NATIONAL COPPER CUP®

Tournament History

Inaugurated in 1975, the National Copper Cup® has been played consecutively in Aiken, South Carolina, since 2010. Aiken Polo Club originally hosted the cup when it moved from Lexington Polo Club (Lexington, Kentucky), however as a result of a recent partnership among Aiken area polo clubs, 2017 marked the first year that New Bridge Polo & Country Club hosted the celebrated tournament. Throughout its relatively short history, several Hall of Famers have hoisted the cup on the trophy stage. Names such as George Hass Jr., George Bostwick, Carlton Beal and Stephen Orthwein grace the history pages of the USPA Bluebook, having been recorded as winners of the standout copper trophy.

Persistence paying off after seven trips to the National Copper Cup® Final in eight years, Skaneateles have dominated to claim the title the last three years. Although Skaneateles will not be returning this year, four teams will be battling for victory, including Foxdale Equine, Goose Green/Hutchinson Farm, Hit Air and SD Farms.

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.
