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.

We are the Southampton University Polo Club. 

Never sat on a horse before? No Problem! 

We are a fun-filled club that wants to see you try something new and have a good laugh with your mates. We play at an affordable rate so there is no excuse not to try it. We guarantee after your first taster session you will be addicted to our great sport. 

You can train as little or as often as you like. We also have our own wooden horse to train on for free, allowing you to improve your skills quickly.

 We are unique as everyone has the chance to play in the biggest Polo Tournament in the world- SUPA Nationals, no matter your ability. You can play against loads of different universities. We also have the pleasure of training on High-Goal level ponies at Druids Lodge Polo Club.
