By the time the sport of polo arrived on Newport’s shores during the Gilded Age, it was already steeped in 2500 years of history & tradition, captivating newcomers as it swept the globe. Newport’s summer sporting set embraced the new pastime, establishing America's first polo club in 1876. A charter member of the United States Polo Association, Newport Polo remains a model polo club, hosting the Newport International Polo Series public exhibition matches for the community's enjoyment, supporting philanthropic causes, hosting tournaments, polo club member services and polo instruction year-round.
The Newport International Polo Series features teams from around the world & from major US cities competing against USA / Newport.
