Summer South Bay Academy Dates Announced!

Learn to Play Polo!  This is the perfect way to learn all the fundamentals of the game. The Academy is geared toward people with or without riding experience that want to learn a new exciting sport and build relationships in the community.  There are two academy sessions – Saturdays at South Bay Polo and Sundays at Menlo Circus Club.  Each academy meets weekly for 9 weeks and each session lasts about an hour and a half. If you miss one, fear not, there are plenty of opportunities for make ups. After each session, you are more than welcome to stay and watch club chukkers and local players play.

We are excited to be offering 2 Polo Academy Sessions this summer – one on Saturdays and one on Sundays. Click here to learn more!  A $250 deposit is required to reserve your spot.  Starting August 10th, we will offer a Tuesday night Academy at Horse Park Polo Club!

We will provide everything you need to get the right start in polo, i.e. professional instructors, well-schooled safe polo ponies and all the equipment. We ask that you outfit yourself with white jeans or breeches, riding boots, gloves and helmet.  Click here for all the information!
