H. BEN TAUB MEMORIAL

H. BEN TAUB MEMORIAL

TOURNAMENT HISTORY

The H. Ben Taub Memorial is an 8-goal National tournament held at Houston Polo Club in Houston, Texas. Established in 2015, the H. Ben Taub Memorial is named to commemorate Houston native H. Ben Taub, a medical executive, businessman and philanthropist. An avid polo player, Taub was very active in USPA governance serving as Southwestern Circuit Governor from 1998-2007.

In 2020, Bill Flick Ford limited Horsegate 2/Tonkawa to just one goal in the second half to claim the five-goal victory 9-4. The 2021 competition will field four competitive teams, including returning individual champions Jimmy Seward (Horsegate/Tonkawa), KC Krueger (BTA) and Mason Wroe (Pegasus/Propaganda).

Amongst the competition are graduating Team USPA member Cody Ellis (ML Bar Ranch) as well as Team USPA Alumni Mason Wroe (Pegasus/Propaganda) and Steve Krueger (BTA).

THE VENUE

A mere few minutes from downtown Houston, Texas, you will find the Houston Polo Club (HPC) located on 26 manicured acres. Established in 1928, HPC is one of Texas’ oldest clubs, comprised of the Bayou Club’s original fields and stables, as well as a tack shop, stick-and-ball field, hitting cage and covered arena. In addition, HPC has three fields in Brookshire, Texas, and access to over 18 other fields through private ranches. The club has proven to be a mainstay in American polo since its inception and has hosted and produced its fair share of notable professional players over nearly a century.

HPC has been providing the Southwestern Circuit with not only world-class polo, but the opportunity to learn and progress as an individual player. Houston’s league structure is considered to be one of the best in the country, and can accommodate any skill level. The polo school is run by 2-goaler Mark Prinsloo. The Houston Polo School offers an eight-week instructional course in both the spring and fall seasons that strives to nurture players as they develop their skills. Upon graduation from the polo school, players join the Margarita League. The next level in the nationally recognized Step Up Program is the 2-Goal League, followed by the Club League, an intermediate level in which players hire their own polo professional. Once graduated from the Club League, players have opportunities to participate in USPA sanctioned and national tournaments, as well as many tournaments held by the club.

Polo is played almost year-round with the club offering a fall and spring season, followed by summer leagues, winter arena and interscholastic polo. During the fall, HPC hosts numerous USPA tournaments and a week of women’s tournaments that culminates with the Women’s Texas Open and U.S. Open Women’s Handicap.
