WELCOME TO THE VILLAGES POLO BOOSTER CLUB  INFORMATION PAGE




         Polo is a fascinating and fast pace team sport which captures our attentions and sometimes leaves us breathless. The wonderful and exciting sensation starts to intensify a few minutes before we reach the entrance gate to The Villages Polo Stadium, and when the 1st chukker commences, we focus our attentions on the intense concentration of the players and the agility of their ponies. The players are at one with their ponies, and we are at one with the entire experience. 

Let us cheer together, “There’s no other sport like Polo”
