IPC and the USPA have penned a four-year agreement for hosting the USPA US Open Polo Championship, the most prestigious tournament in the United States. The tournament dates back to 1904 where it was first played at Meadowbrook Polo Club in Old Westbury, New York and it has been played at IPC since 2004.

“The best polo is played here,” said Peter Rizzo, CEO of the United States Polo Association. “We look at maximum participation. This is the second-highest rated polo event in the world, 26-goal polo is very difficult to field teams and this venue lends itself perfectly. It is beautiful; the weather is great so we’re excited that it is in the right spot. I’ve been told that within a 20-mile radius, there are about 100 polo fields. Polo is well-rooted into this community.”
