VIP Polo Match Experience
Join us for a truly extraordinary experience at London’s oldest polo club. You will have the opportunity to watch competitive polo from either a shared table in the club house or your own smaller table on the lawn outside, should you choose.
Polo is an ancient game dating back to the 6th century BC where it was played by elite cavalry units in Asia as an integral part of their battle training. Today the game remains largely unchanged and is associated with the British aristocracy and royalty - Princes Harry and William are both regular players as was their father Prince Charles.
This is a truly unique experience. You will immerse yourself in the game and culture surrounding it. On arrival at London’s oldest polo club you will be greeted by your host, a member of the club committee, who, over a cool drink will then talk you through the structure of a competitive match. As the afternoon ticks by, you will see some of the world’s highest level sport on the field. There will be at least two competitive matches to watch, each divided into six ‘chukkas’ (seven minute sections). There is an excellent buffet available until 16:00 and all food and drink (excluding champagne) is included in the experience until 20:00.
This truly is a wonderful way to spend a summer's afternoon!
