In honour of 100 years of Maserati, the Italian company is hosting a celebratory Centennial Polo Tour which has already seen two exciting events take place in Palm Beach in the USA and in Tianjin in China. The third event in the series, the Jerudong Park Polo Trophy, took place on 15th June at Cirencester Park Polo Club.
The match was played on the prestigious Ivy Lodge ground at Cirencester and two very special guests also took part in the match: HRH The Duke of Cambridge playing for the Maserati team and HRH Prince Henry of Wales on the opposing BGM team.
The Princes took part in the game in support of their chosen charities; Centrepoint, Child Bereavement and Well Child. The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince George were also at Cirencester in order to support HRH The Duke of Cambridge on Father’s Day.
The two teams that competed in The Jerudong Park Polo Trophy are shown below:
1 Simon Keyte
2 Amr Zedan
3 John Paul Clarkin
4 HRH The Duke of Cambridge
1 HRH Prince Henry of Wales
2 Saad Audeh

The Maserati team managed to come out on top as the winners of a hotly contested match, with the final score standing at 8:7,5. The ‘Best Playing Pony’ prize went to New Zealand’s highest ranking player, John Paul Clarkin’s chestnut pony who coincidentally is also named ‘Maserati’. The ‘Most Valuable Player of the Match’ prize went to HRH The Duke of Cambridge, who received a La Martina Pro Evolution Helmet from the polo brand’s co-founder, Gachi Ferrari.
Maserati and global brand partner La Martina exhibited a bespoke one-off saddle created by the two companies in celebration of the Centennial Tour. The saddle was exhibited next to the newest Maserati model, the Ghibli executive saloon. A luxurious four door ‘Quattroporte,’ Maserati’s flagship model was also on display at the event.
