A big welcome to the Argentina polo team playing in New Zealand this coming Saturday 6th Feb at Kihikihi Domain. Check out all the action of the annual International Kihikihi Polo Tournament 2016 from 1pm this Saturday.

Kihikihi Polo Club was founded on strong family ties and community spirit, two values that are still very much evident today and have been the success to one of the oldest sports clubs in New Zealand.  The club have always promoted a strong loyality to the local community and in return, appreciate an established local support.

International Day has become a main feature of the club calender. The inaugral tournament was held in 1994, when Kihikihi played an English side. For a number of years, visiting overseas teams played against the local boys until NZPA stepped up and produced a NZ team to challenge the International visitors at arguably one of the best venue’s in New Zealand to host such a high standard of play. from 2003 it has become the showcase of polo in New Zealand encouraging crowds of 2,000 – 3,000 or more enjoying the cream of NZ players competing for the “Rose Bowl” trophy.
