We’ve come a very long way since then! The men’s competition grew rapidly from eight founder teams to four divisions by 1986; the expansion of the women’s National League was just as spectacular, increasing from seven teams in its inaugural season of 1988 to four divisions 20 years later.
More than 200 different teams have played national league polo in the UK. Many competed for a short time and are long forgotten; just an honoured few have featured in every season.
We’ve now put together a year-by-year record of every one! Check the ups and downs of your team by clicking on Year by Year in this website’s History section.
