As honorary historian for the Victorian Polo Association, I hope that players, families, friends and polo followers will find interest in these pages; basically the VPA ARCHIVES and some personal memories.

 

The plan for the archives is for a ‘Work in Progress’ – using the VPA website as a gateway for readers’ additions and amendments, after VPA ratification.

 

CLAIMS! - VICTORIA’S Warrnambool as the FIRST polo playing district and HEXHAM as Australia’s OLDEST continuing polo club.
