After a fantastically successful summer season, we are swapping our show jackets and riding crops for mallets and helmets and gearing up for the start of our eighth arena polo season. Preparations for the Christmas party season are also gathering pace, and with European gold medals to celebrate this year we can't wait for the glitter and glamour of the Hickstead Riders' Ball! Read on to discover all that is coming up at Hickstead before the end of the year and make sure you pen our 2014 horse show dates into next year's calendar...

Join us at the All England Polo Club's Taster Days...

Hickstead's All England Polo Club opens its gates for the start of its eighth arena polo season with two polo taster weekends so that you too can come and try your hand at the sport of kings.

Polo Taster Days: 26th - 27th October & 2nd - 3rd November 2013

Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned pro, you are welcome to join us for a tour of the facilities and to meet our club members and instructors. Visitors will learn all about our polo school and the many tuition opportunities from short courses and 'Discover Polo' lessons, to instructional chukkas, challenge matches and tournaments. There is no charge to play chukkas at the taster days, and all the polo staff will be on hand to answer any questions in relation to livery, polo corporate days, social events and good old AEPC club life! Admission and car parking are entirely free of charge and everybody is welcome!
