TOURNAMENT HISTORY

The America Cup™, formerly known as the 16-Goal Championship, was first played in 1974 and is a national tournament currently held at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club in Carpinteria, California. Boca Raton holds the record for most tournament victories, claiming the cup in seven of the first eight years of competition, with John T. Oxley a member of each team.
