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 year’s experience both with polo and classical riding, plus complete novices when it come to all things equine!

Lessons are available at a range of times throughout the week either privately or in groups with the fantastic tuition from Ash Farm.

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

The club aims to attend the 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!

Membership

As a society we have two different types of membership: standard and social. Purchasing a standard membership allows you to join in with all polo activities and lessons, as well as socially.

A social membership allows you to be part of the polo society through social events but not to actually play, as to play the membership costs more to cover insurance costs. However membership prices do not include lesson costs, as this is done individually and directly to Ash Farm itself.

Both membership fees go towards the running and development of the club and subsidising certain events such as nationals. As a member of Polo 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!
