NATIONAL AMATEUR CUP

NATIONAL AMATEUR CUP

TOURNAMENT HISTORY

Established in 2004, the National Amateur Cup is a 4-goal outdoor tournament. Originally hosted by Lexington Polo Association in Lexington, Kentucky until 2015, following a three-year hiatus, the National Amateur Cup was revived on the West Coast in 2019. After a three-year run at Empire Polo Club (Indio, California), the cup will take place in the Lone Star State and Two Wishes Polo Club (Lockhart, Texas) will host the National Amateur Cup for the first time in its nearly two-decade history.

In 2021, Hanalei Bay (Krista Bonaguidi, Ryan Kerley, Robert Payne III, Daniel ‘Cacho’ Galindo Jr.) seeking a three-peat championship (2019, 2020) were pitted against La Fortuna/Blazers (Elise Bigelow, Pat Powell, Kyle Fargey, Luis Saracco). A strong second half performance from La Fortuna/Blazers duo, Saracco and Fargey, sealed the 7-5 upset. Read article here.

Assembling a fresh field of talented competitors, this year's National Amateur Cup will feature four teams including, Bar Spur, Oak Bend Farm, Scuderia and Proton Polo.

Two Wishes Polo Club will be taking advantage of the USPA's Tournament Support Program (TSP) for the National Amateur 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.
