Polo was first brought to Grand Rapids in the 1950s. Polo has been played in and around Grand Rapids since that time at virtually every level. Eventually, the Kentree Polo Club was formed and outdoor polo was played at the fields at Flat River in Fallasburg Park. Polo flourished in in West Michigan in the 1980s as more people began playing and events like "Polo in the Park" were regular summer occurrences. In 1987, Les Johnson and Meadowview Farm brought the action of indoor polo here with an indoor arena for polo.
While polo is no longer played at the fields in Fallasburg Park, polo continues on. The Grand Rapids Polo Club carries on the traditions and excellence of polo by offering a full-size, grass polo field that is the regulation size of 160 yards wide by 300 yards. Polo on the grass offers the speed and heart-pounding excitement you would expect from traditional polo. The outdoor arena – that is a regulation size of 150 feet by 300 feet – showcases the quick, physical, and intense game of arena polo, and provides a great, close-up view of all the action.
Our club is home to players of all ages, from all walks of life. We welcome inquiries from new and established players alike!
