INGLESHAM Polo Centre, near Lechlade, sadly unused for a number of years, has been brought back to life.

Having happy memories of playing there himself, Matt Evetts has been responsible for resurrecting the facility which is rare in being able to provide polo all year round through its indoor and outdoor arenas.

Evetts said: “I played in the Inglesham arena years ago, and not only was it great for keeping up polo skills over the winter, but it had a really friendly atmosphere.

"That’s what I wanted to recreate.

"We've only been up and running for a few weeks and already have a thriving membership rediscovering the fun of arena polo every weekend."

With its comfortable club house, teaching room and ponies available to hire alongside the polo facilities, Inglesham is proving popular with local companies organising team-building days and bookings are already being taken for Christmas events.

Polo takes place on Saturday and Sunday at 11am. Contact Matt Evetts for more information on 01367 358051 and 07818 508136.
