Polo is a crazy sport. Players tear around the field on horseback trying to knock a ball with huge swinging mallets. Not everyone's lucky enough to own a horse, so the barrier to participation makes it largely a spectator sport – some people simply go for the trend-spotting and shoulder-rubbing.
At Flinders Polo, get acquainted with a new three-a-side format – PoloX – started by Portsea Polo, which features a larger ball and a lightning-fast pace. The top two teams will complete for the Flinders PoloX Grand Final Cup.
There are a few ticket options available: feast on shucked-to-order Blackman Bay oysters, platters packed with Mornington Peninsula produce and mini cannoli in the Provincial Home Living Lounge; pull up to a Car Boot Picnic Site and get a private marquee for you and 12 mates; or secure a trackside spot in a Corporate Marquee for a minimum of 30 people.
All guests can wander the grounds designed by revered landscape architect, Paul Bangay. Explore beautiful walled and hedged gardens, tennis courts and a pool area.
