Will Rogers made his home in Beverly Hills during the early twenties. In 1922 Will bought the property above Sunset Boulevard commanding a view of western Los Angeles, Santa Monica and the Pacific Ocean, where he built a small weekend cottage. In 1926, he built a polo field on the land. Will was a big Polo Fan. He built the field in order to play with his famous buddies Spencer Tracy, Gary Cooper and Walt Disney. The field is the only outdoor polo field in Los Angeles County. Featured in many movies and TV shows, the polo field features a gentle slope that forms an area for viewing the polo action. There is no finer spectacle in the world of sports than polo. The horses are thoroughbreds, breathtakingly beautiful and conditioned to perfection. The players are unique athletes, successfully balancing horsemanship, gamesmanship and ball control while galloping at top speeds.
To begin the events mounted players will explain the rules, the equipment, and the horses to your guests to enhance their enjoyment of polo. Then there will be three polo matches: the team’s names after each of your sponsors.
In between the matches, there will be a champagne “divot stomp” on the field. After the matches, the Polo Club will host a reception in your group’s honor and pose for photographs with your guests and sponsors.
