Welcome to the University Polo team

Can you walk, trot and canter on a horse and fancy trying something new? Have you previously played polo and want to improve your game? Do you want to make friends for life? No matter if you're a complete beginner or an experienced player, the University of Liverpool Polo club wants you.


Lessons take place twice a week in groups of six with Hendersons Polo. The club competes in winter and summer national competitions as well as various friendly tournaments throughout the year.

Social Events

We believe that socials are a vital part of polo at the University of Liverpool. We aim to hold socials most Wednesday nights and take part in monthly Athletic Union (AU) fancy dress nights. Socials range from wine and cheese to pub golf, to chilled pizza nights, so there is something for everyone!
