Learn to Play Polo

 

We offer several affordable formats for tuition so we can provide the right type of coaching for an individual's level of ability, fitness and athletic skill.

 

We welcome non-riders – about 65% of those we teach have never ridden before – and we provide all the necessary equipment, including specially trained (and understanding!) ponies.

Top class coaching enables even non-riders to take part in their first chukka within one session.

Therefore, all you need to enjoy the Sport of Kings is a sense of fun and adventure. No membership is required to take part in any of our training activities listed below.

 

 

Discover Polo Package

 

This is the ideal starting point where we take you through all the basics of the game. This lesson only needs to be taken once. The course is available privately or in small groups and comprises - Polo riding, use of the stick for the four shots, rules of the game, stick & ball practice on ponies and the theory of the game. Discover Polo runs every other weekend year round.

 

 

 

Private Lessons

 

This allows your instructor to identify and discuss your strengths and weaknesses and address them accordingly. Whether it's stick work or riding, coaching is essential if the correct techniques are to be developed. Most clients take a mix of coaching lessons and Instructional (Stage Two) or Academy Chukkas (Stage Four) which ensure enhancement of both individual skills and the understanding of team play and rules.

 

 

Instructional Chukkas

 

Following your Introductory Lesson you can progress to playing in these entry level chukkas in Europe's largest all-weather polo arena. There are two aims -to enjoy playing competitive polo and to put into practice all the skills you have learned. You can book anything from 1-4 chukkas on a Saturday or Sunday morning at 11:30am depending on just how quickly you want to progress.

 

 

Academy Chukkas

 

Play the game with other competent players, under the eye of instructors who will offer advice and instruction whilst you play. In conjunction with private or group lessons, these advanced training chukkas played on a two-thirds size lawn pitch will allow you the excitement of playing the game whilst rapidly developing your polo prowess. These chukkas are also available for Ladies only during the week.

 

 

Club Membership & beyond!

 

Once you have gained the necessary skills and ability, through stages 1-4, you will then be ready to join as a full playing member of not just ours but any polo club around the world. You can then enjoy practice chukkas, champagne challenges and enter into tournaments at polo clubs. Polo is enjoying rapid growth around the world and you will now have your passport to join in The King of Games. Arena Polo is played throughout the winter months so you can join the team at any time of the year.

 

 

Safety and Insurance

 

Our paramount consideration is safety. So, all the initial coaching takes place in our all-weather enclosed arena, the largest polo arena in Europe.

 

All our instructors are registered with the Hurlingham Polo Association which is the governing body for polo.

We are also a member of The Association Of Polo Schools and Pony Hirers as we hold a current Riding Establishment License and a comprehensive insurance policy.
