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 GrouponLive deal: for $50, you get one VIP ticket to the second annual Philadelphia Cup polo match at the Brandywine Polo Club in Toughkenamon (a $100 value). The match will be held on Sunday, July 24 at 3 p.m., rain or shine. Doors open at 1:30 p.m. Admission is free for children under 12.
Located in the Brandywine Valley, the Brandywine Polo Club’s 300-acre facility is a pleasant, relaxing setting in which to enjoy the excitement of polo. The second annual Philadelphia Cup pits the Union League squadron of mallet-swingers against the Racquet Club polo team for the most riveting horse-mounted contest since Lincoln and Douglas jousted for the presidency nearly 500 years ago. A VIP ticket includes a half-time champagne divot stomp, access to the open bar and free food, and sideline views of the match. Throughout the equine steering and sphere striking, a covered 20'x40' members-only area gives VIP spectators shelter from rain and modestly sized meteor showers. Attendees to the Brandywine Polo Club are advised to dress to impress.
