Triangle Area Polo Club
Come Play With Us
Triangle Area Polo Club is sanctioned by the United States Polo Association and is dedicated to advancing the sport of polo in the Triangle (Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill) area of North Carolina. The club provides many different opportunities to participate as a player or spectator and has programs for all ages and skill levels. TAPC was founded by David and Leslie Brooks in the fall of 2011. It is based at Crooked Creek Farm in Hurdle Mills, NC. The Club has 25 members ages 10 to 60 and welcomes new players and anyone who wants to learn how to play. TAPC also welcomes spectators to free Sunday Polo exhibitions in the spring, summer and fall at Crooked Creek Farm.
Club Field & Arena Polo
Club polo provides an opportunity for men and women of all ages to learn and play polo. In the spring, summer and early fall, the Club plays field polo and holds practice chukkers and exhibition matches at Crooked Creek Farm. During the winter, play moves to the arena at the farm. League play provides a great opportunity for members to hone their skills and socialize after matches. Throughout the year, some members compete in tournaments in the southeast.
Interscholastic & Youth Development Teams
Triangle Area Polo Club's Interscholastic Team is open to male and female students in fifth through twelfth grades. The team is coached by David Brooks and competes with other USPA interscholastic teams along the east coast. TAPC offers a youth team for school age members (senior in high school or younger). Youth Team members take part in regular club practices and events as well as dedicated youth team practices. Coach David Brooks works with young players on riding, rules, strategy, teamwork, horsemanship and good sportsmanship.
