Newcastle University Polo Club is a relatively new club that is growing each year. Our Club is relaxed and wants to shake off the stuffy image that polo is for the elite. We want to encourage students to have a go and get involved, taking advantage of the reduced leson rates and prices that are available to students.
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, 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.
