36 POLO P L A Y E R S E D I T I O N Dear all, As the dust begins to settle and all are (hopefully) suitably recovered, it now only remains to say a huge congratulations to all involved on pulling off what has been the most successful Atlantic Cup tournament to date. The sheer work that went in to hosting this tournament should not be underestimated and it is, in the most part, thanks to the determination and efforts of Harvard Polo, Myopia Polo, and the many partners, alumni, and parents ... The nearly week-long schedule provided a whole array of activities for the students besides just the polo and apr├Ęs-polo, with the HBS case study and tour of the Athletics Department of particular note. The finals day itself drew significant crowds, perhaps exceeding 1000, judging from the cars parked along the boards, and it was a true celebration of shared legacy and history, helping to raise the profile of student polo. An often overlooked aspect, the tournament is not only a sporting competition, but strives to foster connections and lifelong friendships between the top institutions and university brands in Britain and the U.S. and we can all certainly say this was the case this year. Many thanks to all those that made this tournament possible through their efforts and generosity, in true American style. The bar has been set very high for future installments of the Atlantic Cup, so Brits, take note! Best, Issa Dasu Patel Harvard, Oxford, Cambridge and Yale teams celebrate after participating in the Atlantic Cup at Myopia.
