The 7th HERITAGE POLO CUP 2012 Final took place on 5th August 2012 at Hurtwood Park Polo Club in Ewhurst, Surrey owned by ex Who drummer, Kenney Jones. Despite Polo not being an Olympic sport since 1936, at Hurtwood Park Polo Club, the Olympic spirit touched upon the game once more with Bradley Wiggins, Olympic Gold Medalist presenting the Cup to Silver Fox USA Polo Team. Hurtwood Park Polo Club Member and Polo Patron Park Bradley (-1) from America, was over the moon with his Polo Team playing at top of the game.

Heritage Polo is an impressive and exciting revival of Polo in the 1900s, as played by British Empire Army Officer Cadets at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in 1885, and Ladies in the United States of America in 1912. Polo History is brought back to life in a fresh concept with a weekend fixture of four teams performing in ‘Old English Wear’ dress code. Gentlemen compete for the Heritage Polo Cup and play in white jodhpurs, shirt & tie provided by TM Lewin. 
Ladies compete for the 'Ladies HERITAGE POLO CUP', also playing in revival polo attire, as worn by ladies in the 1900s. Barbara Zingg, Founder of Heritage Polo and Fashion Designer has designed an exclusive HERITAGE POLO range of women’s clothes with Upender Mehra from Liberty Freedom United Kingdom celebrating this era. 
‘This year we focused on the Olympic Spirit and the Polo Team of the Ladies of the British Empire" says Zingg

"Liberty Freedom developed a specific fabric with the Union Jack pattern and we thought that would just be the perfect outfit for this occasion - what a joy to see them holding the Ladies Crystal Cup high."

Heritage Polo are raising funds to support the NERO ASIBELUA FOUNDATION  based in Lagos, Nigeria. A non-profit, non-governmental organization, focused on brightening the lives of children, youths, families and artists with little opportunities of developing and maximizing their potentials. Specializing in bringing about solutions and grants for children's education, widow and widower Supports, art grants and preservation, cultural value protection, charity causes, musical concerts and skill acquisition.
The support of the NERO ASIBELUA FOUNDATION from Nigeria was also underlined by a new project to raise funds for under privileged children in Africa called 'Rare Black Ts'. Behind the project are two young ladies Camilla Lovegrove & Serena Esiri newly graduated from Rodean Girls School. The launch with a group of girls and children to the spectators and family and friends was a life experience in the presence of Bradley Wiggins, who gave them their support and interest on the afternoon.
The new Heritage Polo Collection manufactured by Liberty Freedom United Kingdom was show cased with the Showing of a string of Polo Ponies. The British Raj Collection & Sandhurst Red Coat Range got the ultimate HERITAGE look with the Ascot Top Hats white Pith Helmets.
Heritage Polo is the ‘Rediscovery of Polo History, Fashion & Art'
