Meadow Brook polo plays in three locations. During the week we play on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5PM at our Whitney Lane Polo Field in Old Westbury, NY.

During the weekends we play Saturdays at 11:00AM at our Whitney Lane fields and on Saturdays we play at 4:00PM at the Bethpage Park Polo Fields in Bethpage, NY.

Yes! Polo is one of the great sports played on long Island where you can bring the entire family and still be up close to the action. Come watch polo every Saturday at Bethpage, become a social member and get all practices and game schedules.

Polo can not be played on wet fields. It is dangerous for both the horse and rider. After it rains, it can take up to a day (depending on the sun and wind) for a polo field to dry. Before heading out to the field, it is always a good idea to check our calendar or call to confirm polo is still on schedule.

Gates open at 3 PM. Game starts at 4 PM and goes to around 6 PM.
