PLEASE NOTE: RESERVATIONS CANNOT BE EXCHANGED FOR A DIFFERENT EVENT. Refunds for polo match tickets must be requested in writing by the buyer, via email, at least 7 days prior to the ticketed event (by noon on the previous Friday) sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org. (Tailgate & Chalet reservations may be eligible for refunds up to 24 hours prior to the event, subject to resaleability.) For all eligible refund requests, a refund of the face value of the ticket(s) will be provided; a $15 processing fee will be assessed on each refunded transaction; nonrefundable fees include 3rd party handling & service charges, and ticket insurance. Rebooking a new reservation is at the customer's discretion. For a refund request, please include as much information as possible, including the date of the match, the name on the order, and the specific portion of the order you wish to cancel, to be refunded. The refunded amount will be reversed to the original form of payment tendered at the time of purchase. Safety mandates do not waive refund policies. Refunds require scheduling, for professional handling; please allow up to 30 days to receive refund.

Reservation Changes - Newport Polo reserves the right to make necessary changes to Ticket Holder's reservation, including but not limited to, reassignment of the location of reserved area(s), modifications to venue seating and layout, and allowable occupancy of reserved area(s). Reservation changes and acts of government regulation do not waive refund policies.
Polo is an outdoor sport, subject to weather conditions out of Newport Polo’s control. It is Newport Polo’s intention to hold the match on the appointed date if at all possible. The match will stay on schedule until such time as game conditions are deemed prohibitive to start the match. In order to conduct the match, it may include having a Rain Delay, i.e. delaying the start time on the same day, or Postponement to the Rain Date, due to weather-related unsuitable game conditions prior to the start of the match. The Rain Date is always the following day, Sunday, at the originally scheduled time. Unsuitable field conditions are typically the cumulative result of multiple factors, therefore difficult to predict precisely when they might affect a change to the match schedule; it could occur prior to or after the start of the match.
In the occurrence of a match postponement to the Rain Date, all original polo match tickets & reservations will be transferred to the Rain Date. If the Rain Date must be canceled at any point, prior to or after its start, due to weather-related unsuitable game conditions, the match will not be rescheduled. NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES WILL BE MADE, EXCEPT FOR TICKETS THAT WERE INSURED WITH TICKET INSURANCE AT THE TIME OF TICKET PURCHASE.
Ticket insurance is offered at the time of checkout. Also at checkout, the website requires your acceptance of these Terms & Conditions to complete a ticket purchase.
In inclement weather, it is your responsibility to check the Match Status recording on our Info Hotline (401) 846-0200 x2 and for ALERTS on this website, both of which are updated with any status change for the impending match.
We are not likely to have advanced notice of a match cancellation due to weather-related field conditions sooner than the start of the match, 5pm / 4pm in September because it is our intention to have the match at the original time and date if at all possible. Match officials will assess actual conditions before making a determination; a schedule change based on a weather forecast is unlikely.
Newport Polo is not responsible for refunds of private service arrangements or contracts due to changes in the polo match schedule, including postponement or cancellation.
Optional ticket insurance may be purchased to receive a refund of the ticket's face value in the event the Rain Policy goes into effect.
The non-refundable Ticket Insurance cost is:
$4 per Adult Lawn Admission Ticket
$6 per Pavilion Admission Ticket
$20 per Tailgate
$25 per Chalet
Ticket Insurance Terms and Conditions
Ticket Insurance may be exercised for refunds in the following circumstances
Private Parties: Please refer to your rental agreement for cancellation and refund requirements.
A NEWPORT POLO TICKET IS A REVOCABLE LICENSE AND DOES NOT CONFER ANY PROPERTY RIGHTS OR INTERESTS ON THE HOLDER. NEWPORT POLO RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REVOKE THE LICENSE GRANTED BY ITS TICKET AT ANY TIME AND FOR ANY REASON IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION. TICKET HOLDER AGREES THAT ANY FAILURE TO ABIDE BY NEWPORT POLO POLICIES, PROVIDES AN APPROPRIATE BASIS FOR NEWPORT POLO’S REVOCATION OF ITS TICKET (AND ALL SEASON TICKETS, WHERE APPLICABLE) WITHOUT NOTICE OR REFUND. IN ADDITION, NEWPORT POLO MAY REFUSE ADMISSION TO, OR EJECT FROM NEWPORT POLO PREMISES, ANY TICKET HOLDER, WITHOUT REFUND, IF THE HOLDER FAILS TO COMPLY WITH ANY NEWPORT POLO POLICIES APPLICABLE TO CONDUCT AT NEWPORT POLO EVENTS OR IS DEEMED TO BE DISORDERLY. INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR, ABUSIVE LANGUAGE, OR INTERFERENCE WITH THE PLAY OF THE GAME MAY RESULT IN EJECTION FROM NEWPORT POLO PREMISES (WITHOUT REFUND), ARREST, FORFEITURE OF TICKET PRIVILEGES AND OTHER LEGAL ACTION.
THE HOLDER OF THIS TICKET VOLUNTARILY ASSUMES ALL RISK AND DANGER OF PROPERTY LOSS AND PERSONAL INJURY INCIDENTAL TO THE SPORT OF POLO AND RELATED ACTIVITIES AT NEWPORT POLO PREMISES, INCLUDING SPECIFICALLY (BUT NOT EXCLUSIVELY) THOSE RELATING TO THE STRUCTURE AND STRUCTURES & EQUIPMENT & FURNISHINGS SET UPON THE VENUE, AND CONDITIONS OF THE POLO GROUNDS AND VENUE, AND THE DANGER OF BEING INJURED BY FLYING OBJECTS INCLUDING BALLS AND MALLETS. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE TICKET HOLDER IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ALL CLAIMS OF ANY NATURE AGAINST THE PARTICIPATING POLO CLUB, MANAGEMENT, OWNERS, PLAYERS, AFFILIATED ENTITIES, AND THEIR AGENTS, LICENSEES, VENDORS, EMPLOYEES, INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS AND REPRESENTATIVES (COLLECTIVELY THE "RELEASED PARTIES"), AND RELEASES AND DISCHARGES THE RELEASED PARTIES FROM ALL CLAIMS, LIABILITY, COSTS, EXPENSES, DAMAGES OR LOSSES (WHETHER DIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL AND WHETHER ARISING UNDER STATUTE, FROM NEGLIGENCE, PERSONAL INJURY, DEATH, PROPERTY DAMAGE OR OTHERWISE) ARISING FROM OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE GAME OR EVENT FOR WHICH THIS TICKET GRANTS ADMISSION, NEWPORT POLO PREMISES, OR ANY SERVICE PROVIDED OR ANYTHING SOLD THERE NOTWITHSTANDING THAT IT MAY HAVE BEEN CAUSED BY THE NEGLIGENT ACT OR OMISSION ON THE PART OF SUCH RELEASED PARTY OR PARTIES.
The holder of this ticket is subject to Newport Polo rules and regulations including smoking restrictions in the vicinity of others, and all laws and ordinances in effect in the Town of Portsmouth and State of RI, including leash laws and littering.
Newport Polo is the exclusive owner of all copyright and other proprietary rights of the event and shall have the unrestricted right and license to use the ticket holder's likeness as included in any broadcast (live or recorded), telecast or photograph taken in connection with the event. The holder grants permission to Newport Polo and licensees to utilize the ticket holder's image or likeness incidental to any live or recorded video display or other transmission or reproduction, in whole or in part, of the game to which this ticket grants admission, for any purpose whatsoever including commercial purposes.
All sales are final unless the Refund Policies are met. Newport Polo’s event schedule is subject to change for any reason at any time (including match dates, times, and opponents). Newport Polo reserves the right to make adjustments to reservations, as necessary, including for compliance to Group Reservation policies, and to safety mandates which may affect its regular venue layout, including but not limited to location, spacing and occupancy. Should such mandates go into effect, reservations will mirror venue adjustments. Aforementioned changes to schedule, venue and reservations do not constitute cause for refund nor waiver of refund policies. If the game specified on a ticket is rescheduled for any reason including due to a rain-out, this ticket will be valid for the rescheduled game date and time, and the ticket holder will not be entitled to a ticket exchange or refund for any reason. Handling & service charges are not refundable at any time. If the game specified on this ticket is suspended for any reason, including due to weather conditions, and the opinion of the umpires is that a significant portion of the game has been played to constitute a match, the remainder of the game will not be rescheduled, and the game will be considered complete. Ticket holders for such game will not be entitled to any refund, exchange or credit. Newport Polo will not provide a ticket exchange or refund for any counterfeit tickets purchased in the secondary market. Lost or stolen tickets purchased online can only be voided and exchanged upon request by the ticket purchaser.
