The Scouting Report
Farish Field at the Houston Polo Club quakes under crashing hooves as polo matches unfold across the historic grounds, beginning with the season opener on April 6. On April 13, the club hosts the 2014 USPA Seniors Tournament, a third-annual event featuring experienced polo players vying for victory. The following week caters to children instead, with an Easter egg hunt following the polo match on April 20. Matches typically last anywhere from 90 minutes to two hours, during which time fans can step away from the action to refuel with eats from the new Red Oak Grill, which serves food and drinks from Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. Fans can also stop by the Houston Polo Club Tack Shoppe to pick up polo souvenirs to remember their visit and maybe get an autograph from their favorite horse.
Houston Polo Club
Located on 26 sprawling acres just a short distance from downtown, The Houston Polo Club has been treating humans and hooves to gripping polo matches played on lush terrain since 1928. During the season, weekly scheduled matches take place on Sundays. Spectators get to watch these equine bouts from the Red Oak Lawn, where they can also brush up on their polo lingo as they witness every exciting goal, bump, and hook.
