Players in Australia
Polocrosse is the world’s most family friendly horse sport. Anyone who can ride a horse can play polocrosse at an amateur and club level — all ages, all abilities.
Possibly the best polocrosse action you will see played anywhere in the world is at the Australian National Championships.
This massive event is held every two years and showcases the best players and horses from each state and territory, where they come together to compete for the Australian Champions title.
The National Championships are played on a rotational basis around the seven states and territories. One of the seven states hosts the competition on behalf of Polocrosse Australia.
On the world stage
At an international level, the pinnacle of Polocrosse has to be the World Cup.
To date, there have been five World Cup events — three at Morgan Park, Warwick Queensland, with Australia taking out the World Champions trophy (2003, 2007, 2019).
