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 lesson 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, using hand mallets or the full length mallets as well as our wooden horse "Woody".
This year we are liaising with other universities as we are keen to organise friendlies with other northern universities and competitive chukkas. All building up to competing at the SUPA Winter and Summer Nationals Tournaments which are held each year against all other UK University Polo Teams.
Along with this packed Polo schedule we hold regular and varied socials. So we all get to know each other and bond as a club.
Polo Lessons at White Rose Polo Club (York) - Weekends and occasional Wednesday/Thursday 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 at White Rose, as well as mini 'Bicycle Polo' Tournaments and 'Wooden Horse' Sessions to be held in Newcastle.
No previous Polo experience is required.
Safety equipment and Polo sticks can be provided by us for competitions and 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.
