About Newport Polo: Newport Polo is the home of the Westchester Polo Club, America’s first polo club est. 1876, and charter member of the United States Polo Association, offering club member services for outdoor (grass) & arena polo, and polo instruction. The founding members, who hailed mostly from Westchester County, NY, established the club's summer headquarters and polo grounds in Newport, RI where its members annually convened for summer recreation. The original club in Newport remained active until 1929 and is credited for organizing the world's first international polo competition, the Westchester Cup. The Westchester Polo Club was revived in 1992 by President and delegate, Dan Keating. Colloquially know today as Newport Polo, the Club supports a vibrant polo training program continually introducing newcomers to the sport. It is home to the Brown University and Roger Williams University intercollegiate polo teams and the Newport Interscholastic polo team. Newport Polo also hosts the Newport International Polo Series, the popular 18-week summer exhibition series.
