Welcome to Stanford Polo!

Welcome to the official home of Stanford Polo Club, one of the oldest club sports at Stanford University.  Stanford Polo Club was founded in 1919 as part of the field artillery program for Stanford R.O.T.C., and while the club has undergone many transformations over the years and is no longer associated the military, it has stayed true to its legacy of strong student development, hard work, and the pursuit of excellence in polo.  The Polo Club offers students the opportunity to learn about riding and polo, horse care and barn management, and it helps fulfill Stanford’s goal of providing a truly broad education.  Day to day operation of the club is managed entirely by students, and with the help of dedicated volunteer coaches and a visionary advisory board, the Polo Club has continued to grow and develop into a more and more successful organization.  This dedication has been rewarded by several Regional Championships and appearances at the National Intercollegiate Championship, and club members look forward to more victories in the future.

New Members!

The Stanford Polo Club is excited to welcome the incoming new members to the team! After three weeks of intense tryouts, riding lessons, and practices, the men’s and women’s teams finalized their rosters on Monday night last week. While our new members range in ability, their overall energy and enthusiasm are undeniable and we eagerly wait to see what contributions they will make to our team.

The Stanford Polo Club would like to thank everyone who came out for tryouts this year. We were pleased by both the excitement and commitment seen during tryouts and cannot wait to see our new members continue to grow and advance in their polo abilities. As tryouts come to an end, we are now looking forward and preparing for the upcoming season. This weekend marks the first of many scrimmages, with both teams traveling to the Mustang Madness tournament.
