POLO TAILGATING – POSH WITHOUT PRETENSE
Tailgating at polo matches has become legendary – even more so than the game itself. The unique ambiance of the sport sets the stage for pomp and pageantry unlike any other event in the world. From a simple picnic to elaborate spectacles of grandeur, you are only limited by your imagination – and anything goes. Themed fetes, summer dresses, seersucker suits, wide brims, fascinators and feathers – preppy fashion takes center stage. Few sports allow you to get so close to the action. The display of athleticism between horse and rider is majestic – your heart races with every swing of the mallet and sip of champagne. Eight horses gallop madly down the field as you hob nob with revelers and nibble on your movable feasts. Come enjoy the most accessible and well-heeled event in the world, right here in Westport, CT.
ATTIRE & ESSENTIALS
❖ Wear comfortable shoes. Flat or wedge-heeled shoes are your best option; high heels are not recommended, as your heels will sink into the turf, making walking difficult.
❖ Bring layers just in case it gets chilly or windy. Don’t forget SPF and sun protection.
❖ Don’t overthink it. Dress classy, dressy-casual, but don’t think you have to wear an extravagant dress and a big matching hat.
❖ All spectators are encouraged to participate in the Divot Stomp during half time.
❖ Umbrellas of any sort (rain, parasols, shade, etc.) need to be safe and secure so they don’t blow away (cause harm/spook horses) or obstruct view.
❖ Parents. Please supervise your children.
