SANTA BARBARA POLO & RACQUET CLUB PHILOSOPHY
There is something for everyone at Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club. Competition is at all levels, from beginners in an arena to pro pool, and low, medium and high goal polo. The Club and its members strive to produce the highest quality product with outstanding fields and facilities, and professional umpiring to ensure equal treatment for all participants. While the competition at the medium and high goal levels is very intense, we strive for a fair and safe outcome for every match and every tournament.
Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club is one of the oldest clubs in the United States, celebrating its 110 year since its founding, and is the largest and most active polo club on the west coast. Our members and players are polo enthusiasts, whether they are beginners, advanced players or simply enjoy watching the matches. Our members and players are part of a community that enjoy the many outdoor venues that the central coast of California has to offer, whether it is at the polo fields, hiking nearby mountain trails or surfing or paddle boarding on beautiful beaches within a quarter mile.
Our sense of community for our polo enthusiasts is unique as most of our fields, stabling and social occasions are in one location and encourages social engagement of our participants and members off the field as well as on the field of competition. They share a love of horses and the smart casual lifestyle and code of the American West.
For polo or tennis, we believe it’s never too early or too late in life to pick up a mallet or a tennis racquet. We offer a variety of programs to meet all ages and skill levels taught in a fun and engaging environment as well as competitive leagues, tournaments and lively tennis mixers.
