WELCOME TO POLO 101
Polo 101 classes are held at the beginning of the spring and fall seasons, each March and September. They are advertised in the Daily Sun. Tickets are free and required. Two classes are held each season, 1 week apart. These classes are a very fun and entertaining, educational event.
The growth in The Villages over the years has been incredible. There are so many newcomers that have never been exposed to a polo match. The first images that come to mind of attending a polo event are beautifully dressed woman wearing stilettos, big hats and men in linen. Will it be ok to come to a match looking like that, you bet! Will it be ok to come to a match in your jeans, yes! Will it be ok to bring my grandchildren, yes! Will I be able to meet and talk to the players, yes! Sitting in the stadium, or in the tailgating area, you may be confused by what is happening. We have added this copy of a brochure that is usually available at the stadium during a match. It gives you some of the high points of polo play to help you understand what is going on, and you can enjoy the match. Prior to each season, The Villages Polo club hosts a class called Polo 101 which is wonderful introduction to all facets of the game of polo. We highly recommend it to all newcomers.
