Who we are
Power of Polo is a new and unique, national charity. Our mission is to positively impact the lives of anyone facing social, economic or health challenges, utilising the sport of polo.
Our strap line ‘change your line’ refers to how this sport can help you to change the direction of your life and is taken from the most important rule of the game – the line of the ball.
Our model is one of partnership, collaboration and facilitation. Many polo clubs are keen to provide charitable programmes but do not have the necessary infrastructure to be able to perform, sustain, monitor and evaluate them. Power of Polo provides this support by bringing together charities, polo clubs and other relevant organisations with the common aim of making these programmes a reality and facilitating the programmes by providing assistance with financing, training, monitoring and evaluation.
We have built youth leader positions within our courses as an opportunity for appropriate young people to develop skills which can help them towards their careers in the future. (Seen here in the top photo 4 youth leaders, CEO, and 2 youth workers from SCY)
It is our hope that by being a focal point for the charitable aim and by sharing the work being done by individual organisations with the wider polo community, we can be a catalyst for growth.
"Whilst we cannot significantly change a person’s current circumstance we believe that these opportunities may positively influence the way they view themselves and impact upon their future, thus improving and 'changing their line' "
