'Let other people play at other things. The King of Games is still the Game of Kings,' reads a stone tablet next to an ancient polo field in Asia.

If you'd like to learn more about the 'Sport of Kings', China's largest polo facility, Tianjin Metropolitan Polo Club is holding Junior Equestrian and Polo Programmes this summer. Participants will learn to ride, how to care for the horses, play polo and learn how polo riding differs from regular riding. Fun activities and competitions have been planned daily, and young players from England will be there to share tips.

The cost of meals and activities for nine days is RMB30,000 per student sharing a deluxe room at the Club's five-star hotel. Parents can join for RMB1,200 per day (shared room) or RMB1,500 per day (single room), including breakfast. For details, call the Hong Kong hotline 8206 0776

The Club has invited two Young Post readers to try out their JEPP short course, from August 25-28, all expenses paid. For a chance to win, go to, watch the video and answer the questions. Winners can bring one parent on the trip. Competition closes midnight tonight.
