A unique opportunity awaits those eager to learn the world's oldest and fastest team games. Whether you are new to the sport or wish to finely tune your existing skills, our highly qualified Academy instructors will ensure you gain the optimum benefits from your time with us by assessing your ability and providing suitable training. Polo is a demanding sport, requiring good horsemanship, excellent physical condition, regular training and familiarity with game rules and technical aspects. The Dubai Polo Academy offers a practical approach to each of these aspects, so beginners can rapidly integrate into a team and play in a match.

Step 1: Intro to Polo

Whether you're looking for that once in a lifetime experience or hoping to take up the sport, this is the perfect introduction to the game. During this one and half hour session, you will receive expert tuition on the three fundamentals that make up Polo – riding, hitting and rules. The Academy ponies are impeccably trained and exceptionally obedient allowing even a complete novice to experience the thrills of Polo first hand for themselves. Absolutely no prior riding experience is necessary and you will be astonished by your achievements.

Step 2: Private Lesson

Private sessions are intense and designed to work on your individual skills. This one on one program is best suited for players looking to focus on improving specific elements of YOUR all around game.

Step 2: Group Lesson

Polo is after all a team sport and what better way to share your experience than with other aspiring players of similar ability. Group lessons will teach you how to apply your individual skills in a simulated game. These lessons are packed with essential exercises that ensure progression within a fun and friendly environment.

Step 3: Stick & Ball Practice

You are on your own! Having succeeded in mastering all the fundamentals and basic shots it is now time to practice. Stick and ball sessions will allow an individual time in the saddle to build up essential hitting muscle memory and to allow you to develop your own personal style.

You Graduated!

Step 4: Instructional Chukkas

You've graduated! Its now time to put all your hard work and skills to the test. Individuals are assembled into teams of similar experience or ability and then the basics of the game are simulated in a friendly match.
