TOURNAMENT HISTORY

The 2021 National President's Cup returns to New Bridge Polo & Country Club in Aiken, South Carolina for the third year. The National President’s Cup has an illustrious 50-year history. Formally known as the Eight Goal Inter-Circuit, it was first played in 1969. The inaugural Eight Goal Inter-Circuit was held at Brandywine Polo Club in Toughkenamon, Pennsylvania, with teams traveling from the Northeastern, Southeastern, Northwestern and Midstate circuits vying to win the coveted trophy. In 1974, the Eight Goal Inter-Circuit was renamed the National President’s Cup and since then the tournament has been played at USPA Member Clubs nationwide.

The final of the 2020 National President’s Cup came down to two undefeated teams, Bottega (Hope Arellano, Adam Snow, Nachi Viana, Joe Post) and Hardscrabble (Mason Lampton, Jack Whitman, Polo Baez, Pelon Escapite). A well-rounded Bottega team excelled on defense, limiting Hardscrabble’s opportunities, while producing a consistent attack to capture the 15-10 victory.

The 2021 edition will feature an incredible field of ten teams battling to claim the prestigious National President's Cup. While last year's championship team will not be amongst the competition, returning competitors include 2020 National President's Cup champions Adam Snow (Tipler Law/Cooper Home & Stable) and Hope Arellano (UN-STA-BLE) and finalists Jack Whitman (LBL) and Pelon Escapite (Field One). The Team USPA program will be represented by Active members and siblings Hope Arellano and Lucas Arellano.

As the country emerges out of the COVID-19 crisis, the USPA established opportunities to support USPA Member Club events through the use of the COVID-19 USPA Polo Tournament Stimulus Package, which provides eligible USPA Member Clubs with waived tournament fees, trophies or reimbursements, one professional umpire and $2,500 in prize money per tournament at no extra cost. Offered to each club for the first two USPA tournaments of 2021, New Bridge Polo & Country Club will be taking advantage of the program for this tournament.

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.
