Founded in 1886, during Singapore's colonial past, the Club has a long and fascinating history. Set in acres of lush, tropical grounds, the Singapore Polo Club is a world apart from Singapore's bustling pace yet located just minutes from the heart of the city's hectic business and commercial centre. The old world, rustic charm of the clubhouse with its open verandah and views of tropical greenery and open spaces provides a relaxing and understated, natural ambience.
The main focus of the Club is of course polo and more generally, equestrian sports, but other sports activities and facilities are also well represented. Members can either keep their own polo ponies at the club stables, or alternatively lease ponies from the Club's own string. Beginners, or those wishing to hone their skills may sign up for polo lessons with the Club's resident pros. For those interested primarily in horse riding, you can participate in any of the Club's varied Riding Section programmes and activities including basic riding, competitive dressage as well as show jumping at various levels, either in one to one or group lessons with our qualified riding instructors.
You may also choose to enjoy the pleasure of simply hacking along a wide selection of jungle trails that are accessible from the Club.
