REGIONAL PRESIDENT'S CUP

REGIONAL PRESIDENT'S CUP

TOURNAMENT HISTORY

Established in 1998, the Regional President’s Cup has been reformatted in anticipation of the 2024 National President's Cup which will be hosted by the National Polo Center - Wellington (Wellington, Florida). Regional President’s Cup tournaments held nationwide now serve as qualifying tournaments for the National President’s Cup, bringing teams together representing clubs around the country for the opportunity to compete at NPC. The new format will encourage participation at the 4- to 8-goal level and restore the relationship between the two trophies.

Teams qualify to enter the National President’s Cup by winning a Regional President’s Cup. Any USPA Member Club can apply to host a Regional President’s Cup, however qualifying events will be awarded to only one Member Club in every circuit. The Florida Circuit, host of the National President’s Cup, will be the only exception, with four Regional President’s Cup events awarded.

There will be no team entry fee for the National President’s Cup and teams that qualify in a circuit outside the Florida Circuit will receive a $10,000 travel stipend.

The Regional President's Cup hosted by NYC Polo Club located in Patterson, New York, represents the Northeastern Circuit as the National President's Cup qualifying tournament. Fielding five competitive teams including Amaro, Caledon, GTFO, NYC Polo and Roxbury Raiders, each will battle for the title and their opportunity to earn a coveted spot in the National President's Cup.

NYC Polo Club will be taking advantage of the USPA's Tournament Support Program (TSP) for the Regional President's Cup, which provides eligible USPA Member Clubs with waived tournament fees, trophies or trophy reimbursements up to $1,200, one professional umpire and $2,500 in prize money at no extra cost.

The USPA originally created the Tournament Stimulus Package (TSP) to help member clubs host USPA events when the United States was emerging from the first wave of the COVID-19 crisis. The USPA wanted to continue to support member clubs with TSP benefits in 2022. Therefore, it extended and expanded TSP under a new name - the Tournament Support Program. Each USPA Member Club can obtain TSP benefits for two USPA events, with the option of a third under specific circumstances.

TOURNAMENT FORMAT

Each team will play two preliminary games with the top three teams automatically advancing to the semifinals. A playoff between the fourth and fifth ranked teams will determine the last semifinalist. The first ranked team will face the fourth ranked team and the second ranked team will face the third ranked team in the semifinals, with the winners advancing to the Regional President's Cup final.

If two teams have tied records and they did not play each other, the tie will be broken by a shootout. If two teams have tied records and they have played each other, the tie is broken by who beat who. If three or more teams have tied records, the tie is also broken by a shootout.

THE VENUE

Ideal for summer stabling and built on a historic cattle farm, NYC Polo Club at Haviland Hollow Farm in Patterson, New York, has made polo a year-round reality for those in the Northeastern Circuit. Conveniently located one hour north of New York City, the club’s central location is optimal for city commuters and a reasonable distance from nearby Greenwich Polo Club (Greenwich, Connecticut) and Mashomack Polo Club (Pine Plains, New York).

Focusing on adult leagues both outdoor and in the arena, NYC Polo Club is a true player’s club, introducing new players to the sport and developing those who want to advance. Offering the advantage of consistency in the saddle, NYC Polo Club enables its members to play eight months of the year rain or shine.

Helping many new players interested in learning the game get their start, NYC Polo Club specializes in taking beginners and dedicated players to the next level by concentrating on horsemanship and training. NYC Polo School’s active lesson program is run by head instructor Paul Kuhn, who has over three decades of experience teaching, coaching and playing polo across the United States, Zimbabwe, Australia and New Zealand. Together with his son David Kuhn, the father-son duo run the lesson program year-round with an emphasis on safety, and allow their students to build confidence in the arena before progressing to instructional chukkers and the coaching league.

Offering a variety of polo in a picturesque and family-friendly atmosphere, NYC Polo Club’s state of the art facilities can be enjoyed by the rising amateur, the professional and the casual spectator alike.
