No polo or riding experience is necessary to join polo! Some of our best players had never sat on a horse before joining.

For those who have ridden before, once you try our equine athletes you won't go back, polo ponies are a level-up from your average school pony.

Polo is like rugby meets hockey on horseback. It requires teamwork, ball accuracy and horsemanship at speed. Join polo if you love adrenaline fuelled sports and pitch-side socialising. There is no polo stereotype, we’re a down-to-earth club with the aim to bring polo to the masses. We cater for all levels from complete beginners to players with a professional handicap. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved from casual lessons to polo balls as well as national-level competitions..
