Some visitors have their first polo experience in Barbados and it is not difficult to see why because it is a wonderful afternoon’s entertainment. The international polo season starts just after Christmas when the island is buzzing with overseas visitors and returning nationals. The season runs through to May and teams from all over the world visit our polo fields. Barbados has a healthy reputation for hospitality on and off the field, and is now firmly on the world polo map as a destination where the sport flourishes and the social scene excels. Much of this is due to generous patrons within the sport, top quality sponsors and government support.
In an era where sports tourism has developed out of all recognition as a niche market, polo in Barbados has been a shining example of a sport that brings visitors to the island and boosts the economy.
New polo centres have sprung up in recent times, and their facilities and ambience are terrific, but for many people the heartbeat of Barbados polo still remains at Holder’s Polo fields.
