Silver Cup

Tournament History

The Silver Cup® has been called many names throughout its illustrious 117-year history. Originally established as the Junior Championship, it was first played in 1900. Philadelphia 1st, made up of Joshua B. Lippincott Jr., Mitchel G. Rosengarten Jr., Albert E. Kennedy and John F. McFadden, bested Rockaway 8 ½-3 ¼ to win the inaugural Cup.  

The Junior Championship attracted such historic teams as Rockaway, Cooperstown, Meadow Brook, Old Aiken and Laddie Sanford’s Hurricanes, to name a few. The 1935 Junior Championship boasted the largest field in the tournament’s history with 11 teams vying for the coveted trophy at Burnt Mills Polo Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. Aiken Knights, consisting of Dunbar W. Bostwick, Winston F. C. Guest, James F. Curtis Jr. and George H. Bostwick, triumphed over Texas 13-3.

In 1938, the Junior Polo Championship was renamed the National Twenty Goal Championship. During this period the trophy was carried home by teams such as Bostwick Field, Milwaukee, Aurora, San Antonio and Oak Brook. The tournament took its present name, the Silver Cup, in 1974. Contemporary Silver Cup® winners have included Bud Light, Old Pueblo, Isla Carroll, Goose Creek, Lucchese and Farmers & Merchants Bank.

Many winners of the cup hail from the Polo Hall of Fame—from J. Watson Webb and Tommy Hitchcock, to Robert Skene and Cecil Smith. In fact, no fewer than 50 Polo Hall of Famers have won the Silver Cup®. Out of the 50 Hall of Famers, W. Ray Harrington Jr. and Charles Smith have earned the most Silver Cup® titles with eight wins each.

Five teams contested the 2016 USPA Maserati Silver Cup, which took place July 2016 at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club in Carpinteria, California. Farmers & Merchants Bank and Lucchese faced off in the final, thrilling the crowd with a wide-open match ending 10-7 in favor of Farmers & Merchants Bank. The Silver Cup is returning to the East Coast after being played in Santa Barbara since 2011; Greenwich Polo Club will host the 2017 Silver Cup in Greenwich, Connecticut.

The Venue

Greenwich Polo Club

Home to the celebrated White Birch polo team, Greenwich Polo Club, in Greenwich, Connecticut, is synonymous with the name of founder Peter Brant. A polo icon and team owner exemplar, Brant’s passions extend beyond the boards into the intellectual world of contemporary art. There is more than meets the eye at this modern club situated in the bucolic rolling hills of Conyers Farm. 

On the cusp of their thirty-sixth season, Greenwich Polo Club has become the premier high-goal venue in the Northeast. Attracting world-class polo professionals including a long list of polo hall of famers, teams are drawn to Greenwich’s three immaculate fields used exclusively for USPA sanctioned tournaments. During their season ranging from June to mid-September, all efforts are focused entirely on upper-level competition (16-20 goal). Concentrating on a superior polo experience, Greenwich aims to enamor spectators with the sport and serve as a beacon for aspiring players.

The Brant Foundation Art Study Center, which is dedicated to the education and awareness of contemporary art, provides a breathtaking backdrop to all the polo action. There are always sculptures or artwork on display outside which can be seen from both the Foundation and the polo fields including the present sculpture, “Big Clay" by Urs Fischer, as well as "Ali Frazier," a sculpture by artist Richard Serra. Admission is free and open to the public Monday through Friday with an appointment, and open every polo Sunday from 1:00 – 3:00pm ET to the public. 

Of the 50 matches played over the summer for three prestigious tournament titles (The Monty Waterbury, Silver Cup® and East Coast Open), nine are open to the public. Over 3,000 spectators from New York City, and Fairfield and Westchester Counties descend upon the Connecticut countryside for the featured Sunday 3:00pm ET matches. The juxtaposition of contemporary art in the context of the luscious Greenwich landscape creates an experience that is not likely to be found anywhere else in the country.
