Beach Polo, is one of my favorite events in Coronado, but with the Hotel del Coronado in the midst of a $200 million remodel,
Polo spectators will enjoy a new venue this month as the San Diego Polo Classic moves to the Del Mar Fairgrounds for the next two years to Del Mar.
San Diego Polo Classic by Polo America, will take place on September 28th at the Del Mar Arena. Just as beach polo was the social event of Coronado, the San Diego Polo Classic will be the social event of Del Mar.
They have a very exciting event planned, with 2 polo games, an open-bar cocktail party, informal modeling, a fascinator hat contest, half-time show, a post-game party with players, and much more…In case you’re wondering, during a polo match, players on horseback try to hit as many goals as possible, is very exciting!
Each team has four players. The match is broken into four time periods called chukkas, each lasting seven minutes. This year, The Tommy Bahama Team includes the Hawaiian Hurricane, Herman Louis DeCoite, who is returns to the shores of California. Herman is best known as a member of the legendary Los Angeles Colts from the pro days at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center. He is joined by two island superstars, Devon Dailey and Kawika Manoa. All three regularly play high-goal polo in Hawaii. They are sure to bring the roof down this year during exiting play against the powerhouse team, Porsche San Diego. The Porsche team includes five-goal player Alejandro Nordheimer, Santiago “Topo” Mendez, at four goals, and James a’Court, at three goals.
San Diego Polo is all about POLO, YACHTS, MUSIC, FOOD, DRINKS & Fashion, my favorite!
There are ticket options for everyone! From $25 for general admission, to Millionaire’s Row boxes at $400 and $800.
If you want to really enjoy the Polo Match, the Millionaire’s Row boxes is where you want to be! It seat 4 or 8 people (a front-row box of 4, or second-row box of 4). Each box includes a table dressed with linen and flowers. Millionaire’s Row box holders have the option to purchase a three-course meal with wine.
If you like to party like me, the Millionaire’s Row box holders is where you want to be.
First, on September 27th Millionaire’s Row Box holders will have the opportunity to have drinks and meet the Polo Players at the Pre-Game cocktail party from 6:00 to 8:00 PM aboard several incredible yachts.
