Sunday Public Matches June 10, 2018 – Sunday Sept. 9, 2018

Opening Day to Feature Race Between

Greenwich Polo Club’s Fastest Polo Pony and a Zero DSR Electric Motorcycle

Greenwich, CT (May 29, 2018) -- Greenwich Polo Club will kick off its 37th season of high-goal

polo with opening day on Sunday, June 10th. Sunday’s game is open to the public and will

feature the first match of the first 16-goal Shreve, Crump & Low Cup. Polo teams Hawk Hill

(Philip MacTaggart, Dylan Rossiter, Gringo Colombres and Lucas Diaz Alberdi) and Huntsman

(Dillon Bacon, Segundo Merlos, Toro Ruiz and Tomas Garcia del Rio) will take to the field at

3:00 p.m. for an action-packed match, gates open at 1:00 p.m.

Opening day will get started with a race between an electric motorcycle and a polo pony! The

event begins at 2:45 p.m. and will feature a Filipacchi Zero DSR Electric Motorcycle racing up

the field alongside one of Greenwich Polo Club’s finest polo ponies. With a press of a button,

the Zero DSR can switch from Eco to Sport mode, and will have no problem mastering the

terrain of the polo field. While the Zero DSR may have the initial advantage, a polo pony can

accelerate up to 35MPH in a blink of an eye and can spin a 180 on a dime. Polo players will be

driving both the motorcycle and horse in a race for bragging honors of “fastest on the field.”

The best ticket to the match is the new Players’ Lounge VIP at Greenwich Polo Club, co-hosted

by Connecticut Cottages and Gardens and furnished by Design Within Reach. The Players’

Lounge will feature a meet and greet with polo players, live music, premium bar with The Cup

Bearer and exclusive The Macallan, Veuve Cliquot and Ketel One tastings each Sunday.

Tickets are $150 with access for two guests to the Players’ Lounge with VIP parking, bistro and

open lawn seating, and much more. Private lounge suites for 6, inclusive of food and beverage

are available starting at $1,500.

Each polo Sunday from 1-3 p.m, fans may also have the opportunity to tour The Brant

Foundation Art Study Center, dedicated to promoting the education and appreciation of

contemporary art and design, which is located adjacent to the field and is featuring an exhibition

of works by Joe Bradley, Oscar Tuazon, and Michael Williams, on view from May – October


Just because the match ends doesn’t mean the fun has to! The Veuve Clicquot After Polo will

keep the good times rolling with live music and DJs each polo Sunday at 6PM by the Pony Bar.

For just $25 per person, polo fans can join the after party, meet their favorite polo players while

enjoying a glass of Veuve Clicquot champagne with entry fee.

Greenwich Polo Club continues to elevate the polo experience to make every match an event to

remember. Whether fans choose to picnic on the sidelines or go the VIP route by purchasing

grandstand boxes or private cabanas, there are plenty of options to delight even the most

discerning guests. Fans can enjoy delicacies from food trucks such as Caffe Bon, Dough Girls,

Gyro Uno, LongsFord’s Ice Cream, Box Car Cantina, Hapa, Lobster Craft, and more. The Cup

Bearer will be hosting the Pony Bar and creating the ultimate polo bar experience at the Players’

Lounge with the support of Tastings NYC. Palmer’s Darien will provide a full menu of food and

drinks for those with private lounges, cabanas and box seating.

Saks Fifth Avenue will host the half-time divot stomp every polo Sunday, with guests searching

for the Saks token on the field and the winner receiving a special gift. Other great partners and

sponsors this season include Societe Generale, Hastens, Loews Hotels, 11 Ravens, Fernet

Branca and more.

Polo matches are open to the public every Sunday June 10th – September 9th (some dates

excluded). The inaugural 16-goal Shreve, Crump & Low Cup will be played June 10th and June

17th, followed by the United States Polo Association-sanctioned Monty Waterbury on June 24th,

the Silver Cup® on July 8th, 15th and 22nd, with the season concluding with the East Coast Open

on August 26th, Sept. 2nd and 9th.
