We are now in the full swing of summer in the #district, now that we have had the summer solstice! Looking for something to spice up your warm days? Don’t you want to make the most of the longer days? Look no further than heading out to a polo match at DC Polo Society. Read on for five reasons why you should check Polo out this summer.
1. Excuse to go into the country and have a picnic with your friends
We all see those aesthetic instagram’s people post with the nice bottle of wine and the cheese plates and picnic blankets. You can be one of those people now! Throw together your favorite snacks and your favorite beverages with a blanket and you too will have yourself an #insta worthy picnic to share.

2. You can watch and enjoy a new sport!
They say you’re never too old to learn something new (or something like that), and this is your chance, Polo isn’t just the response to Marco (see what we did there). There are so many layers to this game, more than polo shirts and white pants.

3. You can get out of the chaos of the city
The constant hectic day to day of the city can wear you down, take a short drive out to the countryside to take a breather, and breathe in air that isn’t take over by smog or very tall buildings that take away from your enjoyment of the outdoors.
#FrayLifeTip: Take a drive through the historic Poolesville neighborhood while you are out there for all you architecture fans.
4. You can even take lessons at the club
Do you ever see someone riding a horse and wish that you could be able to do the same? Well now is your chance, the club also allows for lessons, as long as you bring a helmet and a pair of boots they will provide everything else (even the horse!). As there is always a club pro on site you will be able to learn from the best and immerse yourself in all that is horseback riding and polo!

5. It’s hard to meet people in our busy city, you can make new friends
If you’re new to the city you have probably come to the realization that it is extremely difficult to meet people ~socially~, in a place where everyone is on the go or working all the time there is hardly any time. Spending your whole day at a polo match, you will be able to network and socialize and make new friends!
