Our ever-growing club aims to provide fun and affordable polo for anyone studying at Cardiff University, as well as associate members from Cardiff Metropolitan University. The club welcomes everyone, whether you are an experienced polo player or have never sat on a horse before.
The club offers flexible training, usually over the weekend, at Beaufort Polo Club. You can train as often or as infrequently as you like throughout the year. We aim to organise people into groups of similar ability to ensure that everyone gets the most out of the training sessions. Transport is available.
We hold taster sessions annually. The Give-it-a-go session will introduce you to hitting the ball with a mallet, sitting on a wooden horse to practise your swing, and time on horses, putting together all the basics you have learnt.
The two main highlights of the year are the SUPA Championships which are stay-away weekend tournaments against other universities across the UK. Firstly, Winter Nationals are arena championships held in February and, secondly, the outdoor Summer Nationals are on grass in June. Players of all abilities can be entered into an appropriate division in both tournaments. Everyone can get involved!
If you don't think you want to enter into nationals, there are still opportunities to play chukkas and tournaments. We also organise 'friendlies', as well as training chukkas against other university clubs that train at Beaufort Polo Club.
Even if physically playing polo isn't for you, we welcome members to come and support the club's teams and be part of the social side of the club.
Our social events throughout the year are inclusive for all with a variety of activities and events, including:
- Nights at the SU every Wednesday
- Day at Polo
- Games nights
- Joint socials with other sports clubs
Please get in contact with any of the committee members if you would like to join the club or for more information. We look forward to meeting you!
