COME AND SUPPORT THE HONG KONG POLO TEAM

Player+AreaIn recent years, members of the Hong Kong Society have visited Ham once a year in order to watch this spectacular game and cheer on their own team again. Only eight miles from Hyde Park Corner, Ham is the last remaining polo club in Greater London. Founded in 1926, it has an established and  distinguished reputation for excellent playing and social facilities combined with a relaxed family atmosphere. Exceptionally this year we will also celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the introduction of Polo from India to England in 1869. More details will be in the Match programme.

We plan to organise the day at two levels: one for those who want to have a family, self-catering, relatively inexpensive day out and another level for those who want to spend the day in comfort, sipping enjoyable drinks, having a fuller lunch and watching the polo from seats in a special enclosure.

The main polo match will start at 12.15pm this year and there will be other matches in the afternoon from Ham Polo Club’s Ladies Tournament. Details will be provided with a map in due course.

Costs: There are two plans:
Plan A: £10 per person payable in advance online at: www.hampoloclub.com/tickets or £15pp Pay at Gate on the day. Free for under 13s. Bring your own picnic/chairs/rugs. There is a food kiosk selling good snacks, lunches and drinks (picnic area accepts card payments only).
Plan B: £60 Members’ Enclosure (Price includes day membership and buffet lunch). Sit on the veranda of the Clubhouse, enjoying a two course buffet lunch, less wines, watching in comfort.
