Conditions of Play PDF

Members Handbook

A pdf copy of the Members Handbook is available at any time by request from the Polo Office.  By signing the Membership Form, all members agree to be bound by the Club Rules as listed in the Handbook and Conditions of Play as listed on the Tournament Entry Form.

Chukka Shirts

Sussex Polo Club Chukka Shirts are green and gold, and are designed for easy identification of team members in chukka practice. Please bring both colours of shirts with you as you may be asked to wear either colour at chukkas. Anyone not wearing an appropriate coloured chukka shirt above Instructional Level will be asked to stand down or borrow a coloured bib. Chukka shirts are available from the Polo Office and may be personalised with your name.

Dress Code

Brown boots and Polo Whites are to be worn for weekday chukkas, weekend chukkas and tournaments. Hard hats are to be worn at all times whilst mounted. We recommend that you wear a hat to British Safety standards. Denim jeans are usually worn for stick and ball practise.
More details of chukka etiquette are detailed in our comprehensive on-line membership pack available to members.


Dogs are welcome if kept on a lead and under control at all times. Please clean up responsibly after your pet.

Polo is a dangerous sport, everyone rides at their own risk.

All riders and personnel enter the club at their own risk. No liability will be accepted by Sussex Polo Club or its staff for any injury to their person whilst on the premises.
