Leadenham Polo Club was established at Leadenham in Lincolnshire by James Reeve who is incredibly passionate about polo and wanted to introduce the sport to more people by bringing it back to the village he was brought up in. One of our main ambitions here at Leadenham is to make polo accessible for all, and we do this by trying to keep our prices as affordable as possible whilst still maintaining the highest standards.
We have a renowned laser leveled and irrigated polo field, which is among the best in the country. Our fantastic string of Argentinian polo ponies are of varying levels from fast and furious match ponies down to the perfect lesson horses for beginners.
Our members and clients play a big role in helping to continuously shape and improve Leadenham. Whether you have played polo for years, or whether you have never picked up a mallet before - we welcome all here at Leadenham.

THE POLO FIELD
Work on the polo field began in 2006 and it was completed in 2007. James consulted one of the best pitch designers in the country who came up with the specifications for the polo field, as he wanted to ensure that the field here at Leadenham was of the highest quality. Old farm land was stripped back and laser leveled with thousands of tonnes of sand mixed into the surface to improve the playability and drainage. The field was then sown with a specialist blend of grass seed. The first chukkas were finally played on the field in late 2008.
We take great pride in our polo field here at Leadenham as we know how amazing it is to play polo on. The grass is cut at least twice a week to ensure it is kept at the perfect length, and we regularly fertilize the field and have it verti-drained to stop it becoming too compacted and encourage drainage. In 2016 we had irrigation installed so that the field can be watered throughout the Summer, providing a softer playing surface for the horses to ride on and the ball to run on.
Below are some photos that show the polo fields construction from the very beginning, to the established polo field we have now.
