Victor Ludorum 2019 Tournament
Victor ludorum, or Victrix ludorum, translates from Latin to ‘winner of the games’, which gives an idea of the prestige associated with this polo tournament.
Dallas Burston Polo Club are proud to have been selected to host the Victor ludorum 2019 tournament, for the fourth consecutive year, and Sunday 26th May will see the Stoneythorpe leg of the championship come to a dramatic conclusion, with all teams fighting to lift the Stoneythorpe Cup.
The first event of our summer and grass polo season, the Stoneythorpe final coincides with our Opening Season Party, which is definitely an event not to be missed.
