NOTICE TO ALL POLO PLAYERS

 

Prevailing adverse atmospheric conditions are exacerbating the haze situation and causing a fairly serious problem with air quality. All polo players are therefore asked to note as well as adhere to the guidelines set out below.

 

3-hour PSI level

Below 100

101 to 120
(unhealthy)

121 to 150
(unhealthy)

Above 150
(very unhealthy)

Polo

To proceed as normal

PSI>100: Polo cancelled

PSI > 120: & Ball and/or Polo lessons cancelled

Walking Only for polo ponies; players advised to wear surgical or other appropriate face masks

Stick & Ball or schooling in an Arena

100< PSI < 120:Stick & Ball and/or Polo lessons permitted.

 

Obviously, horses will need to be exercised i.e. at minimum walked out at least twice a day, but polo players/riders need to be very mindful not to overdo their horse’s exertion especially once the 3 hour PSI level hits 100.

 

For more detailed information and advice you may wish to consult the NEA website (www.nea.gov.sg), the haze microsite (www.haze.gov.sg) or NEA Twitter (@NEAsg), or download the myENV app to monitor the PSI level.
