The season will begin on Sunday, January 3, 2021 with the Joe Barry Cup and will conclude on Sunday, April 18, 2021 with the U.S. Open Polo Championship Final.
Prior to the start of the 2021 GAUNTLET OF POLO series, the remainder of the 2020 USPA Gold Cup, which was postponed due to COVID-19, will be played. The 2021 GAUNTLET OF POLO will return for the third year to the U.S. Polo Assn. Field on Wednesday, February 17, with the start of the C.V. Whitney Cup. IPC will also be welcoming back the U.S. Open Women’s Polo Championship beginning on Wednesday, March 10, and concluding with the final on Saturday, March 20.
Plans regarding spectators, stadium seating, and brunch in the Pavilion are still being finalized and will be released soon. The safety of staff, players and spectators are of the utmost importance, so the club will be introducing various safety protocols. Please visit InternationalPoloClub.com for updates regarding the new procedures.
Due to COVID-19, the 2020 season was unexpectedly cut short with both the USPA Gold Cup and U.S. Open Polo Championship postponed. The four semifinalist teams will compete for the USPA Gold Cup a year later for a chance to claim the second trophy in the 2020 GAUNTLET OF POLO.
