NATIONAL SHERMAN MEMORIAL

NATIONAL SHERMAN MEMORIAL

TOURNAMENT HISTORY

The National Sherman Memorial, established in 1935, is played to honor George C. Sherman Sr. a giant of arena polo, and is one of the oldest arena polo tournaments in the United States Polo Association. Boston Polo Club (Georgetown, Massachusetts) is proud to host the prestigious arena tournament for the first time in 2021.

Known as the “father of indoor polo,” George C. Sherman Sr. was almost single-handedly responsible for organizing and refining this now-popular variation of the sport. He introduced the inflatable ball, redesigned the standard polo equipment for the arena game’s specific needs and modified the rules of outdoor play for arena use.

He was the founder and first president of the Indoor Polo Association (1915-1926), which merged with the USPA in 1956. He was zealous in bringing young players into the sport, presenting the Interscholastic Cup in 1928. Since all Intercollegiate and Interscholastic polo is now played in the arena, he may be said to have sired this invaluable training ground as well. The tournament was installed by his wife Helen and his son, Hall of Famer George C. Sherman Jr., an arena high-goaler who also made important contributions to the sport as a USPA Chairman and one of the founding spirits of the Museum of Polo and Hall of Fame.

In 2020, Avalon Farm (Margaux Buchanan/Katie Mitcham, Amanda Poor Roberts, Eugenio Ferrari) entered the final in high spirits ready to challenge Newport (Daniel Keating, Roger Souto, Tim Day) for the prestigious arena trophy. Holding a sizable lead by halftime, Avalon Farm’s early advantage made the difference in the second half, earning them an engraving on the George Carter Sherman Memorial Indoor Polo Cup, 14-10.

This years competition will field five competitive teams vying to be named the 2021 National Sherman Memorial Champions, including Boston Polo Club (BPC), AVID, Babson 1, Babson 2 and Vero.
