Polo is Back!



Our signature event, the All-Ivy Polo and Tailgate has returned for a record seventh consecutive year. 

The popular gathering draws dozens of alumni from several Ivies. It is blast, as many attendees dress up ala Kentucky Derby style, with festive hats and enjoy cocktails and treats.  The event begins with a tailgate in the pre-marked spots right on the polo lawn. Alumni get a front row seat to the match; this year it's USA vs. Mexico.  It's "bring your own" for this gathering, which adds to the merriment of the day. The alumni's set up under tents with each school banner prominently displayed.  Look for the Blue Banner!  Roar!  

This year alumni leaders from Brown University, our long-time partners on this are taking the reins for this  years festivities that take place Saturday, Sept. 18 at Newport International Polo Grounds & Pavilion in Portsmouth Rhode Island.  Information is below for the event. Additional information is available by contacting Lisa Frappier, Brown Club president at  [email protected]
