Information and prices

Ascot Park Polo Club

Go from novice to playing in a Polo match in just one day

As part of the “Learn to Play Polo” Experience, we will lead
your group through a graduated programme of learning the rules and
tactics, the polo swing and polo riding.

Then after some ‘stick and ball’ practice at hitting the ball
from the pony, you will play some chukkas to put your new skills
into practice and have some fun!

After lunch you can relax and enjoy watching the Ascot Park
professionals play an exhibition match at full speed before a final
afternoon tea and a Champagne prize giving for your teams.

The “Learn to Play Polo” Experience can be arranged in a
Full Day or Half Day.

Theory
Learn the rules, discuss team tactics and positional plays
using a board and miniature men and horses before getting started
with the horses.

Crates
Standing on a crates, practice the polo swing without worrying
about the horse. Practice the four basic polo strokes under the
careful watch of our qualified instructors.

Short Sticks
Using short polo sticks play a game on your feet to
practice rules, team tactics and ball hitting. As each polo team
has four players on grass and three in the arena, it’s vital
each individual works as a cohesive unit with his/her team mates to
try to win.

Polo Riding
Mounted on very quiet, safe horses geared to your riding
experience, to practice initially the riding then the hitting of
the ball under instruction. Learn to move, stop and turn your polo
pony.

Chukkas
Everyone has the opportunity to play a ‘mini game’ with an
instructor on each team. The team scoring most goals wins. Your
opportunity to experience the tactics and team play involved in
playing the game

Lunch and Drinks
And finally, a well earned lunch and drinks to finish off
the morning and before watching the exhibition match in the
afternoon.
