Best of British Polo returned for its fifth showcase event, raising funds for injured service men and women. A 5,000-strong crowd took their places at Tidworth Polo Club, where last year's event saw £15,000 raised for Help for Heroes.

The day saw a triple bill of matches - the Royal Navy took on the Royal Air Force in the Duke of York's Cup; injured service men and women played alongside members of the Army team to contest the Heroes' Cup; and the Best of British Under 25s proved itself to be an exhilarating high goal match between eight of polo's top names.

Despite a wet start to the day and a delayed first match, guests showed their 'Best of British' spirit and put up gazebos to protect themselves and their picnics from the rain.

"So many people braved the weather to support this fantastic event," said Suzy Otton from Westover. "We took five Land Rovers and a Jaguar to the event and were really pleased to welcome lots of new faces - from both the military and civilian worlds - to our stand, as well as some very familiar ones too!

"We all thoroughly enjoyed the day and were delighted to be able to support Tidworth Polo Club in its Help for Heroes fundraising activities. We're looking forward to coming back for the Rundle Cup and the Captains' and Subalterns' Trophy later this year and very much hope to be back for the Best of British next year too."
