Luke is originally from Toowoomba in Queensland but has traveled all around Australia to advance polo coaching facilities.
Luke is never short of some family assistance with the sport of polo; his elder brother, Matt manages Reignwood Polo Club in China and his younger brother, Dan is an up-and-coming 3 goal player just recently picked as the youngest player for the Australian squad.
Luke is responsible for player development at Riverlands Polo including providing coaching and clinic services, livery, pony buying/selling and working individually with clients to help them achieve their polo goals.
