Club members 2016/17
The University of Birmingham Polo Club is a sociable and successful club and we encourage anyone from professional riders to complete non-rider’s to get involved. The Polo club only started in 2008 and since then has grown from strength to strength with an ever increasing number of members. In 2018 The Polo Club also launched Polocrosse, which gives members an opportunity for Polocrosse lessons and the chance to play competitively.
The club mainly trains on a Wednesday afternoon at Rugby Polo Club, however there is always an opportunity to train on other weekdays and the weekend. There are two main University competitions and the Polo club attends both of them, one being Winter Nationals and the other being Summer Nationals. University of Birmingham Polo club has also been responsible for setting up the University league, which gives Universities around the Midlands to arrange Chukkas against each other throughout the year.
