We offer an accessible and affordable way to play polo whilst in University.
The club caters for all abilities, from complete beginner to seasoned professionals.
We train at Rugby Polo Club (CV23 8AJ) and Leadenham Polo Club (LN5 0PX), and compete in matches and tournaments throughout the year, including SUPA/ SAPA.
Horses can be hired for both lessons and tournaments, there is no need to own your own.
If you are going to be joining LSPC this September, come and say hello at the Fresher's Fair on the 29th September to sign yourself up for a taster.
Throughout the year LSPC compete in a variety of tournaments and matches, including the legendary SUPA Summer and Winter Nationals. Members are categorised into four divisions depending on their level of play.
Training takes place twice a week, Wednesday afternoon and either Saturday or Sunday.
