TOURNAMENT HISTORY

Established in 1980, the Association Cup is a national 4- to 8-goal tournament. Toledo-Steppenwolf was the initial winner with Bradock Alexander, Robert Puetz, Willie Gutierrez and Dennis Rogers. This year, the 2020 Association Cup will be hosted at New Bridge Polo & Country Club (New Bridge) in Aiken, South Carolina. After a six-year hiatus, the tournament returns strong fielding seven teams, including Out East, Brookland Plantation, Upatoi Green, Cooper Home & Stable/Peachtree, SIG, Triple Crown/La Bourgone and Skaneateles. Amongst the competition are Team USPA members, Hope Arellano (Out East) and Lucas Arellano (Out East).

The last time this tournament was played was in 2013 at Palm City Polo Club, LLC. After defeating State Farm with a three-point lead, Boca Polo was crowned as champions of the 2013 Association Cup. Although Boca Polo will not be returning this year, this USPA-national tournament is guaranteed to reignite action and passion for this classic tournament.

THE VENUE

Driving into the New Bridge Polo & Country Club (New Bridge) in Aiken, South Carolina, one may think they had just entered an argentine estancia. With its signature four-board black fencing and orange clay dirt roads, it’s no accident that the New Bridge Polo Club alludes to the current mecca of polo. Founded by amateur polo player Russ McCall in 2000, the club was created in partnership with Argentine professional Matias Magrini.

The astounding 861-acre New Bridge development boasts five world-class polo fields in a private gated community. While that may sound intimidating, McCall points out that the gates serve less as a barrier to keep people out, but rather as a means to keep the occasional escaped horse in. The atmosphere of the club remains true to its humble beginnings, unpretentious, in a natural wooded setting, framed by southern pines and surrounded by effortless tranquility.

The centerpiece of the club is the rustic colonial-style clubhouse. Constructed of old wood that was shipped from Argentina and assembled onsite, it brings the history and ambiance of the Argentine way of life to South Carolina. New Bridge offers country living without the inconveniences of country distances.
