BELMOND EL ENCANTO ROBERT SKENE TROPHY

Belmond El Encanto Robert Skene Trophy

Tournament History

The Robert Skene Trophy commemorates the career of a Santa Barbara polo legend. "Hurricane Bob" was 10 goals at the height of his career, played in the Westchester Cup, U.S. Open Polo Championship® and Argentine Open, and survived three years as a prisoner of war in the infamous Changi prison in Asia during WWII. He was deeply connected to the Santa Barbara Polo Club, managing it for several years in the 1960s and playing a pivotal role in keeping the club alive during a time of financial crisis. He was inducted into the Polo Hall of Fame in 1990 and died in his beloved Santa Barbara in 1997. Santa Barbara's 16-goal tournament series is now in full swing with five teams vying for the tournament trophy.

Belmond El Encanto Robert Skene Trophy Format

All teams get two bracket games. Rankings will be determined based on: A. Record. B. Who beat who, if two and only two teams are tied on record who have played each other, and C. USPA one man per team shootout tiebreaker in the event of a three way or more tie, or two-way tie between teams who have not played each other. For the semifinals the top ranked team and second ranked team play in separate semifinals. If possible, place third and fourth place teams so both top ranked teams play someone different in the semifinals. The top ranked team will draw between third and fourth places if not possible for both first and second place teams to play someone different.
