HUGH DAWNAY'S TIPS (N°19)

INTERCHANGING POSITIONS

Changing positions with another team member is the most effective way of surprising your opponents, especially if you are playmaking to initiate the next play.

Not only can you evade your normal marker, but you will also confuse the other opponents if, undetected, you suddenly get possession of the ball in the new position.

HUGH DAWNAY'S TIPS (N°12)

For every 'shot' you make apply 2 Clocks. First the Pony Clock (PC), with '12 o'clock' between pony's ears and '6 o'clock' over pony's tail.

Second the Ball Clock (BC) striking '6 o'clock' to hit straight,on both sides of pony, '4 o'clock' to hit offside neck shot and '2 o'clock' to hit nearside open backhand, etc.  Hence offside tail backhand requires combination of  PC '4 o'clock' and BC '2 o'clock'.

HUGH DAWNAY'S TIPS (N°31)

ENERGY ECONOMY
A car driver who brakes and accelerates too much will quickly run out of petrol. How big is the tank of a polo pony ? Seven and a half minutes, if the pony is fit and is not over exerted early in a chukka.
Unnecessary use of speed can be avoided, and braking minimized, by cutting corners to the next play. In this way, the pony’s stamina can be preserved on the day and for the future.
