We’re delighted to announce Ricky Cooper as the most recent Brand Ambassador for Marloe Watch Company.
Ricky is the Wales Polo Team Captain and has represented Wales since the inception of the national team in 2008. With numerous Championship victories, Ricky has played in over 100 international games for his country and was instrumental, along with Harry Legge-Bourke, in setting up both the Wales Polo Association and Wales Polo Team along with the team Patron HRH Prince Charles, who recently renewed his patronage for a further 5 year period.
Ricky’s determination to develop the national team has seen them compete in an ever-growing list of fixtures from beach polo to snow polo. Having won many titles across the globe, Ricky utilises his position in the sport to give back to charities such as Sentebale, Help for Heros, Noahs Ark and Prostate Cancer UK - all of whom have benefited from the involvement and work of the Wales Polo Team.
This year, in addition to the British Beach Polo Championships the team will compete in multiple events across the UK and North America.
Ricky has spent a great deal of his polo career in the local area playing out of Fifield and many of the Berkshire Polo Clubs. He’s no one-trick-pony either, having represented Great Britain at ice hockey at World and European Championships multiple times, and early next year he will be taking part in the incredible World Marathon Challenge, where he’ll attempt to run 7 marathons, on 7 continents, in 7 days – something one of our other Ambassadors, Rob Bell, achieved in 2015.
Outside of polo Ricky is also a keen and committed charity worker, raising thousands of pounds for a myriad of good causes, not to mention his work training and rehoming ex-race horses - the man never stops.
We’re delighted to be working with Ricky over the coming year – especially being involved in the polo industry and supporting him and his team throughout their fixtures, making the games as accessible as possible across the UK. We’ll also be supporting and contributing to Ricky’s World Marathon Challenge, raising funds for Sentebale - a charity founded by Prince Harry and the Prince of Lesotho supporting young people affected by HIV in Lesotho and Botswana.
