POLO IN BARBADOS
Fun Barbados: Polo in Barbados

In the 1880's the wealthy became involved and by 1884 the first Polo Club was formed and named the Barbados Polo Club, which in 1965 moved from the Garrison Savannah to Holders Hill.

They are presently four world class Polo venues in Barbados with excellently maintained Polo fields. The main Polo venue in Barbados is the Holder's Polo Field (Barbados Polo Club) located at Holders Hill which is situated almost next to Holders House, the family home of Johnny and Wendy Kidd. This house and its beautiful grounds have been known for wonderful entertainment by great International Performers during the Holders Season.
