New surfaces for Zacara Polo’s horses and riders
A privately-owned polo club located just west of London, Zacara is a stunning high-goal polo yard in Berkshire, the heart of polo country. Owned by polo patron Lyndon Lea, Zacara is one of the most successful polo teams of recent times, winning the U.S. Open in 2013 and the Cartier Queen’s Cup in 2014 amongst other prestigious titles.
Slatter Estates Surfacing were invited to price and successfully completed the preparation and surfacing of a new Polo canter track using macadam surfacing (Approx 4000 m2 oval track) plus the tarmac surfacing works to a new estate road (Approx 2500 m2) serving a new indoor arena training facility.
The works consisted of removing existing grass surfaces, excavating to form sub-grades, installing new drainage, construction of car parks and an access road, surfacing with macadam surfacing and associated line marking works.
The works were carried out in accordance with strict Health & Safety requirements, ensuring the safety of horse and rider, visitors and construction workers alike. Complex surfacing and lining works were delivered to ensure safe drainage and to minimise the risk of water pooling on the surface.
The finished surface provides an all-weather training facility for horse and rider with good drainage characteristics whilst also being safe for 4-legged users.
