created in 2000, the Polo Club Villa a Sesta is one of the best polo clubs in Europe. From the very beginning every phase of its construction was planned and implemented paying meticulous attention to technical aspects, environmental impact and the wellbeing of the players and the ponies.
The VAS has three international standard polo fields (all in Tifton grass) and a practice field, all state of the art as far as technical levels and facilities are concerned. The main field no. 1 measures 260 x 140 metres, the no. 2 field measures 245 x 120 metres and the new “Sorleone” field measures 276 x 150 metres, while the practice field measures 120 x 70 metres.
Inaugurated in 2017, the “Sorleone” field is not only the largest in Italy, but is close to a small lake surrounded by vegetation, the ideal location for organising social events or relaxing after a match.
