The London Open this year was played in Hackney downs. It felt like a little polo festival. In the middle of the park it was very easy to forget the big smoke and simply soak up the games and vibes. Nice to see so many teams mix it up, it really added to the vibe that there were teams of players who had played against each other in the past and came together to play with each other because their regular 3’s were not available. The same went for us, wit Marc still out injured from Barca, we opted for Jacob from copenhagen. It was a real pleasure to play together. We came 7th out of 52 and Emmet received a well earned MVP prize. Huge thanks to Jono Marshall for the organization. A stunning achievement and done without letting us know or feel he was ever stressed.
