Sunday: Polo match at Circus Club

 

Thirty-two men and women — amateur and professional polo players from the Bay Area, Los Angeles and New York — will compete for trophies in the finals of the first Silicon Valley Polo Classic, the ExpertQuote Cup, on Sunday, Sept. 25, at the Menlo Circus Club, 190 Park Lane in Atherton.

Opening ceremonies will begin at 10:30 a.m., with the last match estimated to end at 5 p.m.

The polo match will be engaging off field and on, says tournament director Christine Vermes. The "Stella Stomp," hosted by Stella Artois beers, will see spectators take to the field, libation in hand, to stomp down torn up turf. Local wineries will provide wine tasting.

General admission to the tournament is free. Spectators are encouraged to bring chairs and blankets for seating.

The Menlo Polo Club is hosting the tournament. Founded in 1923, the club, which is based at the Menlo Circus Club, is one of the oldest polo clubs in California. As a member of the United States Polo Association, the club plays as part of the Pacific Coast Circuit, home to 34 clubs with over 525 registered polo players.
