  • The Club

    A brief overview of our history and what we provide!

    HISTORY

    The Edinburgh University Polo Club was founded in 1995 by Mark Emerson and James O'Connell.

     

    Our integral aim is to provide affordable polo lessons regardless of ability and to aid the development of the game in Scotland. As a friendly and relaxed society we welcome players of all levels.

    LESSONS AND EQUIPMENT

    All polo lessons are provided by James Douglas at the Dalmahoy Marriott Country Club, Edinburgh.

     

    Ponies of all levels and required equipment from hats to mallets are provided.

     

    APPROPRIATE FOOTWEAR CANNOT BE SUPPLIED SO WE RECOMMEND A SHOE/BOOT THAT HAS A HEEL.
