History of Polo in Oak Brook:
Polo has been played for more than 80 years at the historic Oak Brook Polo Grounds and everyone is invited to come out and watch the exciting "game of kings!" Since its inception in 1922, during the "golden age" of polo, world-class teams have come every summer to play on the immaculately groomed fields of the Oak Brook Polo Grounds. Founded by Paul Butler, patriarch of the Village of Oak Brook, the original Oak Brook Polo Club became the largest polo facility in the country by 1953.
The U.S. Open (Polo), the premier polo tournament in the country, was played at Oak Brook for 25 years, from 1954 to 1978, the longest it was ever played in one location. The Oak Brook Club was once considered to be one of the top summer polo clubs in America, and is still well-known throughout the world. It is the Village's Polo Committee's goal to restore Oak Brook's location and Club to its former level of prestige, and have already come along way with a number of very successful events in 2012 and 2013.
