Miami Polo World Cup 2013

Polo BPolo has long been the sport of royalty — an elegant affair played on horseback, it’s an exercise in natural grace as well as the unspoken connection between rider and horse.

While typically played on the grass, Miami Beach’s The Polo Life Club, decided to bring the sport to the natural feature for which the area’s best-known — the beach. In 2004, beach polo first debuted in Miami Beach, and has been growing in popularity every year since.

A beautifully groomed piece of beach makes for an ideal setting to take in the Maserati Miami Beach Polo World Cup. Expect lots of sun, perfect temperatures and plenty of adjacent activities, either right on the beach or in town. Cocktails, live music, great food, fireworks and much more are plentiful at the World Cup — and of course the event will feature some of the world’s best polo players.

Come and see what makes beach polo so unique to South Beach. Take in this incredibly graceful sport and enjoy the weekend-long party.

MIAMI BEACH POLO WORLD CUP

April 26-29, 2012

Yes, they play polo in Miami. The Sport of Kings has managed to secure a foothold on this side of the Atlantic. This coming April its shoreline will thunder with dozens of statuesque polo ponies as the Miami Beach Polo World Cup unfolds at 21 Street Beach. Kicking off with a parade and proceeding in elimination rounds of men’s and women’s polo championship matches, the event is free to beach-goers and also features paid premium seating in the grandstands, where champagne flows in a swirl of white, pink and baby blue.

Polo Life’s AMG Miami Beach weekend commences Wednesday night in the host hotel with a welcoming cocktail party where flush guests, celebrities and socialites meet and mingle with international riders, trainers and team owners. De rigueur after-hours dance parties will rock each night at area velvet rope nightclubs. The women’s matches begin Thursday morning in bracketed elimination rounds, culminating in a trophy presentation at day’s end. The men’s matches fill the streets of South Beach with a horse parade Friday morning and continue through Sunday afternoon with playoff rounds and a final awards ceremony at sunset.

If you should like to spend a weekend rubbing elbows with the horse-and-mallet set,VIPtickets are available on the Miami Polo website and also sold at the grandstand box office on match day. If you prefer watching from the comfort of your own lounge chair or beach blanket for gratis, check the schedule online and stake your claim to a court side patch of sand by the sea. Matches take place from 2-5 p.m. Expect heat and sun, so bring along H2O, powerful sunscreen and a spiffy beach umbrella.
