The love for polo is often passed on from generation to generation. It’s like a craft. This is the case for 17-year-old Jack Hyde, a talented player, who has inherited the passion for polo from his father Chris Hyde, who has been tipped this year to become the best arena polo player Britain has ever had. Jack’s talent has secured him a place with one of the best teams and patrons around. It’s a great opportunity for him. This year, talent scouts and patrons are in hot pursuit and he is in high demand.
Lyndon Lea, a self-made millionaire and the highest-ranking amateur player in the world has recruited Jack to play the biggest tournaments this season. However his passion for the sport comes at a high price. Jack left school last year to pursue his dream of becoming a professional. His family is by comparison far from being the richest on the scene and leaving school is a gamble that might only pay off if he succeeds in entering the pro circuit.
