Polo In The Country

The eleventh annual "Polo In the Country" -- a fun filled afternoon of sport and entertainment for adults and children alike--will take place on Sunday September 15, 2013 at the Norfolk Hunt Steeplechase Course, 240 North Street, Medfield, MA. Gates open at 11:00 a.m. Activities begin at 12:15 p.m. Polo begins at 1:00 p.m.

The event, presented by the Norfolk Hunt Club, raises funds for the preservation and protection of recreational space in Medfield, Dover, Sherborn and the surrounding communities.

Three types of seating are available: general admission (bring your own chair), reserved tailgate spots and reserved table seating. General admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children, payable as you enter. Tailgate spots at field side are $75 by advance reservation. Table seating is $25 per seat or $200 per table of eight and must be reserved in advance. To purchase tickets, (508) 250-9953 or (617) 281-1699 or email norfolkpolo@gmail.com.

This year's match will pit Norfolk Polo against Dedham Polo. Both teams are comprised of players who have competed throughout the United States, Europe and South America. "Polo In the Country" is the only polo event open to the public in the Metrowest area.

The afternoon flies by quickly, as entertainment and amenities surrounding the game provide additional excitement for spectators. Children may take pony rides, participate in an old fashioned Candy Toss, get autographs from the players and meet hounds from the Norfolk Hunt kennels. Spectators will enjoy the half-time entertainment provided by a Parade of Norfolk Hounds and a performance by the popular Barnstable Barn Burners Precision Equestrian Drill Team.
