All Ivy Newport Polo & potluck Tailgate Picnic
Join local Ivy alumni clubs for a summertime potluck picnic and polo bash!
Saturday, July 8 from 3PM
The popular all-Ivy summertime Newport Polo Tailgate and Picnic at Glen Farms in Portsmouth, will hit the field Saturday, July 8. As Team Newport USA faces Team Italy, local clubs representing Columbia (who are kindly spearheading the event), Brown, Yale, Princeton, Dartmouth, and others will join for an afternoon picnic (from 3pm) and the classic 6-chukka polo match (from 5 pm).
Last year's gathering drew nearly 80 alumni from several clubs to watch a rousing polo match, which for many was their first encounter with the sport. We also received a special treat from a Newport Polo Team member, who gave us some background about polo and a quick lesson on how to follow the match.
Remember to bring food & drink for the potluck as well as lawn chairs!
Ticket Info: General admission is $15 for ages 16 and up. Children 15 & under are free. The Box Office opens to the general public on March 15. Tickets will be available here or through General Admission Tickets sold at the gate, from 1PM on game day.
