REGIONAL PRESIDENT'S CUP

Tournament History

The Regional President's Cup has been played at clubs nationwide since 1998 and was first played for at New Bridge Polo & Country Club in Aiken, South Carolina, in 2011. Alan Martinez and Eddy Martinez, two members of the 2018 and 2019 winning teams, will return to compete this year for Upatoi Green and Hardscrabble. Joining them will be three additional teams hoping to claim the 2020 trophy.

Beginning in 2020, Regional President’s Cup tournaments held nationwide serve as a qualifying tournament for the National President’s Cup. 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 2021 National President’s Cup will be back 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.

In 2020, Hardscrabble had their sights set on an undefeated run through the tournament, but Panakeia scored the last three goals of the final including the golden goal from Del Walton to capture the thrilling 9-8 overtime victory. Returning in 2021 with two of their four players, Hardscrabble will seek to claim the 2021 title and will be challenged by returning Upatoi Green along with newcomers Peachtree, SIG and Foxdale Equine. Active Team USPA Members Hope Arellano and Lucas Arellano will compete for Peachtree, while Graduating Team USPA member Matt Coppola will join SIG.

Tournament Format

All teams will play two games in first round. Teams will then be ranked one through five based on record. In the case of a three-way tie, or ties between teams that have not played each other, a one-man shootout tie breaker will be used. Teams ranked fourth and fifth will have a play-off game to determine the fourth seed. Semifinal match-ups will be 1 versus 4 and 2 versus 3. Semifinal winners will advance to the final.

REGIONAL PRESIDENT'S CUP

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.
