U.S. Open Polo Championship®

Tournament History

The most prestigious polo tournament in the United States, the U.S. Open Polo Championship® is the apex of the GAUNTLET OF POLO® held during the Florida high-goal winter polo season that attracts fans and polo enthusiasts from across the United States and around the world.

The U.S. Open was originally conceived as a non-handicapped alternative to the Senior Championship tournament. The first U.S. Open had only two teams, the Wanderers and the Freebooters. It was held at Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx borough of New York City. Four 15-minute chukkers were played, with a seven-minute break between each chukker.

After the inaugural U.S. Open in 1904, the tournament was not played again until 1910, when it grew to include six teams. It resumed at Narragansett Pier, Rhode Island, where it was played for several years before relocating to what became its longtime home, Meadowbrook Polo Club in Old Westbury, New York. In 1954, the U.S. Open moved to Oak Brook, where it remained for 22 years, followed by an eight year stint at Retama in San Antonio, Texas. In the late 1980s and into the 1990s, the tournament circulated among several clubs throughout the United States, including Eldorado, Lexington, Palm Beach and Royal Palm. In 2004, marking one hundred years since the tournament’s inception, the U.S. Open relocated to the International Polo Club Palm Beach, where it has been held ever since.

The U.S. Open Polo Championship® perpetual trophy was first presented in 1910 by Joseph B. Thomas. Designed by artist Sally James Farnham, it was inspired by a seventeenth century tureen. The tall, ornate silver cup features horses and riders in relief around the top perimeter and the bottom bowl of the cup, as ornate rearing horses rise from the base of the cup.

Stolen in 2002, it was recovered a few short weeks later and is currently kept in the care and custody of the Museum of Polo and Hall of Fame in Lake Worth, Florida.

After defeating each of their opponents in the C.V. Whitney Cup® and USPA Gold Cup®, Pilot carried their undefeated streak into the final leg of the GAUNTLET OF POLO® and claimed the 2019 U.S. Open Polo Championship® title. Pilot is the only team to capture the title as a part of the GAUNTLET OF POLO® after the 2020 tournament was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was the first time the U.S. Open Polo Championship® was cancelled since World War II in 1945. Returning in 2021, the tournament features nine teams competing for the $250,000 prize, including C.V. Whitney Cup® champions Park Place. Click here to learn more about the GAUNTLET OF POLO®.

U.S. Open Polo Championship®

Tournament Format

Teams will be placed into three brackets. Teams play within their bracket.

After bracket play, all teams will be ranked 1-9 based on win-loss record, followed by net goals, then gross goals. (Note that net and gross goals are being used to rank in this case to avoid using a shootout for seeding per rule g. page 151 USPA 2021 rulebook.)

Teams ranked 8th and 9th will have a playoff game.

After the playoff game, teams will enter the quarterfinals. Teams ranked 1-4 will draw from the remaining teams (5,6,7,8) for quarterfinal pairings. Semifinal pairings will be done by draw with the winners advancing to the final.
