Regional President's Cup

Tournament History

In 2019, Lockton (Jenny Benardoni, Tommy Costello, Nicolas Maciel, Shane Rice) defeated Ridgway Hemp (Beau Staley, Meghan Gracida, Carlos Hernandez, Memo Gracida) 11-9 to claim the Regional President’s Cup. Ridgway returns for a chance at redemption, along with four other teams, including Evergreen, Spindrift, Santa Ynez and Empire. All will battle it out on the field beginning Friday, January 31, with the final slated for Sunday, February 9.

Beginning in 2020, Regional President’s Cup tournaments held nationwide will once again serve as a qualifying tournament for the National President’s Cup. Encouraging participation at the 4- to 8-goal level, the return of this tournament format will bring together teams representing USPA Member Clubs around the country and restore the relationship between the two trophies. The 2020 National President’s Cup will be held at New Bridge Polo & Country Club (Aiken, South Carolina) at the height of the competitive season. The National President’s Cup shall give priority entry to first and second place Regional President’s Cup teams of the same year.
