Polo in AZ

Scottsdale, Arizona

As Good As It Gets: Perfect Weather Is Forecast!


Looking to get in on the action yourself? Think about joining the Arizona Polo Club (APC) or perhaps The United States Polo Association (USPA)! Following The Scottsdale Polo Classic, the Arizona Polo Club will be hosting a polo clinic open to everyone to learn the sport of polo. Time TBD.

Arizona Polo Club

The Arizona Polo Club has been playing on the beautiful Westworld polo field in Scottsdale, Arizona since 1982. The club also offers opportunities to play in indoor facilities generously provided by some of our players for lessons, clinics, and tournaments to accommodate any player’s needs.

Our outdoor and indoor season is played from November through April, and you can see our calendar for the current season online. We invite you to come to Scottsdale Horsemen park at Westworld polo field and watch or participate in some exciting Polo matches. You can join our club and start enjoying polo along with us on the field or watching from the lawn. Polo weekends are enjoyed as tailgate style. You can bring your family, friends and feel comfortable to enjoy the lawn on a blanket or bring some chairs, drinks and food. There is no charge to come and watch the most matches.

APC is a member of the United States Polo Association and is one of 8 clubs of The Border Circuit (Arizona, New Mexico and West Texas). We are very fortunate to have mild winters and great weather for the majority of the year. Here at APC we enjoy playing polo outdoors and indoors (arena polo) in the company of our families and friends. To learn more about APC, click here»Our outdoor and indoor season is played from November through April and you can see our calendar for the current season online.

The United States Polo Association

The United States Polo Association (USPA) was created on March 21, 1890 by H. L. Herbert. It was formed to act as the national governing body for the sport of polo in America and Canada. The USPA is dedicated to growing recognition for polo, organizing tournaments, establishing rules, creating educational programs, coordinating interscholastic and intercollegiate competitions, and providing the handicaps for polo players all over the country.

The organization is continually creating new programs for people to learn the sport and develop American players, as well as maintaining guidelines for the safety and wellbeing of the polo ponies. There are over 250 clubs registered with the USPA and over 4,500 members. The USPA is always growing and building stronger roots for the sport of polo. To learn more about USPA, click here»
