Current weather conditions at the Polo Venue in Portsmouth:
Matches have rarely been cancelled; teams are likley to play through most summer conditions. Our 24-hour Info Line provides up to-the-minute status of the impending match: 401-846-0200 x2.
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 for Saturday matches 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.
