University of Brighton Polo Team
University of Brighton
Welcome to the University of Brighton Polo Team – the most affordable University Polo Team in the UK
We provide accessible, affordable and fun polo for those studying at the University of Brighton.
Even if you aren't able to/don't want to ride and play polo, we also have non-playing Social Members who are welcome to join us at all of the exciting events we have scheduled this year across the Brighton and Eastbourne Campus! A bottle of fizz is never far away though with all of these events open to anyone, feel free to bring friends along and it is a great chance to be part of our Polo Family!
Through the year we compete in both friendly and official tournaments and leagues with the highlight being the SUPA (Schools and Universities Polo Association) tournaments in February and June alongside well over 45 Universities. We also want to hold onto our title as Winners of the South Region throughout this year.
The club trains throughout the year on Wednesday evenings and at weekends in hour long training sessions at FHM Polo (20 mins away from the Brighton Campus) and Hickstead Polo Club (15 minutes from Brighton). The coach is highly trained and well qualified to cater for all levels and abilities from complete beginners through to experienced riders and players and we hold lessons based on experience and ability.
There's no need to own your own pony or to have even sat on a horse, you just need a riding helmet and you're ready to go!
