It only seemed natural being a quintessentially British hotel in Windsor and a stone’s throw away from one of the nation’s most renowned polo clubs, to have a team of our own – so we formed one.
Yes you’ve heard us right – The Oakley Court Polo Team has taken the polo world by storm, and not just because we’re one of, if not the only hotel to have one. From our first stick and ball session, to our debut game out on the field, The Oakley Court Polo Team has gone full swing into action winning the prestigious La Martina Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Centenary Trophy at the end of last season.
A day at the polo is always such fun and a total thrill from beginning to end. There’s never a dull moment during a match, in fact it’s completely the opposite.
The sound of galloping hooves as players fly past, full pelt down the pitch towards the goal with their opponents, riding off every strategic move in the book to prevent them from scoring, sends pulses racing with all eyes on the ball. And then there’s the sunshine, a delicious picnic, the endless flow of bubbly and a good juicy strawberry – what’s there not to love?!
It’s moments like this when you fall in love with a quintessential British getaway, where luxury is at the essence and the stress of everyday life is suddenly a lifetime away. At The Oakley Court, you can have all of that, and as you can see here, there’s a lot more to us than just a hotel with an award-winning restaurant. It’s what makes us unique, and keeps us interesting!
Come and watch The Oakley Court Polo Team in action – once you start, you’ll find you’re soon hooked – we were! We’ll pack you a picnic and chill the bubbly and in the meantime follow the team’s progress at Guards Polo Club until you’re cheering them on in action in the beautiful surroundings of the polo pitch.
