Changes to our for sale sections. 21/12/16We have another great feature for our site. We're changing how the forum handles sales, this is to better protect us and yourselves when selling. You no longer are required to make a forum post to sell your car, car parts, and misc items. From the 22nd Dec 2016, we have a full classifieds system in place now which will make selling your items a breeze. For the mean time, we will keep the forum topics open for current sales but you will not be able to create new topics, only replies. This is to ensure a smooth transition over to the classifieds.
Creating adverts is a very simple process - Here are a few example screenshots:

We hope you enjoy this fresh layout. Making adverts and keeping on top of them has never been so easy!
....More features to come soon! Disclaimer
Club Polo cannot be held responsible for any losses while trading. We provide the area for you to trade and its down to your own discretion whether you send someone money or not.
As we've switched on our new classifieds system, I need to make members aware of how the system (can possibly) work regarding buying from each other.
Firstly I must say that LIVE TRANSACTION between members is completely optional. We can either have this ON or OFF.
So? How does live transactions work (from now on called; CREDIT).
If TRANSACTIONS is disabled, things has to be done manually: 'You' the member needs to contact the advertiser/seller in ways he wants (he chooses when posting the advert) ie, PM or Email etc, make the deal, then the advertiser will set the advert as PENDING DEAL. After the payment/deal is done, advertiser sets the advert as COMPLETED.
If TRANSACTIONS is enabled the advertiser receives the amount paid via account credit. Basically what this mean is that the seller pays CLUBPOLO directly. Once buyer pays CLUBPOLO through PayPal, we'll credit your account to the value that was sold on your item. You then need to REQUEST the credit from your account to which our system will pay you directly into your paypal account.
*We're basically acting as a middle man 'holding money' until you request it.
We're aware that members potentially may not like this idea and henceforth the feature is currently DISABLED.
If our members of the community of ClubPolo are happy with buying directly from one another and with us temporarily holding the funds until you request it, then we will enable the feature.
I hope this is clear and you understand, we're bring ClubPolo into the 21st century and always looking for ways to improve our site and making as user friendly as possible.

23 Jun 2016 23:00 - 25 Jun 2016 23:00The Polo Social - 24th to 26th June 2016 @ Billing Aquadrome (Formerly The Polo Show)
The Polo Social, What is it?
The Polo Social is a social event held on 24th to 26th June 2016 that is put on by Club Polo which is open to all VW Polo owners from any Club. So if you are part of a local club bring everyone down and grab a spot in the field.
What to Expect?
A relaxed event where you can catch up with other members, see their cars and meet new people from the club. Expect a big club meet which lasts the weekend with some beers and BBQs!
Whats going on?
Details are yet to be finalised but plans are for the club BBQ to return on the Saturday night, Show and Shine on the Sunday. We are looking to have some things going Saturday day and hopefully a car related film on the Saturday night.
Where is it?
The event is held at Billing Aquadrome, Northampton Billing, NN3 9DA. http://www.billingaquadrome.com/ 01524 781 453
We have held the event here for a number of years and its an excellent venue which really suits the clubs event. There is food available on site and there are also a couple of pubs and a Fish & Chips shop in walking distance. There is also the Mini-Golf, Karting and a leisure centre with a pool.
What do you need?
If you are camping then you need the general camping gear of tent, sleeping bag, etc. If you want to clean your car up for the show and shine on the Sunday there is a cold water supply so bring your bucket and cleaning gear. Also bring some money but there is a cash machine by the entrance to the site.
How much does it cost and how to book?
If you are camping Friday & Saturday the special rate is £16 per pitch per night non electric. A pitch is for a tent for up to 4 people, if you have extra cars they may charge you extra. To book phone the central booking office on 01524 889 524 You will need to quote the code POLO16 and then please request TEAL Meadow as this is our field. TEAL doesn't have any electric hookups so we are arranging to have a generator for those needing mains connection, you'll need to bring your own extension leads. If your are camping for just the Saturday night then its £21 per pitch. You can book this as per above but you might not be able to request Teal. Please select another field but just pitch up in the TEAL field with the rest of us when you arrive as there will be loads of room. The day rate is £10 per car. Here's a map of the venue for those who haven't been before Billing_Map FINAL.pdf
