Newport Polo Breaks Ground on Newport Life Cabana Club

Date: Thursday, May 11, 2023

Newport, RI (May 18, 2023) … The Newport International Polo Series, presented by Turkish Airlines, announces the addition of the Newport Life Cabana Club, a collection of premium entertainment suites this season, in a joint announcement by Cabana Club sponsor, Newport Life Magazine.

“This is a bold new improvement at the polo grounds that caters to midsize groups wanting a turn-key, furnished party suite”, explained Dan Keating, Polo Series founder. “Without displacing any of the traditional areas for picnicking on the lawn, the Cabanas also free up the Pavilion for the majority of attendees that are smaller parties of 4-8 spectators.”

Created on raised platform decks, each unit will feature tented outdoor lounge seating, an indoor cabana space with bar and banquet furniture, and a mezzanine overlook, for up to 38 occupants. Four Cabanas are planned for this season, described in detail on the Groups page of our website, and available by reservation with the Newport Polo office through the Contact Us form; several matches have already sold out.

“We are thrilled to support this new amenity, creating the Newport Life at Newport Polo,” adds Katelyn McSherry, Publisher of Newport Life Magazine. “A ribbon cutting is planned for Opening Day, June 3.”

The Newport International Polo Series is weeks away from launching its 32nd season, for a run of 18 weekly polo matches every Saturday from June through September at 5pm/4pm in Sept.  Visit Groups for more information about all the group entertaining options at the matches, while tickets for parties of 1 to several hundred can be purchase directly from each event's page from our list of events this season.
