Polo Club

Edinburgh University Polo Club welcomes everyone from experienced polo players to complete riding beginners.

COVID UPDATE -  Following Government and University guidlines we are currently running strictly non-contact lessons of up to 6 players and non-contact chukkas. At the yard your temperature will be taken on arrival, social distancing must be maintained at all times and no one may enter the tack room. The track and tracing is recorded via the lesson & chukka sign up sheets. Please also see our policy around Covid below.

FOR NEW MEMBERS - For all of this semester everyone is welcome to sign up to their first lesson without buying the membership in lieu of the usual Taster Week and open day. Come down to see the yard, meet our committee, instructor and ponies, and give polo a go! If you enjoy yourself and want to sign up to more lessons, chukkas, and competitions then just purchase your membership and stay updated via both our Facebook page and Facebook group.

LESSONS & CHUKKAS - Lessons are currently being run on every day but Sunday. Practice chukkas are also being run weekly, with all the details on the Facebook page. Lessons and chukkas can be paid for individually, bought in mulitples at a lower price or earned through our work-to-ride scheme. If you want anymore information about working to ride or purchasing lessons then do get in contact with us.

Throughout the year we participate in Scottish Student Sports Polo, SUPA Nationals, beach polo, varsity matches and a Scottish Universities beginners league to name but a few! Like our page on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/EUPoloClub) to sign up to lessons and to keep up to date with all our competitions and socials.

CONTACT: If you have any questions then please e-mail us at polo.club@ed.ac.uk or message our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/EUPoloClub).


If you contract Covid, are self isolating, or have received a test result (negative or positive) please let us know so we can update our records. 

DO NOT attend lessons if you have ANY symptoms and for the two weeks after your first symptoms unless you can prove that you and your household have negative test results. It is COMPULSORY to social distance at all times at the yard. Do not go into the tack room. 

If you find out that you, or someone you live with, has Covid or needs to self isolate having already been to the yard because of contact at a time before attending the yard then you must let both the committee and James know immediately. 

If anyone comes to the yard when they HAVE SYMPTOMS, are SELF-ISOLATING, are AWAITING A TEST RESULT or KNOW THEY HAVE COVID they will be BANNED from the club immediately with no refund given on membership, removal from all groups and pages, and no opportunity to re-join until at least the next academic year.


Should an individual require a refund – this can only be done by the club you have joined in cash or cheque (at their own discretion). The Sports Union Membership cannot be refunded, and neither can the transaction fee.
