Polo Kidogo was started by Brett and Chrissy Kiely in 1990. While polo is often perceived as elitist and inaccessible, Polo Kidogo aims to broaden its appeal to a greater audience, so that their passion for polo can be shared by more West Australians and visitors from overseas.
Brett was born and raised in Western Australia. He began playing polo at an early age and reached a 5 goal handicap.
Brett’s professional polo career saw him play throughout the world including, USA, Argentina, New Zealand, Germany, France, UK, Spain, Italy, Malaysia and Singapore.
Brett is regarded very highly throughout the international polo fraternity and has also been the Polo Manager for High Goal Teams in Europe and USA.
