Ticket Policies:

Refunds:

Refunds for purchased polo match admission tickets or for tailgate parking reservations must be requested in writing by the customer, via email, at least 7 days prior to the ticketed event (by noon on the previous Friday) sent to: agnes@nptpolo.com. There is a $15 restocking fee for Tailgate Parking cancellations.  A refund of the face value of the ticket(s) will be provided; handling & service charges are not refundable. Please include as much information as possible, including your order number and the specific portion of the order you wish to cancel, to be refunded. The refunded amount will be reversed to the credit card that was used in the original purchase unless otherwise noted in your request. A purchase cannot be exchanged for a different item; it can only be voided for a refund if requested 7 days prior to the event, and a new order must be placed for the other item.

International Polo Charity Ball:  refunds must be requested in writing by the customer, via email, at least 14 days prior to the ticketed event (by noon on July 23, 2021) sent to: agnes@nptpolo.com.

Rain Policy:

Polo is an outdoor sport, subject to weather conditions out of Newport Polo’s control.  It is Newport Polo’s intention to hold the match on the appointed date if at all possible.  The match will stay on schedule until such time as game conditions are deemed to prohibit the match start.  In order to conduct the match, it may include having a Rain Delay, i.e. delaying the start time on the same day, or Postponement to the Rain Date, due to weather-related unsuitable game conditions prior to the start of the match.  The Rain Date is always the following day, Sunday, at the originally scheduled time.  Unsuitable field conditions are typically the cumulative result of multiple factors, therefore difficult to predict precisely when they might affect a change to the match schedule; it could occur prior to or after the start of the match.

In the occurrence of a match postponement to the Rain Date, all original polo match tickets will be applied to the Rain Date.  If the Rain Date must be canceled at any point, prior to or after its start, due to weather-related unsuitable game conditions, the match will not be rescheduled.  NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES WILL BE MADE EXCEPT WITH THE PURCHASE OF OPTIONAL TICKET INSURANCE.

Modern Luxury Polo Lounge: In the occurrence of a match postponement to the Rain Date, catering will be provided on Saturday as scheduled, as per the caterer's refund policy.  Catering will not be provided on the Rain Date.  In the rare occurrence that the match is postponed by 8AM on the preceding Thursday, it may be possible to postpone the catering to the Rain Date; ticket holders will be notified by email.

In inclement weather, always check the Match Status recording on our Info Hotline (401) 846-0200 x2 and for ALERTS on this website, both of which are updated with any status change for the impending match.

We are not likely to have advanced notice of a match cancellation due to weather-related field conditions sooner than the start of the match, 5pm / 4pm in September because it is our intention to have the match at the original time and date if at all possible.  Match officials will assess actual conditions before making a determination; schedule change based on a weather forecast is unlikely.

Ticket Insurance:

Optional ticket insurance may be purchased to receive a refund of the ticket's face value in the event the Rain Policy goes into effect.

The non-refundable Ticket Insurance cost is:

$4 per Adult Lawn Admission Ticket

$6 per Pavilion Admission Ticket

$30 per VIP Polo Lounge Admission Ticket

$16 per Tailgate

$25 per Chalet

Ticket Insurance Terms and Conditions

    • If the Rain Date is played as scheduled, no refund will be available.
