PACIFIC COAST OPEN

TOURNAMENT HISTORY

Standing at a striking height of five feet, the glorious silver-and-gold trophy for the Pacific Coast Open is a dazzling sight. Crowned with an eagle supporting a globe and adorned with semiprecious stones, the trophy is mounted on a redwood base, featuring side panels depicting lively polo scenes. Initially titled the All American Polo Trophy, the cup was commissioned in 1908 by friends and members of the Coronado Country Club in Southern California.

Throughout the late 1920s until the early 1940s the tournament was hosted by numerous clubs throughout California. After World War II, the Pacific Coast Open moved to the posh and glamorous Beverly Hills Polo Club until 1952, when it took residency at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club (Carpinteria, California), where it remains today.

The 2020 Pacific Coast Open final featured a rematch of the 2020 America Cup®, between Klentner Ranch and Santa Clara, with Klentner Ranch defeating their opponents to end the high-goal season with a narrow 9-8 victory.

For the 2021 edition, six teams will take the field with defending champions Klentner Ranch seeking to reclaim their victory for the second year in a row and add to their impressive run in 16-goal competition at Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club. Joining them will be Antelope, BenSoleimani.com, Farmers & Merchants Bank, Lucchese and Santa Clara.

Amongst the competition are Team USPA members, Lucas Escobar and Nico Escobar (Santa Clara), Kristos Magrini (Lucchese), as well as Graduating Team USPA members Jesse Bray (Klentner Ranch), and Team USPA alumni Tomas Alberdi (BenSoleimani.com) and Jacob Klentner (Klentner Ranch).

PACIFIC COAST OPEN

TOURNAMENT FORMAT

Teams will play cross bracket. Each team plays three bracket games. Best four teams out of six by record will advance to the Pacific Coast Open Semifinals. Who beat who applies when two and only two tied teams have played each other. In all other ties on record, a USPA one-man shootout will break ties to advance to the Pacific Coast Open Semifinals

If two teams from each bracket qualify for the Pacific Coast Open Semifinals, then teams will play the opponent they have not played yet. If three teams from one bracket and one team from the other bracket qualify for the Pacific Coast Open Semifinals, then all four teams will draw for their opponent.
