ABOUTGPL®

We’re a community that shares a love for adventure, fun, and the beautiful, challenging sport of polo. The Gay Polo League™ is committed to providing our members around the world with an enjoyable, supportive and competitive experience.

We represent a wide range of ages, backgrounds and skill levels – in fact, some of us had never been on a horse before joining. We actively train and compete in mainstream matches and events to test our skills, share our enthusiasm for the sport, and change perceptions about our community.

Our goal is to provide a safe place for active people to enjoy the excitement of competition and the camaraderie that comes with team sports, knowing that many of us didn’t have as many opportunities to play a team sport growing up. We welcome everyone from the LBGT community and beyond to participate and compete, or just cheer us on from the sidelines.

Polo is a sport rich with history, tradition, speed and skill – we encourage you to join us and experience it firsthand!
