Polo In WA
The Western Australian Polo Association is excited about the prospects for the growth of polo in this state and have been working hard since we produced our Strategic Plan in 2016.
If you would like to read our Strategic Plan and see how we are developing the sport please click here for the PDF.
The major strategies we are implementing include:
- Undertaking a feasibility study for the re-turfing of Kings Meadow to raise it to an international standard playing surface
- Coordinating the efforts of our clubs and members to grow participation at all levels
- Supporting the coordination and running of competition and events from the social level to the elite level
- Implementing strategies from the APF at the state level to ensure national consistency
- Playing a lead role in the development and management of a valuable horse sport industry in WA
- Providing support and advice to local and state government on equine related planning decisions
While the future looks promising, we also owe so much to who came before us and developed the sport over many years.
