History

Ham Polo Club is the last remaining active club of its kind in London. Founded in 1927, it is also one of the oldest in the country. At its conception it consisted of one full-sized ground and two smaller grounds, and held tournaments regularly up until the war years, before being eventually restarted in 1947.

Today the club frequently hosts games and often invites private social events such as wedding celebrations through its doors.

Facilities

The Pavilion

Wrought in a colonial style befitting Polo's roots, this fascinating space hosts ceremonies and receptions with up to 144 guests.

The Verandahs

There are two stunning verandahs at the pavilion. The splendid vine-clad front verandah makes for a perfect sheltered outdoor dining room, and really adds to the atmosphere of the space.

Catch your breath and enjoy a leisurely hazelnut latte or two on the south-facing back verandah, an ideal chilling-out space for your guests in the early evening, with great views of the sunset.

The Marquee

The clubhouse seats up to 150 guests, but if you're planning an event larger than this, or would just like a little more room, you can deploy a marquee to extend the Pavilion's capacity.

The marquee can be erected comfortably on the edge of the amazing vine-swept front verandah, creating an inviting and intimate atmosphere for a party - just see the images above.

The Decking

This 2,000 square foot space is also available if the good old weather permits. Utterly perfect for champagne and canapés!
