The Toughest Ladies in Sport
On a warm sunny afternoon in July ‘09, Polly Nomial, Shannon Frey and I were knocking the ball around the old court at Grandview in Vancouver BC. Patricia Cournoyer stopped by on a break from work and watched us from the grassy knoll outside the tennis fence. Shannon was pretty new to polo and we were trying to encourage more women to play, but a ladies night never really took off. Neither did a beginner night.
