TOURNAMENT HISTORY

Established in 1980, the Association Cup is a national 4-to 8-goal tournament. Hosted at Palm City Polo Club, LLC (Boynton Beach, Florida) in 2013 the tournament fell into a six-year hiatus. The classic tournament was reignited in 2020 by New Bridge Polo & Country Club in Aiken, South Carolina.

In 2021, LBL (Alison Patricelli, Jack Whitman, Alan Martinez, Trevor Niznik) entered the Association Cup final heavy favorites, as challengers SIG/Chukkers of Hope (Deep Singh, Malia Bryan, Matt Coppola, Willie Hartnett) rose from a field of nine competitive teams. Coppola accounted for all but one goal for SIG/Chukkers of Hope, but a balanced LBL leaned on strong play and eight goals from Martinez to claim the Association Cup 12-9. Read article here.

Making a lasting impression on the 2021 fall polo season at New Bridge Polo & Country Club with an 8-goal undefeated season, reigning Association Cup defending champions LBL will be back to defend their title alongside Team USPA alumna Kylie Sheehan, but will face a tough task against five teams vying for the title including Cummings Insurance, Hutchinson Farms, Skaneateles, Hardscrabble and Cooper H&S/Tipler Law.

New Bridge Polo & Country Club will be taking advantage of the USPA's Tournament Support Program (TSP) for the Association Cup, which provides eligible USPA Member Clubs with waived tournament fees, trophies or trophy reimbursements up to $1,200, one professional umpire and $2,500 in prize money at no extra cost.

The USPA originally created the Tournament Stimulus Package (TSP) to help member clubs host USPA events when the United States was emerging from the first wave of the COVID-19 crisis. The USPA wanted to continue to support member clubs with TSP benefits in 2022. Therefore, it extended and expanded TSP under a new name - the Tournament Support Program. Each USPA Member Club can obtain TSP benefits for two USPA events, with the option of a third under specific circumstances.

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 an 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. The clubhouse also conveniently houses a player’s bar, restaurant and outdoor asado area for post-game parties. Spectators are invited to sit on the porch with a spectacular view of Field 1 to watch the featured Sunday matches. New Bridge offers country living without the inconveniences of country distances. Cottage-style bungalows are situated on residential lots lining Field 1, as well as larger estate houses with the option to buy or build.
