Warning to Club Governors

On reading in this column Cowdray Park Polo Club being another elite and highly prestigious club to follow Guards handing over more to sponsors  there is something to be said about the last bastions of esteemed society being seduced by the attraction of sponsorship. Most have a reasonable understanding of why clubs take on sponsors and support it. But I wonder how many of these clubs really understand what the long term effects of agreeing to commercial exchange for alliance means.

When you agree to allow a commercial enterprise to align itself with you in the good old days before everything was digital they were much easier to contain. However Im sure most dont realise that these sponsors monitor every person the club has dealings with and trace their movements online forevermore.

Think your safe because you havent given your email list to sponsors? Think again. How is your club newsletter sent out?  Oh whoops, too late. Oh well dont add more problem to your club's future and stop it now. Send it out yourself.

It may seem minor on face value until you realise private membership has no longer any integrity. The only way to stop sponsors effectively taking away your currency and ability to attract sponsors in the future is to have a prenup.

Try insisting your sponsors digital creative is stripped of tags and they agree not to use tracking code or ad servers for a start. When you hand over an email address you are giving them the keys to that person's life. Dont believe me and go ahead and see how many sponsors will agree to you not letting them collect your email list. If you do not have agreement then in time you may not be left with anything they or any other sponsor wants in on. Because they already know more about your membership than you ever will.

Without this agreement sometime in the short long term you will definately come to a point where you have lost all ability to attract sponsors of any ilk. Finding out your sponsors have already collected for their own, every detail of your club's membership, business dealings and transactions on all levels is pretty comprehensive disempowerment.

Clubs that sold their souls back in the naughties, teens and 20s of this cenutry will no longer exist having first lost their appeal to the highly private social elite they emanated from and then soon to follow the social aspirants who pattern them. Any clubs that are left will have little pulling power to attract sponsorships as the sponsors have already mined all the details of the club and copied it to their own databases long ago and have been building on it far beyond any clubs capabilities by now anyway.

But the bright side is in the long term only clubs that exist independent of the need for money to play polo will be able to survive. Ringing in a new era of polo for the purist alone. A return to the days where polo was a truly elite sport and the value of social morays and privacy were held above the importance of publicity and sycophantasia.

For those that find me difficlt to understand here it is -

Keep your membership details off the internet and certainly locked away from sponsors. Never let anyone have any of your digital records, ever.

Roadhouse is a small club with a Big Hart We have 5 players and 4 who think they are riders and can play so we always make do and have enough to have a strong hit when we all come together.

The club meets every last weekend of the month as distance and lack of many sealed roads is hard to make it more.


We like Playing in the Snow this is dificult to get better at as our best player Wally Wrenchshaft is always invited away to play against our closest neighbours who arent that much better than us at playing


Our winters are long so we enjoy the spring and fall there is not much summer
We dont have any women in our club players but Closet Fardulous and Rusty White bith have 5 daughters so we have plenty of womenfolk about which gives our club a lightness and happiness we know we are lucky because every notices

Our club meetings last about a week with most of us working weekends cropping and lumbering all through the early months So we plan big. last year the lorry bringing our whisky was a day late and the driver was unable to leave for 3 days he become our empire and although he tried to be fair he was shithouse

If any of you want to come and visit or have recipirocal clubs we can show you some of our hospitality but you must be prepared to ride'm wild or dont ridematall around here. Willis built a separate women only cottage for any of you ladies woing on for 28 of our own we cater to you yes mamme.  

We can bed 30 so we make sure everyone comes to party every nite and play hard every day



This is what I am talking about this is what its like I will get Dianne to help me put some stories together and you can see more

Is Lady Gaga Visiting Dutch Polo Cause for its Gain in Popularity

Polo In the Nederlands has never been a major sport but certainly these days it is attrating bigger crowds than ever before.

The reason for the increase in interest is surely due to several noteable identities continuing to promote the sports profile.

No less the mega-pop star Lady Gaga who rumours have it visited one of the countrys top Polo Clubs last month and of course the secret visit by Prince Henry last year to our cpitals Polo Club have helped boast the sports publicity to a broader audienceharry1.jpg

b2ap3_thumbnail_204T9044.JPGThere are many gadgets and pieces of technology you don't need but where would we be without them when we do.

It is easy to play polo with nothing more technical than the car your drive yourself there in, but what about the times when things don't go right. It is these one off serious occassions when everything goes arrye that we depend on a level of technology that is not normal there and with out it all would be lost
