On Tuesday the 27th of July at 7 pm, the Haysville Community Library will sponsor a very special evening session, free and open for all, exploring the exciting sport of polo.
It’s a lot more important and lot closer to you than you may think
Just shy of 3 miles south of the intersection of Grand and Broadway (at 9420 South Broadway), a lefthand turn will bring you to the premier location in all the metroplex for the sport of polo: the Wichita Regional Polo Center in Haysville.
On Sunday afternoons at 2 from June through September you can watch as this more than 2,500 year-old sport is played, and learn why it has endured for so very long, exciting fans from ancient Persia to the modern Great Plains.
As the website of the Fairfield Polo Club explains, polo has been played in the Wichita area continuously since 1931 – nearly eighty years. And since the fall of 2008, Haysville has been the home of the arena in which a dozen tournaments are held each summer. (Haysville is the home of two of the four polo fields in the metropolitan area.)
In fact, there are eight more tournaments on the schedule this summer. (For the schedule, see this page on the Fairfield site.)
In consequence, and as a result of popular demand, the library is sponsoring a special evening of Introduction to Polo.
It’s free, and it’s fun — so join us Tuesday July 27th.
