Universities polo with SUPA

What we do

SUPA for Universities

Welcome to the Universities Section.

If your university is not currently a member, ask your Director of Sports to register and sign up. We hold two National Championships a year and friendly matches inbetween.  Our National Arena Championships are held at the beginning of February at Rugby Polo Club, spread over 4 days in 2 arenas.  We welcome universities and college players of all levels from all over the UK and competition is fierce.

In June we host the grass Championships at Offchurchbury Polo Club over 3 days and 2 pitches.    The sight of 400 players and 50 chukkas a day is awe inspiring.

During our Championships we host International tournaments and long standing friendships have been forged at our events.  Our themed player parties, organised by the venues are legendary!

You do not need to own a pony to be a part of the SUPA family.  There are plenty of Polo Schools out there, with brilliant coaches and lovely horses who will teach you and hire a pony to you so that you can compete.  To find your nearest affiliated club, HPA school/Academy visit the HPA website.

You can also join in with Pony Club Polo, giving you access to more polo during the school holidays.

You can still join SUPA even if your university/college does not have a polo club, we welcome everyone of all abilities.
