Honolulu Polo Club
USPA Centennial Cup Sept. 23
Team Hawaii Polo Inn vs. Team Beachcomber Realty


USPA's Hawaiian Island Polo Circuit
Honolulu Polo Club was honored to host the
USPA Centennial Cup.

This tournament was created in 1990 to celebrate 100 years
of the USPA as the governing body of organized polo in
the United States.  Historically polo in the USA began in 1876
when James Bennet Gordon organized a match after seeing
polo played in England. Polo was first played in Hawaii in
1880 at Palama Field, Oahu, Hawaii.
