THE POLO BALL
The annual OUPC white-tie ball is the highlight of the polo social calendar. The ball sees current and former members, polo players from universities across the world, and even ponies, come together to celebrate one of the world's oldest polo clubs. OUPC is one of the few sports clubs in Oxford to host their own ball.
On Saturday, 29th February 2020 the club hosted its 6th annual ball at Waddesdon Manor - built in the years 1874-89 by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild, it is now owned by the National Trust and one of their most visited properties. In the past, the ball has been held at locations such as Blenheim Palace and the Tower of London.
In past years, the OUPC ball has attracted 250 university students and alumni from Oxford and other universities across the globe, including Cambridge, Harvard and Yale. Previous OUPC balls have seen publications such as Tatler, Polo Times and Town & Country in attendance.
