Roseland Polo

our mission

Roseland Polo’s Mission statement is simple: “To create a sustainable polo community in the Charlottesville area with continuous growth in the number of participants and level of play. The Roseland Polo club is an organization of polo players and polo supporters working to increase the number and quality of polo players, clubs, schools, and tournaments in Virginia.
Our next Roseland Polo match will be held on
Sunday, July 14th, at 12:00PM



After David & Ellen King moved to Virginia from Houston, Texas in 1995, their search for a farm had one priority; 12 acres of relatively flat ground for a polo field.  Vineyards and a winery were not even a dream at that point. David had played polo since 1980 and wanted a polo field and polo club to continue enjoying the sport. The farm that now contains both Roseland Polo and King Family Vineyards fit perfectly into the family’s vision: a country place where we could all live, work, and play.


The Roseland Polo Club now has grown from David and Ellen’s vision to strive to grow the sport of polo in the Charlottesville area. The Roseland Polo Club gives the public exposure to polo through free polo matches for watching every Sunday and offering fans a chance to learn to play through The Roseland Polo School.
