So what's the difference?

Anatomically; 2 arms, 2 legs and a difference at all. So why is it a polo pro can do what he does and you perhaps can't...yet?

Polo is just like building a house - only when there is a solid foundation can you begin to construct the storeys on top. Big power shots are the roof of the house and you will never reach them if the foundation is weak and can't hold the growing structure.

90% of player problems are at their foundation. So stop accepting mediocre playing skills and be the best you can.

Come and enjoy (endure ?!) our famous 3 day BOOTCAMP course and make this the season you go up in handicap.
