The main aim for Cambridge County Polo Club has been to create a professional, well organised and efficient club but more importantly to encourage new members to learn to play polo, to create a fun, family orientated club, and to encourage players from other clubs to come and experience the fantastic grounds and facilities that the club has to offer.
Although Cambridge County Polo Club was affiliated in 2008, the 220 acre equestrian farm has been quietly building itself to adopt the polo fraternity of this vastly growing sport in the Cambridgeshire area. The farm houses five polo pitches on grade one soil of black peat. This has unrivalled value to the welfare of limbs and joints and acts as a cushion ride. We also have the added advantage of a great drainage system around the whole farm. Central to the farm is a large reservoir together with water abstraction rights to fully irrigate the polo pitches. The weather conditions of the Gods, from drought to torrential rain, has never disabled any of our tournaments.
Ed Wright owns and manages the club and property. As a farmer he fully understands how to maintain the pitches to the highest level. With the newly formed committee, we seem to have forged a winning antidote to the frustrations of many players and members to create a well organised, professional playing club with outstanding grounds.
The club has almost filled its quota of members with new interest joining from all areas of England who want to play on the best pitches. All levels are welcome and accommodated, as the club can offer instruction, chukkas & tournaments backed up by overnight self-catering holiday lets, A stunning club house which includes disabled toilets and showers, kitchen facilities and social area (The Punt) to a very high standard.
The game of Polo is very addictive, come along and have ago, but be warned, you'll be back time and again!
Cambridge County Polo Club has polo being played all year round and has lots to offer ranging from Polo Livery to Happy Hackers livery. Ideally situated between Cambridge and Newmarket yet nestled in a very quiet secret setting surrounded by hundreds of acres of owned grassland, perfect for hackers seeking safe off road riding.
The equine business has had a steady influence here at CCPC encouraging a complete diversification from farming. The livery stables have expanded over the last twelve years so if you require Livery Yards Cambridgeshire based, we are the perfect home for your horse. We offer top-end stables, holiday cottages, fishing and the Polo Centre with the following facilities.
Two stick and ball grounds

Ponies can be hired for chukkas or tournament weekends on a first come basis. Ponies can be provided or if you have a non-flappable pony you can bring it along, you'll be surprised how much they adapt and enjoy the game.
Although people may call this game 'The Sport Of Kings', it does not necessarily mean that it takes a King to be able to afford an event based at a Polo Club.
The word 'Corporate' doesn't necessarily have to come into play when looking to find a suitable venue for an event. Cambridge County Polo Club set in 220 acres of farmland is the ideal location to hold an event. We offer a diverse range of services to anyone who wants to get involved. From large events of over 1000 people, to small intimate days or half days of less than 10, we can bespoke any day to suit your needs.
We can tailor make a day towards any ideas you may have. We can arrange private parties, group tuition, weddings, corporate hospitality, sponsorship opportunities, charity days, or any new and inventive ideas you may have to spend a day getting involved with the polo.
We can organise an event to include an exhibition match of polo, a few lessons of polo with an informal lunch, or you can even get involved to the max and end the day with a match amongst friends.
