Bring your family and friends to watch an afternoon of fast and exciting polo as intercollegiate polo alumni from across the country face off in the 5th Annual Intercollegiate Alumni Polo Tournament. Cheer on your favorite team, reunite with former classmates, and relax on the shady sidelines of the field - tailgating is encouraged! Join us before the match for a "Polo 101" demonstration explaining the basics of the game, and come out to the field at halftime for the traditional divot stomp. Proceeds from the match benefit Stanford Polo Club and intercollegiate polo.
Stanford Polo Club was founded in 1919 as part of the field artillery program for Stanford R.O.T.C., and while the club has undergone many transformations over the years and is no longer associated the military, it has stayed true to its legacy of strong student development, hard work, and the pursuit of excellence in polo. The Polo Club offers students the opportunity to learn about riding and polo, horse care and barn management, and it helps fulfill Stanford’s goal of providing a truly broad education. Day to day operation of the club is managed entirely by students, and with the help of dedicated volunteer coaches and a visionary advisory board, the Polo Club has continued to grow and develop into a more and more successful organization. This dedication has been rewarded by several Regional Championships and appearances at the National Intercollegiate Championship, and club members look forward to more victories in the future.
