Polo

‘Horses give us the wings we lack’.

Who plays? Number of institutions competing in Scottish leagues: 7

What is there? Outdoor summer season as well as in indoor (arena) winter season. The national governing body for student polo events is the Schools and Universities Polo Association (SUPA). SUPA hosts two large national competitions each year at Rugby Polo Club and Offchurch Bury Polo Club. As SUPA do not currently run any competitions in Scotland, a number of Scottish universities have been very proactive in organising a Scottish league and setting up inter-university tournaments

When does all this happen? Polo is played 4-aside outdoor during the summer season (May-September) and 3-aside in the arena during the winter season (October-April). Matches are split into 7 and a half minute periods called chukkas.
