About CHANTILLY POLO CLUB (https://www.poloclubchantilly.com) A short distance from Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport, the Chantilly Polo Club is located in a large clearing of one of the royal forests surrounding Paris, on the grounds of the big village farm of Apremont. This club has all the qualities required for world level competitions and is a heaven for the amateur riders who have adopted this ancient team game. Throughout the seasons, sharing the same passion for horses and polo, the founders of the club gather with their children and even their grandchildren. Each year, the number of sports-loving families grows, with new members who discover many famous international players every spring and who love to gather near Paris and appreciate the beauty of the countryside along with the marvels of Chantilly Castle. The quality of our fields and our organization has allowed us to host one World Championship and two European Championships but, above all, our pride is to give junior riders the possibility to learn in full safety, for champions to be provided with the best international standards and for lone riders to be able to enjoy the ideal landscape of Picardie, just 40 minutes away from the Eiffel tower, and to appreciate the silence of endless meadows and the calm of the countryside.
