About the club

The All England Polo Club was founded in 2006, and Hickstead quickly became established as one of the premier venues in the country. Nicholas Colquhoun-Denvers, the former Chairman of the HPA, delighted at the arena facility declaring that ‘Hickstead has created one of the most modern and impressive arenas in the country. Not only has it hosted very successful international matches but it has worked hard to encourage the young to play.’ The club also includes a polo school as well as a full stable of pony rentals.

The AEPC is renowned for introducing both accomplished riders and absolute beginners to polo, making the sport accessible and affordable to all.

Discover Polo Lessons
The club’s ‘Discover Polo’ lessons are designed to get newcomers started in the sport gently, under the expert tuition of the club’s instructor. The instructor begins by making the newcomer familiar with the basic rules and principles of the game and the three player positions, before practicing polo swinging and hitting techniques with a hand mallet on foot in the arena. Geared to the newcomer’s level of riding experience and aboard one of the club’s very quiet, safe ponies, the newcomer will be taught the art of riding for polo; perfecting his position, learning how to steer, stop and turn his steed, and mastering how to hold all those reins in one hand! Next the club puts all that stick and ball practice on the ground to the test and exercise the newcomer’s new found polo swing and hitting skills at the walk, trot or canter from the back of the pony!

£75 per person incl. tuition and pony rental (one hour duration)
