Welcome to the Oxford Polo Club!

The Oxford University Polo Club was founded in 1874, three years after the introduction of polo to Britain, and it continues to be a thriving, prestigious and successful university polo club. With a few exceptions, the Varsity Match against Cambridge has been played since 1878, making it the oldest continuing polo fixture in the western world. OUPC is a relaxed and growing club. We want to encourage students to participate in the sport and offer students very competitive rates for our training sessions. We hold regular lessons throughout the year, not just term-time. During the ‘Arena Season’ we play at East End Farm in North Leigh and during ‘Summer Season’ we are at Kirtlington Polo Park. We liaise with other universities, polo clubs and professional teams to organise competitive chukkas. This all builds up to us competing at the SUPA Winter and Summer Nationals Tournaments against all the other UK university polo teams. However and without any doubt, the highlight of the season is the Varsity Match against Cambridge played on the grounds of Guards Polo Club at the beginning of June. As well as our packed polo schedule, we hold regular and varied socials, gatherings and events as a club to which we invite guests with open arms.
