Welcome to Cambridge County Polo Club, nestling in an idyllic rural setting of 220 acres of polo estate, between Cambridge and Newmarket, close to Anglesey Abbey. The Polo Club boasts five pristine polo grounds laid on black peat, to cushion the ponies limbs. Our exciting family orientated Polo & Picnic Days allow our weekend polo tournaments to be enjoyed by the public and players alike with our Pitchside Bar forming the hub of activities. The social side of the club is enjoyed by its members, and it centres itself around the oak framed club house with its unique Punt Room.
Cambridge County Polo Club is the home of the Cambridge University Polo Club. Founded in 1873 Cambridge University Polo Club is the oldest polo club in Europe. The CUPC ponies are supplied by our Polo Manager Fabio Lavinia and the University Polo team is coached by our very own professional coach Francis Molyneux. We are proud to be associated with this historic Polo Club and delighted they have made Cambridge County Polo Club their home.
Cambridge County Polo Club, was established in 2008 by Ed Wright, a polo playing farmer. He decided to create a well organised, professional playing club in these outstanding grounds. As a farmer he fully understands how to maintain the pitches to the highest level, the grade one soil cushions impact for the welfare of the polo pony’s limbs and joints. Ed enjoys encouraging new members to learn to play polo, in this fun, family orientated club, but warns the game can be addictive. He and his partner Sarah jointly manage the club and in addition to the Polo and Picnic Days they will be hosting corporate events, in the grounds and The Punt Room, the stunning oak framed club house.
