Launched in 2003, the Moscow Polo Club retuned polo to Russia after nearly 100 years of the sports’ absence during communism. The oldest and largest club in Russia relocated to the Tseleevo Golf and Polo Club in 2009 and now sits on 30 hectares next door to a Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course. The club boasts two impeccable regulation sized polo fields designed by Alejandro Battro, one practice field surrounded by a 1 km track, an outdoor arena and stables that can accommodate up to 80 polo ponies. The Moscow Polo Club hosts the majority of tournaments and meetings of the Russian polo season.
The winter season lasts from mid-January to mid-March. The summer season lasts from mid-May to mid-September.
The Moscow Polo Club also houses a Polo Academy, which has brought up a good number of Russia’s players.
