Spectators Enjoy the Game as Much as Players

A polo match is just as engaging off the field as on. There are several things spectators do to enhance their day at the field.

Viewing

Binoculars can come in handy at a polo match. Opinions vary regarding the best way to watch the match, but most prefer to watch the main group of players as that is where most of the action occurs.

Seating

Most polo clubs have bleacher seating from which to watch the match. However, most spectators prefer to bring blankets or chairs to view the match right from the sidelines.

Refreshments

Tailgating is extremely popular at polo matches as are picnic lunches and, almost more importantly, afternoon tea. Most matches begin at 3pm and end around 5pm with prize giving presentations.

Divot Stomping

Divot stomping is a long-standing half-time tradition. Spectators converge on the field to stomp down the turf that has been torn up by the pony’s hooves. It becomes, without fail, a quite festive few minutes.
