The Palm Beaches Play Host to the ‘Sport of Kings’
POSTED ON December 21, 2016 - 5000 North Ocean
They have called Polo the “Sport of King’s” for nearly 2,000 years and every winter International Polo Club of Palm Beach (IPC) plays hosts to the sports largest events. As the players and thoroughbred horses entertain the large crowds, patrons of IPC mix and mingle with some of the most elite clientele in The Palm Beaches.
While the polo match itself is the center of attention, the glamorous social scene surrounding the sport is important to note. On Sundays, the International Polo Club hosts a luxurious brunch featuring more than 80 delectable gastronomic selections, as well as live entertainment and free-flowing bottles of Champagne.
Patrons enjoy the spectacle of thoroughbred horses charging down the field, the solid click of mallet on ball and the pop of Champagne corks. One of the most anticipated aspects of the match is the divot stomp, made famous in the movie Pretty Woman.
Polo matches are open to the public, with a wide range of seating that includes grandstand viewing, field tailgating, lawn seating, the aforementioned field-side Champagne brunch at The Pavilion and exclusive sponsor boxes.
The 2017 Palm Beach Polo Season will open on Sunday, January 1, and will conclude 17 weeks later with the USPA 113th U.S. Open Polo Championship® final on Sunday, April 23. Polo matches are open to the public, with a wide range of hospitality and guest seating that includes elegant grandstand viewing, field tailgating, stadium seating, field-side champagne brunch at The Pavilion, and exclusive sponsor boxes.
