Planning a visit to the Great Park? Here are some tips to help you get the most from your visit.
Membership at Guards Polo Club is all about enjoying polo in a relaxed and inspiring setting. The Club hosts some of the sport’s most prestigious tournaments, including the world-class Cartier Queen’s Cup - and was founded in 1955 by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, remaining the Club’s President to this day.
Probably the world’s most famous polo club, Guards Polo Club is situated in the heart of Windsor Great Park. With access to 14 polo fields, at Smith’s Lawn, Flemish Farm and Coworth Park, there are usually several games played each day during the season. World-class players, superb grounds, impressive fixtures and excellent hospitality, make Guards Polo Club the ideal location to sample this great game. It hosts some 500 matches every season, playing from Tuesdays through to Sundays and from April to September.
In addition to a talented and diverse playing membership, featuring some of the most impressive names in the game, the Club runs a substantial, non-playing membership programme. This allows social members and their guests to enjoy many of the Club’s facilities and extensive membership benefits. Non-members can also purchase tickets and hospitality for the Club’s key fixtures.
Guards Polo Club manages a collection of overseas events and has great reciprocal links with many of the world’s leading clubs, enabling its members to enjoy their polo all year. Meanwhile La Martina, the leading kit and clothing designer, has a designated shop at Smith’s Lawn.
