Triskelion Polo Club was established in October 2014 by brothers Cameron and Frazer Houston at the amazing arena polo facilities of Grenaby Estates Equestrian Centre. Starting with only 9 horses and the club doing so well, they had to expand their string only two months into opening.
Now 7 years later with close to 40 horses, regular tournaments, lessons and events, the home of polo on The Isle of Man moved to the new grounds at Ballacooiley, Ballaugh. The new summer polo fields boast two playing fields and a stick and ball field, and with paddocks and large turnout on site.
The club is dedicated to the development of its members and its main focus is making it a safe and exciting place to learn and progress in polo. With our HPA (Hurlingham Polo Association) qualified coach Cameron, lessons are always available for the complete beginners to intermediate riders, they have a wide variety of well schooled ponies to suit anyone wanting to try their hand at this exciting sport.
With the new grounds comes breath taking scenery making it the perfect place to host private engagements such as; corporate events, birthdays and weddings.
