If you're looking for a Corporate Day with a difference, a day playing polo is a great way to bring the team together whilst having a huge amount of fun. Only 50 minutes from Sydney's CBD, Polo Corporate Days can be tailored to suit your requirements.
Riding or polo experience is not required to enjoy a Willo Polo Corporate Day. An experienced coach will instruct the day and quiet school horses are used. The world-class facilities at Sydney Polo Club ensure you learn in a safe and secure environment.

Wooden Horse - a horse made entirely of wood on which you sit to practice swinging the mallet before you take on the real thing.
Hand Mallet - a 1/2 size mallet which is used to hit the ball whilst on foot. You'll see the pros at tournaments hitting to each other on the sidelines with these.
Throw the ball in - Polo has a lineout, much like rugby. The ball is thrown in and players battle to be the first to hit it.
Sundowners - drinks enjoyed as the sun goes down.
