Texas Women's Open
A mere few minutes from downtown Houston, Texas, you will find the Houston Polo Club (HPC) located on 26 manicured acres. Established in 1928, HPC is one of Texas’ oldest clubs, comprised of the Bayou Club’s original fields and stables, as well as a tack shop, stick-and-ball field, hitting cage and covered arena. In addition, HPC has three fields in Brookshire, Texas, and access to over 18 other fields through private ranches. The club has proven to be a mainstay in American polo since its inception and has hosted and produced its fair share of notable professional players over nearly a century.
HPC has been providing the Southwestern Circuit with not only world-class polo, but the opportunity to learn and progress as an individual player. Houston’s league structure is considered to be one of the best in the country, and can accommodate any skill level. The polo school is run by 2-goaler and USPA Certified Polo Instructor Mark Prinsloo. The Houston Polo School offers an eight-week instructional course in both the spring and fall seasons that strives to nurture players as they develop their skills. Upon graduation from the polo school, players join the Margarita League. The next level in the nationally recognized Step Up Program is the 2-Goal League, followed by the Club League, an intermediate level in which players hire their own polo professional. Once graduated from the Club League, players have opportunities to participate in USPA sanctioned and national tournaments, as well as many tournaments held by the club.
Polo is played almost year-round with the club offering a fall and spring season, followed by summer leagues, winter arena and interscholastic polo. During the fall, HPC hosts numerous USPA tournaments including the Keleen and Carlton Beal Cup, Texas Open, and H. Ben Taub Memorial and a week of women’s tournaments that culminates with the Women’s Texas Open and U.S. Open Women’s Handicap.
