The Greenwich Cup
The 2013 Greenwich Polo Club season draws to a close on Sunday, September 8, with The Greenwich Cup, which showcases the club’s last polo match in an afternoon of festive ceremonies. At 1:15 p.m., the afternoon kicks off with a Ferrari car show, during which guests can marvel at the chrome steeds as they graze on the lawn. Later, a fashion show bestows awards to the day’s best-dressed spectators, and furry friends trot through the grounds during a pet parade. The big event begins at 3 p.m., when human and equine athletes tear up the field during a rousing polo match that also includes the divot-stomping ritual, in which fans wander onto the lawn to patch up the grass and keep earthworms’ condos from flooding. A closing ceremony and trophy presentation ends the afternoon, marking a new reign to the club’s reining champions.<p>
