Oak Brook Polo Club Welcomes Back Spectators for Sunday Matches
Limited Capacity Allows for Tailgate-Only Setup for 70-80 Vehicles.
Oak Brook Polo Club (Oak Brook, Illinois) is thrilled to announce the return of spectators for their 2020 summer season of matches through September beginning Sunday, July 12. In following the Illinois Governor’s Phase 4 Industry Guidelines of the Restore Illinois Plan, which was announced last week, the Oak Brook Polo Club immediately removed their signature game-day layout. Now, the field will be transformed into an “all-tailgate” spectator environment with social distancing enforced.
The Club’s all-tailgate plan will be limited to a maximum of 70-80 parking spots or 35 to 40 vehicles per sideline. Each spot will be between 10-15 feet in length with a 12-15-foot buffer zone between each spot. A maximum of six guests per tailgate are allowed and must arrive in one vehicle upon entry. General parking will not be permitted onsite nor will shuttle services be offered. Vehicles will be assigned to a specific spot upon arriving. Guests of each tailgate will not be permitted to leave their assigned spot unless to use the restroom or nearby handwashing and sanitizer station.
Any activity that does not efficiently promote social distancing has been removed for the safety of guests. This includes concessions, bars, sponsor displays, merchandising as well as the popular “divot stomp.” Other polo-themed activities will need to be viewed from a spectator’s assigned tailgate spot, including the team parade and awards ceremonies.
