Leta Lau and Lianne Lam In an ef­fort to bring polo, which hasn’t been played in Hong Kong since the de­par­ture of the Bri­tish army at the han­dover, back to the city, a se­ries of demon­stra­tion games was played over the week­end, each in­volv­ing two-mem­ber teams drawn from the Hong Kong Polo Team. A game on Satur­day in­volved Aron Har­ilela and our Fe­bru­ary cover star, Raphael le Masne de Cher­mont, on op­po­site sides. At one point Aron hit the ball with such force that it ric­o­cheted off a mem­ber of the judg­ing panel, caus­ing gig­gles among the spectators and leav­ing Aron a lit­tle red-faced—a state that was com­pounded when his side lost the game to Raphael’s team. For­tu­nately, they were play­ing with spe­cial air-filled balls rather than the hard plas­tic ones of a tour­na­ment match, so the judge wasn’t hurt.
