Renewing polo games at the Adelaide Aquatics Centre


Come along to the Adelaide Aquatic Centre this Saturday for the first week of an up and coming trial revival at this venue! It’d be great to see many faces there!

We have an opportunity to play again at the Adelaide Aquatics Centre.

If you would like to see polo return to this centre, support this four week trial which is being run to gauge the interest and practicality of returning to this fine venue.


Saturday: October 6, 20, 27 and November 3

(Not October 13 because this is the Tintinara weekend)


Warm up paddle 4pm – 4:30pm

Games 4:30 – 7:00pm

A training session for beginners and juniors will use half the pool from 4pm to 4:30pm. During this time experienced players can set up equipment, organise teams and practice in the other half of the pool until games start promptly at 4:30.

Cost – Pool entry plus game fee

Adults $8.40 pool admission plus $11 game fee each week.

Child/Concession $6.70 pool admission plus $5 game fee each week.

(If you have a pool pass, then you only pay game fees.)

Game fees can be paid on the night to Liz Melville, or in advance to:

Bring new players

We will have sessions for new players starting at 3:45.

They will have a 15 minute off-water session and a 30 minute on-water session before games start. Depending on skill acquisition they may play in games after the training session.

Cost – non-members $35 for 4 week introductory membership to Paddle Australia

Paddle SA members $20 for four weeks

Important note:

Future seasons at the Adelaide Aquatic Centre.

  • The Adelaide Aquatics Centre has requested photographic record of the pool condition before and after the trial. Any damage will preclude polo from future use of the pool.

The trial is subsidised by Paddle SA. The viability of future seasons, if any, will depend on price negotiations and the willingness of players to pay the required fees.
