The Facilities

The Singapore Polo Club is set in 24 acres of lush tropical grounds, within touching distance of the city’s vibrant business and commercial districts. Its newly renovated clubhouse with its colonial era open verandah, provides expansive views over this green oasis whilst providing an elegant yet understated ambience. The Club has the one and only regulation size grass polo field in Singapore, an international standard covered arena, as well as a number of other outdoor arenas for polo and other equestrian activities. More than being just a polo club, it’s a lifestyle club, with facilities for dining, tennis, working out as well as pampering.. Apart from its own designated location at the Mount Pleasant Rd stables, its own tack shop for equipment and supplies from some of the world’s best known polo brands, the Atoms Polo Academy will also include a dedicated space for the kids to “hang out” in the Atoms Club Room equipped with boardgames, a foosball table and a PS4 for the gamers in the mix.


The Hurlingham Polo Association (HPA) is the governing body for polo in the UK, Ireland and many other countries throughout the world. As such, it is responsible for the regulations and rules under which the game is played. The association originated as the Hurlingham Polo Committee in 1875 (which drew up the original rules for polo). 

The Hurlingham Polo Committee was re-titled as the Hurlingham Club Polo Committee and expanded to include representatives on the Council from the armed Services, County Polo which at the time included the three London polo clubs – Hurlingham, Ranelagh and Roehampton – and from all associations within the Empire where polo was being played in 1903. Later, in 1925, the Hurlingham Club Polo Committee was re-designated as the Hurlingham Polo Association, which it remains as today. Apart from rules and handicapping, the object of the HPA is to further the interests of polo generally and support by all possible means the common interests of its affiliated clubs and associations in the UK and around the world.
