Oxford University Polo Club

Oxford University Polo Club combines young players of all abilities from those who have never played before to seasoned professionals. The Club provides a relaxed environment where the key aim is to enjoy polo whilst promoting competition at the highest university levels, both nationally and internationally. In Michaelmas and Hilary terms arena polo is played and then in trinity the club moves back out to the grass.

The polo varsity is one of the oldest varsity events at the university, having been first played in 1878. Polo can be an expensive sport but as a university club catering for students OUPC makes polo as accessible as possible for anyone who is interested. OUPC relies on grants and the generosity of alumni to keep the club afloat.
