As an organisation we welcome participation from any and all abilities and experience within this exciting sporting field. The club offers a range of activities including lessons, inter-university competitions, days-trips and socials. Our training is held at Offchurch Bury Polo Club, whose stunning grounds are situated just outside Leamington, so it couldn't be easier to take part as it is walking distance from Leamington and lifts from Campus are provided daily.
In 2012/13 we took 8 Winter & 6 Summer teams to Nationals; our Beginner 2 team came second and our Novice 2 team came second at summer nationals, at winter nationals our Beginner 1 team dominated as National Championship winners.
Our speciality is with total newcomers so please do not hesitate to sign up if you've never played before or have limited/ no riding experience- if you have ridden before don't worry we cater for that as well, with a wide variety of lessons and levels of play.

What we do:
Competing : We have an increasing number of University teams, playing in two major tournaments per year, the Winter and Summer University National Championships. These tournaments, organised by SUPA (Schools and Universities Polo Association) are the main focus of the year, as well as the Club's major expense.
Learning : We have many learning members, to whom we offer lessons at competitive student rates. We have so many members keen to learn that we are running lessons daily so you can play whenever you wish, and taster sessions are available for those who just want to give polo a go. Lessons cost £25 per session in the first term as we try to subsidise them, when these run out the lessons increase by £5 to £30 a session; still excellent value for a polo lesson, which is typically more than £75!!
Socialising: The Warwick Polo Club also has a buzzing social side, with many members, both playing and social, attending a wide variety of events ranging from Argentine barbecues after summer matches, to club dinners in Leamington Spa, to drinks and exciting circling games in the Student Union. Please join, it will be an experience you will not regret!
