Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club announces Spring Schedule

Endless summer starts in May with the USPA sanctioned 12-goal tournament series, Pro Pool, and Coaching League at Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club. The spring season offers three levels of polo to satisfy everyone from competitive league players to players just starting out in polo. The three leagues are designed to complement each other and provide opportunities for all levels of polo players. Practice, stabling, polo lessons at the Santa Barbara Polo School and a member’s gym, tennis court and swimming pool, all on site, add to the turn key experience. Contact Polo Manager Melanja Jones or cell 970-231-7426 for more information or to sign up.
