Date: Tuesday, September 7, 2021
It's hard to believe that there is nearly the same number of days from the Opening Day of season 30 as to the start of the New Year. Sights are already turning to 2022 and the 31st season of the Newport International Polo Series, presented by Turkish Airlines. Opening Day will once again welcome an enthusiastic audience as USA faces an international rival to start the season on Saturday, June 4th. The first date to mark though is Friday, October 1, and the official start of our Pre-Season Sale.
Available on October 1 are:
Group Reservations: Offer a unique entertainment option for corporate and special events to enjoy the light-hearted atmosphere surrounding the matches for an entertaining summer afternoon gathering. Easy turn-key options in the Pavilion make hosting a snap whether treating clients and employees, wedding guests, or celebrating a milestone life event. Tailgate and Chalet reservations offer the DIYers the chance to plan every detail, whether going for a fun backyard picnic feel or an extravagant happening, great for family events to give the kiddos room to run and play.
"Pre-season Group Reservations give party hosts the window of advanced planning needed to put together larger gatherings and offer the most availability before the public Box Office opening leaves piece-meal group options," explains Ryan Fontaine, manager of sales and marketing. "Those with fixed dates or seeking specific opponents are advised to make their plans as early as possible."
This is a limited opportunity to ensure continued availability for individual customers when the Box Office opens to the public in the New Year. As always, dates in the peak of July and August and those featuring perennial favorite challengers like Italy, Ireland, Jamaica, and England are the first to sell out. Opportunities are first-come, first-served and availability will change quickly. See our Groups page and Polo Parties Brochure for more details. Minimum 20+ guests. Email inquiries to email@example.com

Hailing the return of international competition and venue capacity, the 30th anniversary season proved a welcome return to normalcy this year and has teed up another great season to come in 2022. Perennial favorite challengers are sure to return, along with the possibility of debut teams, and old rivalries reignited. Subscribing members can enjoy this summertime tradition to its fullest. Opportunities are limited so best to strike while the iron is hot. Sold online only.
The 2022 Newport International Polo Series begins on Saturday, June 4th, continuing every Saturday through the end of September. Teams from around the world and major U.S. cities face the home team, USA/Newport, in classic 6-chukker matches starting at 5PM / 4PM in September. Expert commentary and Jumbotron live-action coverage provide professional narrative for spectators on the Lawn, in Reserved Tailgates, and the Pavilion marquee. Special weekly features, fan prizes, concessions, opening and closing ceremonies add to the festivities with Pony Parade, Player's Salute, and Trophy Presentation. See schedule below for dates.
