Palm Beach International Polo Season

International Polo Club Palm Beach, 3667 120th Avenue South, Wellington, FL 33414

Spezialalarm: The United State Polo Association (USPA) announced on March 17 that it would suspend all USPA tournaments and events for the next 14 days.

The Sport of Kings
If the characters from “The Crown” or “Downton Abbey” vacationed in the United States today, they most certainly would spend their days enjoying the one-of-a-kind festivities at the International Polo Club Palm Beach, where $10 tickets and field-side brunch are American traditions worth observing.
Each January through April, the world’s premier polo players and polo enthusiasts head to South Florida for top-level competition during Palm Beach International Polo Season. Located in Wellington, the polo club presents weekly and often daily events, including the C.V. Whitney Cup and U.S. Open Polo Championship, followed immediately by the International Gay Polo Tournament, April 2-5, 2020.


$10 Tickets or Field-Side Champagne Brunch
Polo is not just for old-timey British ruling classes: The South Florida polo scene is welcoming to all. For a mere $10, general admission tickets are available to see the spectacle of galloping horses, swinging mallets and quirky traditions, including divot stamping, where spectators take to the field at half-time to replace the divots left by quick-footed horses and poorly swung mallets. Make your own tradition and go in style with deluxe veranda seating or splurge for field-side champagne brunch at The Pavilion. Or make a full day of it — during the polo season, the club serves all your vacationing-in-style needs with lunch and dinner, spa treatments, poolside dining and drinks, croquet tournaments and private tennis lessons.
From Beginners to Gladiators
Getting into polo doesn’t mean even having to jump on an actual horse. The International Polo Club Palm Beach has two riding simulators for those seeking the polo thrill without the skill: the Stick and Ball Trainer or the Cross Trainer for general riding, polo, cross-country jumping or dressage simulations. Introductory lessons start at $100 per hour for a fun, easy way to get a taste of the sport. Seasoned polo fans should check out the new and very popular high-speed version of polo that pits two teams of three “gladiators” against each other in a smaller arena during the fall season.

More Fun Things to Do in Wellington
Wellington is equestrian central. The Palm Beach International Equestrian Center hosts the Winter Equestrian Festival where, each January to April, riders from 2 to 70 years old and from Olympians to amateurs compete for millions in prizes atop more than 6,000 highly trained horses. The center is a sight to behold with more than 18 competition arenas on 500 acres of purely equestrian-focused grounds. The festival draws riders from every state and 52 countries as well as 250,000 spectators over the 12-week event. Jeden Samstagabend füllen 10,000 Fans die Tribünen, um das Hauptereignis zu genießen: der Saturday Night Lights Grand Prix, mit der berühmtesten Springshow der Woche, Unterhaltung und mehr als 100 Lebensmittel- und Einkaufsverkäufer.
Beyond the playing field, there’s excitement to be had at Lion Country Safari just northwest of the International Polo Club Palm Beach. Feel like you’re on an African safari as you drive right past lions, rhinos and gazelles at Florida’s only drive-through safari adventure. Get out of the car for a brief hike to experience Florida’s native species in their native habitat at the 30-acre Peaceful Waters Sanctuary. Or let your creative juices flow at the Art Cellar in Wellington, where you’re encouraged to color outside the lines while sipping on a glass of wine.
