Do you love horses and have always wanted to attend a fancy horsey-event? Well, here’s your chance: The Victory Cup Polo Match
is coming to Austin on Saturday, May 5th, 2018 (and we can get you in for free…).
I’m pretty excited. The only way I was ever exposed to polo is by reading the latest news and gossip about Prince Charles (who played polo back in the days) and the British Royal House in my Grandmother’s gossip magazines. My friends and I were fascinated by the Queen’s hats, embellished with feathers and organza silk, and pictured ourselves as the future Princess or Duchess of Such-and-Such at a polo derby by Prince William’s or Prince Harry’s side.
Anyway - back to the event. The Victory Cup Polo Match, which has been called “The Best Kentucky Derby Party in Texas” is a kid friendly and pet friendly annually event. Guests enjoy taking in the majesty of the horses, the sights of beautiful people and the thrill of heart pounding polo!
Dust off the lucky hats, pastel dresses and seersucker suits, mingle with the horses and players and have an amazing excuse to get dressed up and enjoy some awesome spring weather.
Get ready to cheer on several live polo matches leading up to a live broadcast of “the most exciting 2 minutes in sports” — The Kentucky Derby on a huge LED jumbotron screen on the polo field.
For the Kids
There will be a playground area with bounce castles and other kids activities. And of course there will be brown horseys, black horseys, white horseys, horseys with spots, and if you’re lucky, you may even see a unicorn!
What’s for Lunch? Where’s the Bar?
Enjoy food from Austin Chefs and Derby cocktails from dozens of Texas brands.
The VIP Golden Mallet Tent and an exclusive Founder’s Lounge is for guests who want to enjoy a more refined experience while they mix and mingle with premier event sponsors and partners and even the polo players.
What to Wear?
You'll see anything from blue jeans and flip flops to colorful sundresses, khakis and button down shirts. Feel free to get creative and playful and remember, this is your chance to get fancy. What’s more glamorous than a pair of oversized sunglasses? How about pearls, pocket square, bow tie? And don't forget the hat! And, ladies, polo clubs have a lot of grass and unpaved areas, which make high heels a bit impractical. It is a good idea to wear comfortable shoes.
There will be a friendly Best Dressed Man and Woman Competition and Victory Cup attendees are encouraged to get dressed up to enjoy a gorgeous spring afternoon.
The Victory Cup will be hosted on Saturday, May 5, 2018.
Gates open at 11 am for Golden Mallet VIP and Founder’s Lounge ticket holders and at 1 pm for General Admission ticket holders.
Victory Cheval Polo Club, 13628 Gregg Manor Rd, Manor, TX 78653.
