Auckland Polo Club joins the web

The Auckland Polo Club, the largest polo club in New Zealand, is the latest from the sport of kings to join the world wide web.

The ancient sport of polo has a huge online following, and the club's new website, at, will be a one-stop shop for players wanting to know more about the services the Auckland Polo Club offers.

As well as weekly news and up-to-date results during the season, draws and fixtures are also featured on the site. Early this month the draw for the upcoming New Zealand open will be released first on the website.

The club's general manager, Niki Hulston, says that the website was created in response to demand from players and supporters -- especially those living all or part of the year away from New Zealand. "Now players will be able to access results and draws immediately they are available.

"It will also ease the administrative load as we are able to provide information to players and prospective players immediately, rather than relying on the post."

The club, with more than 40 players, operates seven grounds and has several additional private grounds available for tournaments. This year the club is host to New Zealand's championship tournament, the Savile Cup, as well as the New Zealand Open.

The new site was created by equine web design specialists Horsetalk (, and is also hosted by Horsetalk.
