Great Polo Weekend!
Last Saturday we could welcome many new polistas to another Polo Tryout-Day. Everyone enjoyed the beautiful day, did real great on the polo pony and had much fun. We are pretty sure to see many again at further polo courses. On Sunday we played club Chukkers and enjoyed a wonderful Assado!
NEW: The Polo Seasonal Ticket!
Last week we dropped the bomb: From now on there is the possibility to play for our monthly fixed price in our polo club! The Polo subscription starts at just EUR 149, – per month for children and adolescents and the price hardly increases even with adults. The goal is to make polo accessible to as many people as possible. With the Polo subscription you can play polo throughout the week (except course days and events). The only prerequisite: A polo beginner course + advanced course / individual lesson (s) must have been completed. This is necessary to ensure safe handling of the horses. More information about the Polo subscription can be found here: http://poloaustria.com/das-polo-abo
Easter Polo Trophy for Kids & Teens
From the 26th to the 27th of March we organized an Easter Polo Trophy for children and adolescents. While the polo skills were refreshed on the first day, polo teacher Gudrun prepared a little Easter quest and more games on the second day. All participants obviously had fun. Also our little Easter presents were well received. In this spirit, we wish all our friends and Polistas a happy Easter! In the middle of April we continue with a polo taster day and a polo beginner course, there are still a few places available!

Good news reached us from the Styrian University Sports Center: The USI polo course in this summer semester is fully booked!

Alternatively, we can also recommend the Friday Student Polo. Interested students can simply send an email to email@example.com and we will contact you with further information.
Snow Polo @ A Quechua Poloclub

Welcome to the Polo Blog of our poloschool!
Of course, our polo blog refers to activities, publications, awards and all other important events around our beautiful polo school in Kumberg near Graz. Since we are of course proud of our facility, we would like to keep these special events in this polo blog. In contrast to many other (also Polo specific) blogs, there are no fixed publication times and dates. Whenever something worth mentioning happens, we keep it here. We would also like to save you from reading unnecessary phrases or non-significant postings. We hope this polo blog will help you to get an even better picture of our polo school.
See you on the field!
