I would go more often if I lived nearby, but I wouldn't miss the annual match between US and Italy! It is so much fun, and the Pavilion offers great a great view with inexpensive cocktails while you enjoy the game.

Family enjoyed visiting and seeing a game, We participated in Queeche Vermont polo but have long since sold the ponies as we advanced to retirement age. This association has a first rate facility. Well worth a summer visit. Very enjoyable for all ages

Entertaining! Worth the time! Be sure to stomp the divets at half time (after the third chucka). Stay for the “sweaty hand slap” where the players ride the perimeter of the field and high five the fans! Don’t worry about getting all dressed up -...More
