Team Newcastle Polo Club is a relaxed and growing club. Our club is all about encouraging students to have a go and making Polo accessible to all students who want to get involved, taking advantage of the reduced leson rates and prices available to students. We want to shake off the stuffy/elite image that follows Polo.
We hold regular lessons throughout term time at White Rose Polo Club, both during the "Arena Season" and "Summer Season". Once the summer term kicks in we organise small groups for practice "stick and ball" sessions at Border Reivers Polo Club. As well as liaising with other universities to organise competitive chukkas. This all builds up to us competing at the SUPA Winter and Summer Nationals Tournaments against all the other UK university Polo teams.
As well as our packed Polo schedule, we hold regular and varied socials as a club to get to know each other.
Polo Lessons at White Rose Polo Club (York) - Weekends and occasional Wednesday afternoons (consisting of Stick and Balling under tuition and a long Instructional Chukka)
There may also be opportunities to play Chukkas agaist other local universities, as well as mini "Bicycle Polo Tournaments" and "Wooden Horse Sessions" to be held in Newcastle.
Safety equipment and Polo sticks can be provided by White Rose Polo Club for lessons.
Sturdy footwear with a small heel (NOT Trainers or similar) should be worn as well as Jeans/Jodhpurs, Riding/Jodhpur boots are ideal if you have them.
