Season begins 3 January 2021
The United States Polo Association (USPA) and International Polo Club Palm Beach (IPC) have announced their 2021 high goal schedule, which will begin on Sunday 3 January with The Joe Barry Cup and will end on Sunday 18 April with the U.S. Open Polo Championship Final. Due to Covid-19 the remainder of the 2020 USPA Gold Cup was postponed, but there are plans to resume the tournament with the Semi Finals on Wednesday 10 February and the Final on Sunday 14 February. After the USPA Gold Cup Final, the 2021 Gauntlet of Polo will commence, returning for the third year, with the C.V. Whitney Cup beginning on Wednesday 17 February. The safety of staff, players and spectators are of the utmost importance, so the Club will be introducing safety protocols and the plans for spectators, grandstand seating and brunch in the Pavilion will be released once they have been fully formalised.
