What You'll Get
Polo combines the pageantry of horseback riding, the clean-cut elegance of rugby, and the novelty of hearing horses neigh in a British accent. Hear whinnies in the charming dialect of Colin Firth with today's Groupon: for $49, you get one VIP ticket to the England vs. USA polo championship game at the Brandywine Polo Club (a $100 value), located in Toughkenamon. The match will be held on Sunday, Sept. 19, at 3 p.m., rain or shine.
Located in the Brandywine Valley, the Brandywine Polo Club’s 4,000-person-capacity facility is a pleasant, relaxing setting to enjoy professional polo. This customized-for-Groupon deal includes a special parking pass, access to the open bar and free food, and a sideline ticket to the match. The Atlantic Ocean–spanning polo match, presented by the Brandywine Polo Club and the British Officers Club of Philadelphia, pits the U.S. squadron of mallet-swingers against the United Kingdom's Combined Services Polo Team. For newcomers to the sport of polo, this event will offer an ideal introduction to its marriage of equine-steering and sphere-striking, all played out on a tournament-sized polo field measuring 300 yards by 160 yards. Experience the thrill of a game-winning goal, often leading to the winning coach getting doused with a cooler of scalding Earl Grey tea.
Attendees to the Brandywine Polo Club are required to dress to impress—ladies should wear sundresses and take part in the event's fancy-hat competition, while men are advised to don collared shirts and nice slacks, and leave the tuxedo T-shirts at home. A portion of the proceeds from this match will go toward the Wounded Warrior Project, which raises public awareness and aids severely injured American servicemen and servicewomen.
