About Us

Oxford University Polo Club was founded in 1874, just three years after the introduction of polo to Britain, and it continues to be a thriving and successful club, creating history in the polo world to this very day. The Varsity Match against Cambridge has been played since 1874, making it the oldest continuing polo fixture in the western world.

Despite its prestigious history, OUPC is a relaxed and sociable club, an encourages students from all backgrounds to participate in the sport, whether they are complete beginners or seasoned professionals. We hold regular lessons throughout the year with David Ashby and his team at ‘Oxford Polo’ and organise both friendly and competitive matches and tournaments – at all levels – with other universities, polo clubs and professional teams.

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, the highlight of which is our annual white-tie ball.
