FIELDS & ARENA
2 GRASS FIELDS & 1 SAND ARENA,
MAINTAINED ALL YEAR LONG
FIELD NO. 2
Our latest addition to the club, is a full-size field with a very dense grass cover, sitting adjacent to the Route de Thonon, one of the main arteries leading into Geneva.
This field is well adapted to large and sponsored events given its quick and easy access and the visibility it offers. Club sponsors often choose to place banners along the safety net facing the road, and/or on the other side of the field facing the event area.
FIELD NO. 1
Located at the far end of the village, nestled between the stream and the view on the distant alps. This location carries a very serene and private feeling. The surrounding pond, woods, and scattered crop fields in the distance display a variety of colors and pleasant smells. The field is smaller and as such is ideal for exhibition matches where the action is closer to the crowd. This field has been the venue of choice for a number events over the past years from weddings to birthday parties to sponsored theme galas and charity fund raisers.
One visiting dignitary, The Maharaja of Jodhpur, upon being showered with fine champagne and after a match where players wore colored turbans, commented:
“I must tell you, this is the craziest club I have ever visited”!
There are two fenced sand arenas at the club that can be used for training and polo.
The smaller arena is located next to the barn and stables and is great for training the changing of leads, and stopping and turning in general.
The larger arena is oben used for 2 x 2 sand polo and is also appropriate for any kind of horse training as well as troIng and galloping.
There is a nice gazebo on the side where friends and
family can relax and watch the goings on.
THE AUTHENTIC CLUBHOUSE
With its authentic chesterfield lounge and polo memorabilia, the GPC clubhouse is our pride & joy, capable to host up to 100 guests on two floors in a very unique atmosphere all year round.
