Winter Season

Those long, sunny days seem a long time ago as I sit in the office writing this with the wind blowing like crazy outside but just because the days are colder the action has not cooled down. After our end of season break we are back full throttle into Winter season.

This week we welcomed back all the university students from last year and met a whole lot of new university teams this year.

Many of our Summer members are continuing through the Winter as this really is the best time to improve your Polo and get it upgraded a level by the Summer. Year after year we see those who continued to play the arena season reaping the rewards when we hit the grass in April.

As always we continue to offer lessons for beginners through the Winter so if you are tempted to have a go,now really is the best time to start so you are up and runnig in time for Summer.

We have have full social calendar planned starting off with the change of season dinner and the fabulous new restaurant Scott’s which has opened in the marina in South Queensferry.

Come and join us for an action packed Winter.

Dodson & Horrell Polo Championships

We were blessed  by the weather doing the right thing at the right time with enough rain to soften the previously hard ground in the week before the tournament and dry weather on the weekend.

It was a fantastic weekend with  8 teams entering overall, 4 in each section.  Stewarton put out some of their inexperienced players for a first run out in the tournament and these players acquitted themselves very well.  Although the teams did not come home with any spoils, the upper sector team put on a strong performance to beat an experienced Errol side on Sunday

Burnfoot won the upper section ably captained by former high goal player, Alasdair Archibald playing alongside his young guns.  The lower section was won by a tried and tested Kinross side who benefitted from years experience playing together.

It was a fantastic weekend and one we are looking forward to repeating next year
