KAY, DR JAMES RICHARD PAUL (PAUL)
For services to polo

Dr Paul Kay has significantly raised the profile of polo in his community and New Zealand, and enhanced New Zealand’s standing in the international polo community.

Dr Kay is a renowned breeder and trainer of polo ponies, President of Kihikihi Polo club, and past President and Life Member of the New Zealand Polo Association. In 2003, he was a driving force behind transforming the 16 hectare Kihikihi Domain into a community sport and recreational facility. He developed and funded a world-class polo pitch adjacent to the domain, which is made available to the community at no cost. He now organises annual international polo test matches on this ground and allows visiting teams to use his own ponies for the event. He also developed a polo pitch on public land in Cambridge, which doubles as a large open recreational ground for public use. Mr Kay continues provide his own machinery to maintain five grounds in the Waikato.
