Regardless of ability or experience level, getting involved in chukkas adds an exciting new dimension to the sport of polo for all players. Our unique instructional chukka program is designed to provide a nurturing yet challenging environment in which players can develop their skills through practice. This allows players to experience the atmosphere of a game of polo whilst still having the support and guidance of your coach as you would in lessons. Our clients are introduced to chukkas in an environment suited to their level, at an appropriate time to progress their game. Chukkas run regularly throughout the week, and are most effective when played in conjunction with lessons; maintaining a balance of skills training and gameplay to ensure comprehensive progression.

We have two levels of instructional chukkas;

Foundation Chukkas

Foundation chukkas are our introductory level of chukkas, designed exclusively for players who are ready to practice their newly evolving skills in a game situation. Interspersed with regular lessons, these chukkas are the ideal way to kickstart realistic gameplay alongside others of a similar experience level, without feeling the pressure of speed. These chukkas predominantly aim to instil confidence and provide support in a more competitive and contextual environment. One pony is provided for Foundation Chukkas, and they are the ideal environment for the less experienced player to progress their skills and game play, with the aim to progress to Farm Chukkas.

Farm Chukkas

Farm Chukkas raise the level of play, whilst keeping the relaxed atmosphere you expect from farm polo. As always, our focus is on the progression of players. With professional guidance throughout every chukka, there is a strong focus on tactical awareness, as we teach you how to structure your play and increase your effectiveness as a team.

We developed our chukka program as an alternative to Club Chukkas, where most people play to exercise ponies and themselves. Farm Chukkas allow the speed of play to increase to the next level, without losing the support of extensive coaching. We continue to dissect play and construct tactical situations in context, maximising the progression of the both the individual player, and the game play itself.
Farm Chukkas bridge the gap between foundation Chukkas and competitive polo.

Two ponies are provided for the 45 minute session to allow the speed and level of play to increase.

Winter Polo

What happens in the winter when the temperature drops and we can no longer play on grass?  Polo doesn’t have to stop just because the weather gets cold and the nights draw in: through the winter we switch to arena polo and continue our schedule of chukkas.

While a little different to polo on grass, arena polo is the perfect way to continue to apply the skills acquired in your lessons to a game situation through the winter months.  Learn how to adapt your game to the different space of the arena and learn some new tactics and riding skills along the way.
