Polo enthusiasts from across the Hunter are expected to flock to Dungog this weekend for the Kloster Volkswagen Hunter Valley Polo Challenge.

With four players from the recently successful Australian Polo Team, spectators will be spoilt for choice as they take in the action on the field while enjoying a few fine beverages with friends off-field.

Wirragulla Polo Club has invited up to 16 teams from around Australia to compete for the honour of having their names engraved into the Wirragulla history.

"Polo is one of the fastest growing spectator sports in the world today and we are delighted to be partnering with Wirragulla Polo Club to support country polo," said Kloster VW's Brad Heuchan.

The Kloster Volkswagen Hunter Valley Polo Challenge will be held at Tabbil Creek Polo Ground on Saturday 14 and Sunday, September 15.

The games start at 9am on both days with the finals on Sunday afternoon.

Tickets are $10 for adults with children under 16 admitted free.
