Welcome to Taunton Vale Polo Club

Founded in 1911 by the Officers of the Regimental Depot of the Somerset Light Infantry, together with other enthusiasts, Taunton Vale Polo Club has the oldest polo ground in England. Join us from April to September to play or watch some of the best polo the Westcountry has to offer. We provide polo for all ages and abilities from beginners to professionals with varying tournament levels allowing all members to be involved.

•    Dogs welcome (to be kept on a lead at all times)
•    Refreshments available from the clubhouse
