HUGH DAWNAY'S TIPS (N°26)

APPLICATION OF LEGS 

The pony and the player should be balanced before a strike is commenced and this is done simply by a strong squeeze of your legs. This action will also greatly assist you to make an accurate approach to the ball.

HUGH DAWNAY'S TIPS (N°21)

UNIQUENESS OF POLO

The three ways in which polo is unique among sports :

1- The disparity of skills of the participating players

2- That there is a right of way related to the path of the ball

3- That, without relation to the ball, you can obstruct another player in the 75%.

The combination of these three factors provides great scope for one player to make a fool of another, when competing for the ball.

HUGH DAWNAY'S TIPS (N°42)

Hands Softly Applied

Soft, sympathetic hands are easy to apply from a correct seat or half-seat, supported by strong legs. While, in due course, a car can be fitted with new brakes, a new mouth for a pony is unobtainable.

By keeping your left hand low, neck-reinning becomes extra effective for all lateral adjustments. The use of strong legs, before slowing or stopping,…

HUGH DAWNAY'S TIPS (N°14)

WITHIN A TEAM

To participate effectively in a team as a playmaker, you must develop three abilities :

1/ To receive and give passes

2/ To compete successfully for the ball in the 25%.

3/ To prevent opponents hitting the ball, from good anticipation, in the 75%.

HUGH DAWNAY'S TIPS (N°43)

PENALTIES AND TACTICS

Penalties can be awarded from the spot, the centre, the sixty-, forty- and thirty-yard lines, or take the form of a penalty goal, followed by a throw-in ten yards from the goal.
The umpires decide witch one to award using three criteria : where the foul took place, the direction of the play and the severity of the infringement.

HUGH DAWNAY'S TIPS (N°24)



TWO DIMENSIONS:





A good player en route to strike the ball makes a precise adjustment to deal with two dimensions.

1. To join the line of the ball as early as possible.

 

2. To place the pony to the ball accurately, in order to be able to hit through the required circle and aim in the exact direction of the chosen target.

A ball-chaser normally rushes…

HUGH DAWNAY'S TIPS (N°46)

HOOKING STICKS DISTANCE

A hook is necessary when you are in the 25% but it is clear that your relevant opponent has an advantage, in that it is too late for you to win a ride-off and not possible to look for a foul.

Hence the priority is to prevent a shot being completed without committing a foul. This requires a good technique that can be applied when close to and behind an opponent.



Many players frequently miss…
