Come visit the Purdue Polo Club at the Hoosier Horse Fair at the Indiana State Fairgrounds this weekend! Learn all about polo at Purdue and how YOU can learn to play the sport at a location convenient to both West Lafayette and Indianapolis! Members will be on hand to answer questions at the club’s booth in the vendor fair and will also be acting as ushers during the Friday and Saturday evening rodeos.

They’re going to have Purdue Pete playing polo on the front and say “Purdue Polo” and on the back will have the quote “Playing polo is like trying to play golf during an earthquake: -Sylvester Stallone. Whether you’re a current club member or one of our fabulous alumni, if you’d love to rep our club with this awesome shirt, e-mail us your shirt size! Price will be between $10-$15 depending on the number we order.

Fundraisers don’t get any easier than this!
We are working toward our goal of raising sufficient funds to have a polo club, complete with horses, starting on Sept. 1 of this year. However, we need to raise $4000+ to make to create an emergency vet funds to support the (future) horses.
We have signed up with a company that designs search toolbars that donate 10 cents per search. All you have to do is follow the link below, install the toolbar, and start searching! While 10 cents doesn’t sound like much, if you think about how many times a day you search for something it quickly adds up.
