WATCH THE SCROLLNG MARQUEE ON THE HOME PAGE FOR HOME GAME TIMES

Spectators are ALWAYS welcome at all events, and the following is some information
for you if you plan to attend a polo event.

It's a good idea to bring lawn chairs or blankets, and you may want to bring beverages and snacks as there's no place nearby to purchase them.

We have a couple of rules for our visitors too: It's extremely important that you keep a close eye on children who come with you. They should never be on or too close to the field or to horses. Polo balls are often hit hard and long and they can travel well beyond the side lines. We also ask that you please be careful not to shake blankets or open umbrellas if there is a horse nearby, and please be careful of blowing paper or other objects which might frighten the horses. That's it!

GAMES

Saturday games typically begin between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. (at least by 11:00 a.m. if there are 2 games). Sunday games are usually the same but will sometimes start earlier if the visiting team has a long drive home after the games are over. Heat and rain have a big effect on game times. If you plan to attend, it's a good idea to check the ticker on our homepage the morning of the game for more specific information.

SCHEDULES ARE ALWAYS SUBJECT TO CHANGE!

Polo on the Green is held annually in August or September. It's the only event which requires an admission fee. This event is a fundraiser for Variety-The Children's Charity (formerly Variety Club of Iowa.) For more information on Polo on the Green, please feel free to contact the Variety office at 515-243-4660.

SCRIMMAGES/PRACTICE

Beginning the first Sunday in May, the club members will attempt to have regular scrimmages on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday evenings around 6:00 p.m. As with games, weather usually determines if they will practice. If there has been much rain, the horses can be very damaging to the field, so spring practices are often changed or cancelled. As with games, spectators are welcome.
