Trophies
The Gooch Cup
 

The Gooch Cup which is the most prestigious handicap cup in Western Australia

was donated to the Western Australian Polo Association in 1926 by the late Gordon

G Gooch Esq of Wandagee Station, which is situated in the West Gascoyne. 

 

Gordon Gooch was a loyal and highly respected supporter of polo and President of the WAPA for several years.

In latter years he resided in Perth and was a very familiar figure at polo fixtures. The cup is an extremely elegant example

of hand beaten sterling silver and to most polo players remains one of the most difficult to win. The Gooch has been played for every year up to the present time, save for a short break during World War 11.

Charles Cup  
 

The Charles Cup is Western Australia’s premier polo cup. The beautiful silver current cup is the third cup donated by Joseph Charles esq. Joseph Charles presented the first cup many years prior with the proviso that should the cup be won for three years in succession by the same team then that team would win the cup outright.

 

On two occasions this phenomenon was achieved and both times by the then famous Broomehill Polo Club. On the second occasions the team as captained for the three years by the late Edgar Richardson. It was only after these events that Joseph Charles who was not only an extremely staunch supporter of polo in WA, but also President of the WA Polo Association presented the third Charles Cup in 1929. The cup was presented as a perpetual cup to be played for in WA and stipulated to be played from scratch, (no handicap advantage). The hand beaten figure on the sterling silver masterpiece is from an actual match photograph taken from a contest between teams from Broomehill and Mingenew.  

 

Broomehill Team: Bob Louden, Ivor Roberts, Edgar Richardson (C), Bernard House

Mingenew team: Reg Percy, Charlie Readhead, Colonel Irwin Burges, Harold Readhead 

It is worthy to note that many of the players mentioned were ex members of the celebrated
10th Australian Light Horse Regiment. 

Donated by Harry Darlot Esq (Pastoralist) and was first played for in 1928.

It is presented to the Runners Up of the Charles, or to the Subsidiary winners. 

Lee-Steere Cup 
Donated by Sir Ernest Lee Steere (Pastoralist). It is to be played for with no handicap advantage (off the stick) and is presented to the winners of the B Grade competition.
