The Tamarang Polo Club will be hosting its annual carnival on August 17-18, and even though this horrid drought has its claws into the entire district, we are still steaming ahead with preparations and organisations for our weekend of polo.
The Tamarang club is one of the oldest surviving clubs in Australia, this year marking our 131st year.
The club was founded in 1888 and continues to run successfully today.
Our hard working committee and community support is second to none. We rely heavily on our wonderful volunteers who are the back bone of our little club.
We have several families who have inter generational players. For example, we have third generation players and some of the horses played stem from their great grandfathers' lines.
The history in this little club is astounding and we treasure it.
Our field is located at Bundella on the western bank of the Bundella creek, and even with the lack of rain it is one of the nicest spots to enjoy a day out at the polo.
We have teams who travel from North Star, Goondiwindi, Sydney, Scone and local surrounds to compete over the weekend. All of these players, their families, grooms and their horses are billeted out with families and friend of our club.
We have wonderful facilities. A full bar, lunch, morning and afternoon tea is available all weekend and a fully catered dinner is available on Saturday night in our clubhouse.
We would invite any and all who may want to enjoy a family friendly day out and would love many spectators!
The finals will be played on Sunday afternoon with lots of speed and fun promised!
