POLO DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVE (PDI)

Mallets on Arena Wall OC Polo Club

The Polo Development Initiative (PDI) grant program is designed to facilitate the sustainability of polo by empowering clubs and polo schools with grant-based reimbursable awards. The success of the sport depends on success of its clubs.

The intent of the PDI Grant Program, which is a reimbursable grant-based program, is to support thoughtfully presented applications for PDI funding that address specific, club-based, sustainability needs. Grant awards will be made in support of a specific purpose that addresses those needs, including by, but not limited to:

  • Advancing the sustainability and growth of club membership, taking into consideration club capacity and the available polo facilities;
  • Improving the quality of the polo playing experience; and
  • Promoting the development of the sport of polo
