Harper Adams polo club is a friendly and welcoming club that allows its members to learn an exciting and growing new sport, regardless of whether you ride every day and already play polo, or have never sat on a horse before. University polo is extremely accessible as the usually high costs are subsidised significantly allowing you to take part on a student budget.
This year the clubs continues to be coached by former New Zealand international player and award winning coach, Glynn Henderson. Training sessions take place on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday evenings, allowing members flexibility to choose a time that suits them. Sessions are based at Walford College, Shrewsbury in winter and Shrewsbury Polo Club in summer, which are both around 45 minutes from Harper. Members are encouraged to lift share to support those without their own car.
Members of the polo club compete in three tournaments over the year against other university teams. These tournaments allow us to put our training into practise and are a great weekend away, really helping the club to bond as we support each other. In addition to being a competitive club we have an active social calendar, with weekly socials held in The Honeysuckle Inn and trips to equine events such as polo matches and yard visits.
We would like our members to share social media posts (Instagram, Facebook and Twitter) to help promote our club and sponsors. Additionally, it is expected that all members are respectful to each other, the execs, and other universities. Inclusivity is very important in this club and is shown through this moral boosting comradeship and supporting each other in any way possible. Finally, when you join, you are agreeing that you are under 14 stone, as this is the weight limit for the polo ponies.
