About us

The Royal Holloway Polo Club is a friendly, inclusive and tight-knit environment in which to learn a new and dynamic sport. We are open to riders of all abilities, and the club is home to players who have a number of years' experience both with polo and classical riding, plus complete novices when it come to all things equine!

Lessons are completely flexible throughout the week so you can fit them around your studies, and there are always private and group lessons available with Ash Farm's incredible tuition.

Members can play both arena and grass polo; there are many opportunities for playing in matches and friendly competitions, either against fellow RH students or other university teams.

The club attends the SUPA (Schools and Universities Polo Association) Summer and Winter national competitions on an annual basis, these are great ways to meet students from other universities, build friendships and hone your skills! If you don't want to compete, don't worry, we have lots of people come with us just to watch and have a good time.

Events and Activities

  • Flexible weekly at Ash Farm Polo Club
  • Competitive matches against other universities such as SUPA Winter and Summer nationals as well as Varsity
  • Matches against other Royal Holloway students
  • Regular social events open to anyone looking to just get involved and get to know the rest of the club
  • Royal Holloway SU social events such as ‘come in your kit’
  • Larger social events such as ‘Colours Ball’ and other university polo balls.


As a club we have a few different types of memberships on offer. Which one you choose to purchase will depend on how involved you would like to be with the club. 

SUPA is the organisation which we compete at under national level. Everyone is able to compete under SUPA, no matter your experience, and it does not require qualification.  If you know that you will want to play at SUPA nationals, purchasing a full membership plus SUPA will be the best value membership for you. It means that your SUPA membership cost will be covered now, so it is one less thing to think about when entering nationals. If you buy a full membership without SUPA, you can still play at nationals by buying a SUPA membership nearer the time of entering nationals. 

Purchasing a full membership allows you to join in all polo activities and compete, as well as social events. (See above paragraph regarding difference in SUPA inclusions)

We are offering a first month trial membership for those of you who do not want to commit to the full membership right away. If you choose this and then decide to continue playing after the first month, you will then be able to purchase a discounted full membership for the rest of the year. 

A social membership allows you to be part of the polo society through social events but not to actually play.

Please note, membership prices do not include lesson costs, as this is done individually and directly to Ash Farm Polo Club itself.

Membership fees go towards the running and development of the club and help us widen our equipment collection which is all available to members. As a member of the polo club you will be able to represent the university while also meeting a lot of likeminded and fun individuals who share a similar interest to you!
