Welcome to the Birmingham City University Polo Club.

BCU Polo (Est. 2013) brings the excitement of 'The Sport of Kings' to those studying at BCU

Our members range from complete beginners ( have never sat on a horse) to the seasoned player. You don't need to own a polo pony to join. The club offers a fantastic oppotunity to learn how to play polo at an affordable price. 


Polo Lessons

Polo lessons are usually every Tuesday and Friday at Offchuch Bury Polo Club (OBPC). But this changes between the summer and the winter season. Lessons cover technique, riding, rules, tactics and polo skills. Each lesson is delivered by a qualified HPA Polo instructor. We are able to have lessons on any day of the week provided there's a least 4 people attending. The cost  per lessoon is £25 for beginners and £30 for novices.  

Lessons last for one hour and are tremendous fun!

Polo Tournaments

We have two main tournaments per year, both organised by the Schools & Universities Polo Association (SUPA). One is held in winter, at Rugby Polo Club and the other in Summer at Offchurch Bury Polo Club (OCBPC). This is a chance to compete against the other University Polo teams throughtout the country. It is also a fantastic social event where everyone has the same thing in common, the love for polo.
