Capel Polocrosse Club

Capel Polocrosse Club


 

Capel is a small friendly club with players living around the south west. Players range in all ages and ability. The club actively promotes the sport by coaching at local pony clubs and other venues.The club is fortunate in having the use of irrigated fields at the Capel Equestrian Centre to ride, train and play on.

The club has had several players represent the state and in the 1994 Nationals at Walkaway the club had 10 players involved with 4 of the winning mens team coming from the Capel club, and 1 other player who had previously been a club member.
