Guards Polo Club was sad to learn over the weekend of the death of Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, founder and patron of the King Power Polo Team. His sudden death, in a helicopter crash, after one of his beloved Leicester City Football Club games, is a huge blow to the entire polo and football communities.
Vichai and his sons, Apichet (Tal) and Aiyawatt (Top) are passionate players of polo and huge supporters of Guards Polo Club. This did not just mean competing in the Cartier Queen’s Cup tournament but supporting our overseas events in both Dubai and China and allowing us to use their fantastic private fields in Berkshire when needed.
Our Chairman Jock Green-Armytage has written to the Srivaddhanaprabha family to express our sincerest condolences and we will be publishing a tribute in our next issue of Ten Goal magazine, which is due to be published in November.
