Apes Hill Chukkas, 9 January – Pretoria Vs. Whitehall: Part 2
The first bout of chukkas on 9th January was very keenly contested, with Wayne Archer being the ace in Pretoria’s sleeve – the match was 5 to 4.5; for those new to Polo? When one team has a higher Handicap than the other then the lesser team is given a points boost to try and even the score – in this case, it didn’t work… Pretoria had better players and beat Whitehall, it doesn’t always happen but it can.
Unlike Golf, the higher your Handicap in Polo the better with 10 as the Ultimate – it is said only Argentina has two 10’s and two 9’s as globally-qualified competitors; everywhere else? Most folks are glad to have a 0 or 1 as qualifying them to compete in the sport!
