Union Hill Polo Club, built and developed by Steenlage Farms, LLC, is the newest addition to the Atlanta polo community. With the opening of their field in 2013, UHP is the only club in Georgia that has both a full size arena and field, allowing polo to be played year round. Their goal is to create a polo club that welcomes players of varying abilities who are interested in playing competitive polo while improving their skill set. In addition, they have an ever-expanding list of social events at the club to enhance the Union Hill Polo experience. Located just outside Atlanta, they were just chosen to provide the horses for a music video for Full Court Press featuring hip hop artist T-Pain and NBA basketball champion Shawn Marion (pictured) being shot at a local high school. The video has a cameo appearance by polo player Kerstie Allen as one of the “Champions”!
