Every registered polo player in Australia carries a Handicap of between S/-2 and 10. These are set by each State Association's Handicap Committee following recommendations from Clubs.

Handicaps are reviewed midyear and towards the end of the year. Players may be re-handicapped between the midyear review and the end of the year even if they do not play between these times.

who have not played polo, shall be assigned an ‘S’ handicap and may only play practice chukkas at clubs of which they are a member, they may not play in tournaments. To be upgraded to a -2 handicap a player must take and pass the Rules Test, the club assigns a fair and accurate T handicap when they consider that they are sufficiently experienced as a player, and meet the handicap evaluation guidelines. Clubs must inform the State Handicap Committee of any T handicaps assigned.

WOMENS HANDICAPS From January 2018 Womens handicaps will be awarded, Womens Handicap Benchmarks are listed below.
