Houston Polo Club News Nov 2011


  The Houston Polo Club




Date:  11/3/11




Only 2 weekends left to enjoy Sunday polo!

... And we saved the best weather for last.

It is now officially "polo weather", so you won't want to miss this Sunday!  Join us for the Founder's Cup, starting at 3 o'clock.

This is our last weekend of "regular" polo, before the Ladies officially take over, so make sure and get to the Club early to avoid traffic.  Also, extra tickets may be purchased online at www.thehoustonpoloclub.com

, to save time at the gate.


Thanks again to St. Thomas' Episcopal School Pipe Band for their outstanding performance at Sunday polo!




Don't Forget

   • On questionable weather days, log onto the HPC website and click "Weather Update" under the "Club" tab, for a real-time update!
   • Please be aware that no outside beverages are allowed at HPC on Sundays.  Armando's will provide concessions at every game!

   • Due to the burn ban at Memorial Park, no smoking will be allowed on HPC grounds, until further notice.

Club Facts

The Houston Polo Club is now the 3rd largest polo club in North America, in terms of playing members!

Member Boxes

Just a reminder that attendance at the Club has grown to the point where we are utilizing almost every Reserved box in the Grandstand.  If you have special guests and would like to arrange for Reserved seating, please contact the club by COB each Friday!


Parking at HPC

Due to continued growth and limited space, we are no longer able to accommodate visiting guests in the Member Parking lot.  All guests of HPC members will be directed to park in the lot adjacent to the office.  Thank you for your understanding.
