“Polo is a social sporting event,” said Keith Chouinard, director of sales and marketing, Hotel Viking, “From divot stomping and meeting the players to sipping champagne on the sidelines and petting the ponies, it is no surprise more than 50 million people enjoy this global sport each year.”
The Newport International Polo Series brings together teams from around the world. In addition to divot stomping, the half-time tradition where fans get on the field and stomp down the torn up turf, spectators can visit vendor booths, meet other guests and relax. On select weekends, Newport Polo hosts special events for an additional cost. There’s a New England Lobster Bake on Aug. 6 when USA takes the field against France and a Jerk Grill on Aug. 20 when Jamaica faces off against USA. Matches take place on Saturdays through September at Glen Farm, a park-like setting on a portion of one-time manorial farm dating to the 1600s.
