The Palm Beach Fall polo season is in high gear with a full schedule of medium goal tournaments at Grand Champions Polo Club.  This year Grand Champions is bringing high-goal polo to its Wellington fields with the 16-goal North American Cup and 20-goal USPA National tournament. This is a first for GCPC and a wonderful addition to the usual roster of top players, teams and fine equestrian athletes.

USPA players 8-goal Nic Roldan, 8-goal Jeff Hall, 7- goal Luis Escobar, 6-goal Kris Kampsen Californian 6-goal Jason Crowder,  Piaget team Captain Melissa Ganzi, Audi Team Captain Marc Ganzi and local high-goal favorites Juan Bollini, Sugar Erskine, Brandon Phillips and Hector Galindo will be teamed up with veteran players and up-and-coming stars for great polo action.

The rosters and line-ups will change from tournament to tournament as teams are configured to build player skills and performance.  You may see two opponents going mallet to mallet one week who are then both aiming for the same goal the next.  Grand Champions Polo Club is focused on developing player skills, teamwork and high quality polo.  Grand Champions offers the top high-goal stars of today playing alongside seasoned pros and younger players who might be experiencing their first tournament action at this level. The constant is great polo and great fun.

Grand Champions Polo Club is a wonderfully relaxed and easily accessible location where polo fans and locals come to watch and to play in weekend tournaments. Families with kids, dogs on leashes and picnic lunches are most welcome. Park your vehicle field-side to tailgate or bring your favorite chair and watch the action up close. The dress code for spectators is as casual as the atmosphere.  The polo, however, is fast, action packed and ready for season!.
