Major General's Cup 2016

Friday 2nd September - Sunday 4th September


A wonderful reminder of the Club's military roots, where civilian teams play alongside military squads over one weekend in a battle to win the Major General's Cup.  Spurred on by a military band, this is a wonderfully evocative day of sport and pageantry. 

Finals day (4 September) is also the date for the annual Grenadier Polo Day Challenge. Over the past six years, this day has helped raise almost £20,000 for various rehabilitation initiatives for injured servicemen and women. There will be a match at 3pm featuring The Young Guns v The Veterans.

 If you would like to book for lunch in the Clubhouse on this day please call Pink Food on 01784 477650 well in advance to either create a table, join an existing one or have them organise a private picnic for your party. There is also a 10% discount in the La Martina Store at Smith's Lawn on this day if you quote "Once a Grenadier always a Grenadier".
