3 weeks into the season and polo has been a larger success than years past for the International Polo Club of Palm Beach. The game of polo has long been associated with wealth and status, as a game for the elite, but it is truly an amazing experience for everyone. For Floridians, it is a tradition and epicenter for fun, socializing, champagne, brunch, beautiful weather and beautiful people.
Surprisingly, polo is actually affordable and not stuffy. You can purchase tickets from $10 and up. The dress is casual but of course with a Palm Beach flare. Guests often wear colorful attire, polo shirts and relax with a day of a thrilling sport, time honored tradition and excitement. At half time, you will get to see the crowds from the stands make their way to the field to stomp the divots, a long cherished polo tradition.
For those looking for the most action packed times to watch polo make sure to go during the finals of 20- and 26-goal matches. “These are duels between the best players from around the world riding the finest horses. Action is fast and furious. However, don’t discount the games leading up to the championships, especially if you’re a polo newcomer.”
