We thoroughly enjoyed the Experience Polo Day at Hertfordshire Polo Club. Everyone there made the day a relaxed and fun experience, the instructors were great fun and the day was very well organised without being regimented. Despite some strong pessimism we were all up on the ponies and playing polo by the end of the day, even those of us who had never seen a horse before! I would highly recommend the day to anyone considering a fun and unique corporate function.
Lilly Milligan – Consultant
Thank you both for a very enjoyable day yesterday. It all ran very smoothly thanks to the great organisation of your team. We have had very positive responses from our guests despite feeling rather sore today! This is definitely an event we will be looking to book again next year!
Alison Walter – Corporate Events Manager
This is an event we would be looking to do again next yearJust a note to say thank you so much for Thursday. It was very well organised and we all really enjoyed it. I had great feedback from all of the team about the day and I will definitely be recommending the activity and the club to other divisions/teams in the company who might be planning team events in the future.
Thank you for organising yet another fun day for us all at Herts Polo Club, two years on our enthusiasm for this day remains unabated. Our guests loved it, surprising themselves as to what they achieved, learning to ride in a day yet alone ending up with a game of polo provides an unrivalled corporate day. A professional, safe and relaxed atmosphere adds to the experience. Thanks again, to all of those involved in making the day a success for us. We will be back in 2009!

I am writing to say how very much I enjoyed our polo introduction last Friday and to thank you so much for your efforts in organising it. I thought that the organisation of the day and the buffet were superb so please extend my thanks to the Club and teachers.
“BLP and their guests thoroughly enjoyed their “BLP Learn to Play Polo Day”. The excellent training by Martin State and Ron Mees during the morning and early afternoon left the team confident and eager for their first chukka at the end of the day. Riders and non-riders alike all learnt new skills and we are looking forward already to our next Polo Day. Mention should also be made of the fortifying barbeque lunch which sustained us between training sessions. Many thanks to Woolmers Park for making us feel so welcome and arranging such a great day”.
Juliet Thomas – Senior Associate
I would like to thank you and all your team for a fantastic evening. Despite a few of our guests having some apprehensions, they all left the Woolmers Park Polo Club with a big smile on their faces and fantastic memories. The organisation was perfect, and the coaching was great- Who would have thought that we could “play” Polo in so little time! Plus the weather spared us…
The barbecue was absolutely great too!
I will definitely (highly) recommend you to all the other teams who need an unforgettable, exciting team activity!
Once again, thank you all for a great evening
Nico Hogeveen – Director On Premise, Pepsico
‘The Polo School team were fantastic. The polo ponies are so well trained that they respond and adjust to their rider’s ability. They put me on a lovely quiet horse and I learnt how to trot – amazing! We also learnt how to use the polo stick and hit the balls. Having watched the professional players we were ready for our own game. The experience was exhilarating and I felt a real sense of achievement – it was great fun.’
Bank Machine Limited
” This was a truly memorable -and relatively inexpensive-day of fun.
From start to finish, everything went well. Excellent tuition was given by friendly club members, covering both riding and “stick” skills. The bounce match between members of our party was fun:the ponies were thankfully more proficient-and calmer- than the riders!
Lunch was first-rate, with a good selection of dishes. After lunch, it was a great pleasure to continue sipping the beautifully chilled wine whilst watching the professional Polo players show us exactly how it should be done!
If there is a better way of spending a Sunny Sunday, I have yet to find it.”
Ron Delnevo – Managing Director
Royal Veterinary College:
“A huge thank you to everyone at Woolmers Park for organising the Royal Veterinary College Summer Polo Weekend. We all had a fantastic weekend and everyone is delighted with how much they have learnt and improved. A special thanks to Martin State for his endless patience and enthusiasm, thanks to which, we may have finally grasped the rules!
It really was a perfect start to the Summer season and we definitely plan to return for another weekend next year.”
Rosie Barker – President of Royal Veterinary College Polo Club

MWB Business Exchange PLC and all of our guests would like to thank you for a brilliant “Experience Polo” day. We all had tremendous fun and are very much looking forward to coming again. Thank you to all those trainers and staff involved who enabled the day to be a great success!! Well done and thank you again.

Taylor Wessing LLP
We wanted to do something completely different, and heard about the “Experience Polo Days”, run by Hertfordshire Polo Club. We had a real mix of clients, some of whom had never ridden at all, others who had been on a horse a few times and one or two who were more experienced. The day was a fantastic success. By the end of it, even the most complete beginner was able to take part in the final “chukka”, and everyone wanted to come back again. As a client event it was a tremendous success and we have arranged three more events for the coming year.

I just wanted to send you both a note to firstly personally thank you for all your help with getting yesterdays experience set up and secondly to pass on the thanks of everyone who attended! We have had so many notes from people saying they thoroughly enjoyed it and have left their colleagues green with envy having told them all about it today! They all commented on how friendly and professional the team at the Club were and that the day far surpassed their expectations in every way.
Lorraine Rushton – National Sales Co-ordinator
“Polo is something that I have always wanted to try. I have bored everybody stupid with the events of our day, how skilled the polo players and ponies are. An absolutely fabulous day!!”
Welwyn Round Table
“We all enjoyed the event and it is definitely one to do again. It was a fantastic evening’s entertainment and an event to be added to next year’s programme. Definitely a hit all round.”
