Greenwich Polo Club update

There have been a few changes in the Greenwich Polo Club’s lineup since I last reported on the start of the season on June 1.

The July 13 match will now feature local artists and their works.

On Aug. 31, it’s the Virginia’s House of Hope Charity match from noon to 5 p.m. The second annual “Benefit of Hope” will have an open bar, tastings, entertainment and the time-honored tradition of halftime divot stomping, all in support of the charity’s Tugboat Program, which provides qualified candidates from underprivileged backgrounds with a career start in the maritime industry. (After the three-week program, each student is certified to work as a tugboat deckhand, which could ultimately lead to becoming a captain with a six-figure salary. House of Hope guarantees that each graduate is hired.) Tickets are $350 VIPs, $250 individuals, $50 children ages 11-15. Children 10 and under are admitted free.

Then on Sept. 7, it’s the annual 20-goal USPA Royal Salute Jubilee Cup, complete with a Scottish piper and a host of celebrities.

On July 13 and Sept. 7, the gates open at 1 p.m. and the match starts at 3 p.m. Admission is $40. For more, visit
