Polo

Discover Polo, the historic sport of Kings, Queens, nobility and yes, commoners. Like us. At Sky Events we love to offer our clients something different and exciting like the opportunity to learn and take part in this prestigious sport (royal ancestry not required). We combine expert tuition with high end corporate hospitality and our dedicated event management to create an unforgettable and challenging corporate event, not just in the UK, but at Polo Clubs all over the world.

Polo originated in Persia (Iran) as a military training exercise and evolved over centuries to become the exclusive and glamorous sport we know today. We offer our clients the opportunity to get involved and experience this challenging sport, with Polo retreats of any duration and for all levels of rider - even those who have never been aboard seaside donkey, let alone a polo pony! Our aim is to provide you and your clients with new and exciting challenges. We begin with a little theory and game tactics, moving on to standing on crates and perfecting the ‘swing’, and finally mounting the ponies and discovering a whole new world of equestrian fun and competition. When everyone is comfortable in the saddle we hold a chukka challenge to test your new skills. There is no need for previous experience – all you need is a sense of adventure!

Naturally we manage your event from start to finish, ensuring that every aspect of the event runs seamlessly. In addition to Polo, we can arrange all manner of non-equestrian activities in between chukkas. Soothing saddle sore limbs in award winning spas, hot air ballooning and falconry are just a few ideas of activities we can combine to create the perfect corporate event.
