GRV Branded Polo Offer FAQs
No, the GRV polo is not mandatory. To ensure minimum dress standards are practical, simple, affordable, and able to accommodate the personal circumstances of all participants, including interstate trainers, the updated Dress Standard allows options such as plain navy-blue tops or long sleeves.
If unsure, review the sizing information provided which includes polo measurements in centimetres (cm). Lay flat a well-fitting top that you already own and then measure. Find the corresponding polo size according to the size chart provided and if in-between sizes, order the size up.
Yes, provided all tags are attached and the polo is clean and unworn, simply return it to the Club you collected it from. The Club will let GRV know an exchange is required and the correct size to be sent out.
Once the order period closes on 13 March 2023 it will take a few weeks for polo orders to be processed and delivered to Clubs, but it is expected that all polo orders will be available for collection by the end of March. Updates on deliveries to Clubs and collection processes will be posted here.
