Guards Polo Club (pictured) was founded on January 25, 1955 with Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, as president.

Only eight miles from Hyde Park Corner, Ham Polo Club is the last remaining polo club in Greater London. Founded in 1926, it has an established and distinguished reputation at over 85 years old. Known for excellent playing and social facilities combined with a relaxed family atmosphere.

A hidden gem at the foot of the Surrey Hills, Hurtwood Park is owned by Faces drummer Kenney Jones. While the clubhouse at its heart is certainly impressive, it actually started life as a twisted old barn in Ockley before Kenney picked it up and rebuilt it himself. Today, the club that grew out of his vision now plays host to the great and the good of polo, including Prince Charles and his sons. Highlights this year include the Itchycoo Park Festival in June and Polo Rocks in July.
