The OSU Polo Club needs your assistance to be able to take our Varsity Team to the USPA Nationals!

The OSU Polo Club does not have a set schedule of games going into each semester, but the United States Polo Association (USPA) hosts a national competition yearly. They have preliminaries, regionals, and a national competition. Schools like Harvard, University of Virginia, SMU, and University of Texas all compete in nationals. Matches are set annually between Oklahoma State and Texas Tech University, University of Texas, Colorado State University, Texas State University, and Texas Christian University. In the school year of 2021-2022, our women’s varsity placed second at regional, winning an all-star award, best playing pony award, and best playing string acknowledgement. Following, for the first time in OSU history, we qualified for D1 nationals and placed fourth! Not only does the team earn recognition through tournaments, but we also have hundreds and thousands of followers on our social media. 

While we earn many recognition for these events, the travel expenses and entry to our competitions cost our club thousands. These expenditures set back our move to our new location (which will have running water, electricity, and more room for our ponies)! We have more club members, ponies, and playing teams than we have had in years – thus the cost of running has also increased! While membership dues pay to feed our ponies, there is not much room left for extras (such as competitions, new tack, a trailer, etc.).

The women’s varsity team has been working hard this year to win nationals in the spring! In order to get there, they must compete in several other competitions to qualify – all of which cost the club hundreds of dollars. We do not get any outside funding from this, and therefore, must fundraise! Any support given through Philanthropete will go directly to funding our women’s team and our new men’s varsity team traveling and competing for OSU! This will hopefully continue to help us gain recognition as well as new sponsorships to further advancing our organization.
