year will see six of the best British Arena Polo players showcasing our sport at an extremely rare handicap level of 22- to 24-goals. This is going to be a day of polo you will not want to miss."

Admission tickets are on sale now, at just £5 per ticket, while the post-match luncheon is £45.
