Hector King Cup tournament

NSW Polo Association

This tournament is named after NSW player Hector King (1919 - 1968). Traditionally it is for 10 goal teams and was instituted after Hector King died so lower rated players could gain experience by playing along side better players in medium goal polo.  In recent years it has been for 8 goal teams.
