Greetings all and welcome to the Fall 2016 edition of Sunday Polo at Aiken Polo Club’s historic Whitney Field this Sunday September 25th. Whitney boasts 134 years of continuously played polo and we are thrilled to have you join us and be a part of it! We are proudly hosting two great events right now: the USPA Governors Cup 6 goal and the USPA Copper Cup 12 goal. For a complete schedule of each of these tournaments, please visit our events page.
We have added two wonderful new events to our line-up of tournaments for the fall of 2016. We are offering the USPA Aiken Women’s Challenge featuring some of the world’s finest women players competing in two flights of polo over five days October 12-16. We will also be adding the USPA Middle School League tournament hosted by Firestar Farm at their arena located at 3289 Camp Rawls Road, Wagener, 29164 the weekend of October 8-9! We can’t wait to have you come out and see polo’s up-and-coming superstars in action.
This week we invite your to invest in your future by meeting and greeting with our generous food and beverage sponsor Edward Jones Investments representative Alicia Kough and her team. Thank you Alicia for your generous sponsorship, and Mouth of the South for providing refreshments! The bar will be provided for your enjoyment by The Willcox and sponsored this week by Aiken Polo Club.
At halftime we welcome you to test your skill by hopping up on the hitting horse and giving it a shot. Please plan on helping us put the field back into shape for the second half by participating in our traditional divot stomp.
We also welcome you to view the beautiful new brick floor that has just been completed in the Alan Lyle Corey III pavilion this week. We thank Geoff and Shannon Ellis for heading up this project and Enviroscape for all the hard work in getting it finished as planned for your enjoyment. The commemorative bricks will be installed later this season so there is still time to order one if you haven’t already. Please go to our Buy A Brick page for an order form or to buy online.
