International Polo Club Palm Beach
3667 120th Avenue South, Wellington
Chic women and dapper men, a delectable brunch and champagne toast, people-watching, and a sexy scene is always a perfect combination for a Sunday outing. Add to that the fierce and competitive sport of polo and galloping thoroughbred horses and you have a pretty good reason to make the one hour trek up north to Wellington for the International Polo Club in Palm Beach. Whether you’re a first-time spectator or a veteran polo fan, the International Polo Club is the place to “see and be seen” while enjoying the festivities and thrills of high-goal polo during the 17-week season, which ends on April 24
The International Polo Club offers an unparalleled experience of excitement, drama, competition, and hospitality. For 17 weeks, players, ponies, and enthusiasts descend upon Wellington for the pounding of horses’ hooves, the solid click of a mallet on ball, the pop of a champagne cork, and the exciting revelry of thousands of fans united every Sunday. The Sunday Champagne Brunch has become the ultimate destination for a celebrity-studded day of gourmet food, fine champagne, high fashion, and top flight polo. The lavish brunch features over eighty gourmet items, drink tickets, and a champagne toast at the Lilly Pulitzer Patio at The Pavilion.
