    Rutland Polo Club 2017 Season Update and AGM

    Rutland Polo Clubs’ Plans for 2017

    Dear all,
    I need to tell you of a number of important developments at the club as we look forward to the coming season.  I want to start by describing the essence of the club’s approach:-

    Our Mission Statement - We are a warm and welcoming club, offering a high standard of low goal polo for all to enjoy; non-playing visitors, for whom there is no entry fee, are also most welcome.

    Our Offer

    • Two long-established, beautifully maintained, boarded grounds, with use of a neighbouring practice ground.
    • Eighteen fun and competitive low goal tournaments, including the prestigious 6 goal Westerby Assam Cup, part of the national Victor Ludorum competition.
    • Much attractive silverware, played for over many years, to be taken home by winning teams.
    • Central clubhouse with bar and lunch marquee, both open to non-members.
    • Five Club Matches and mid-week chukkas played on the main grounds, as well as weekend chukkas and umpire instruction.
    • HPA qualified instructor to help aspiring players through instructional chukkas and developing young players through Cottesmore Pony Club Polo.
    • Corporate days can be arranged and spectators are able to watch play from our stand. 

    The club will be holding its AGM at 6.30pm on Sunday 9th April 2017in the Oak Room, upstairs at the Falcon Hotel, Market Square, Uppingham.  The formal AGM will be followed by the Start of the Season Party, which will have presentations of our plans by Tom Collie and Ed Winterton.

    Our Summer Ball will have a Hollywood theme and be at Barnsdale Lodge on Saturday 1st July.  Tickets are £60, but £55 for those 25 years and under.

    I very much look forward to welcoming you to play and/ or just come and enjoy yourself with us in 2017.  Membership rates remain unchanged and we hope you will find our offer attractive.

    Kind regards,

    Simon Marlow-Thomas, Chairman Rutland Polo Club
