2012 Polo Season- Opens In Wellington Florida

2012 Polo Season- Opens In Wellington Florida 

International Polo Club Palm Beach opened High Goal Polo yesterday for the 2012 season. 

This year Polo- The sport of kings is bigger and better than ever. There are more teams coming to compete and more fields ready to host the games.

This is the ninth season of High Goal Polo but certainly Polo has been in Wellington a lot longer than that. 

There are 17 polo teams that have entered the following cups: 

  • Herbie Pennell Cup
  • Joe Barry Memorial Cup
  • Ylvisaker Cup 
  • C.V. Whitney Cup

There are lower level competitions that teams may enter also but the best of the best teams enter the high goal tournaments. There are very few players in the world that are ten goal players and ALL of them will be competing in Wellington this Polo season. 

A few of those players live in Wellington year-round. Julio Arellano, Kris Kampson and Nic Roldan. But players Adolfo Cambiaso, Facundo Pieres, Pablo Macdonough, Sapo Caset, Juan Martin Nero and Eduardo Estrada will be joining us this year as top players. 

If you look around closely you will also notice stars like Tommy Lee and others riding around Wellington. 

A lot of the games are free for spectators to come and watch. There are also venues you can rent for private guests and also tailgating spaces.

Let the games begin…
