For Immediate Release
Wellington, FL – March 23, 2020 – Please accept this message on behalf of the United States Polo Association (USPA), International Polo Club Palm Beach (IPC) and U.S. Polo Assn. Global Licensing (USPAGL). It is with great disappointment that we have determined that it is in the best interest of health and safety for our players, their families and team organizations, fans, and all the people that help to put on our polo events, for us to cancel the balance of 2020 Gauntlet winter season. We anticipate rescheduling the remainder of the 2020 USPA Gold Cup® tournament in late January 2021, prior to the start of the 2021 Gauntlet of Polo®.
We will be considering the feasibility of rescheduling the 2020 U.S. Open Polo Championship®, as well as options for changing the handicap level of the pre-Gauntlet tournaments next winter. We will be reaching out to all participating teams for their input prior to finalizing these decisions.
The USPA and IPC will work closely together to manage the maintenance of the IPC polo fields throughout the entire year and we will send you updates over the course of the off-season to show the progress of the field improvements. We are also anticipating adding two additional tournament fields to the allotment for next season.
We want to extend our sincere gratitude for all of your support throughout these difficult times. We hope you and your loved ones remain safe and healthy. For more updates, please visit uspolo.org.
