After a sold-out season in 2016, Newport Polo is responding to a rising demand for earlier preseason reservations for the Alex and Ani Pavilion. Each season, the Pavilion’s private decks and tent are reserved for polo parties to celebrate important occasions, entertain top clients, prospects or employees with one-of-a-kind appreciation events, and celebrate upcoming nuptials with family and friends.
Annual polo gatherings add a jubilant fanfare to the matches. In 2016, we saw an unprecedented demand for Pavilion seating, which sold out every weekend. Previously, groups were not able to make their reservations until January. This year, we have opened pre-season Pavilion group bookings on Nov. 1 to meet the demand for seating.
Premium center-field seats in the ALEX AND ANI Pavilion for the renowned matches of the Newport International Polo Series offer reserved seating for groups in private seating areas for exclusive use. Furnished with tables for 4, 6 or 8, amenities include reserved parking, bar service, table linens and floral centerpieces. Your choice of caterer, or opt for our all-inclusive professionally hosted entertainment package with hors d'oeuvres and cocktails for a ready-made event on select match dates.
“Pavilion parties offer hosts a great value to create a fun and unique polo party with amenities for easy entertaining,” explains Ryan Fontaine, Marketing and Sales Manager. “Walk-in ready furnishings, full-service bar and wait-staff at the ready, and guaranteed central location to view the match - it’s no wonder that Pavilion seating is the preferred choice.”
The 2017 Newport International Polo Series begins on Saturday, June 3rd. Weekly polo matches are held every Saturday, June – September, starting at 5pm (4pm in September). See below for the full list of 2017 dates.
