International Gay Polo League Tournament 2022
Held at the International Polo Club Palm Beach, North America’s only high goal polo venue, the International Gay Polo Tournament draws top GPL players and avid spectators from around the globe for a weekend of grand horseplay.
From elaborate tailgate competitions to the constant flow of champagne, enjoy the festivities of the International Gay Polo Tournament in The Palm Beaches. GPL represents a wide range of ages, backgrounds and skill levels, and competes in mainstream matches and events while sharing enthusiasm for the sport. Dress to impress and plan on taking part in the quintessential divot stomp on Isla Carroll Field!
The Palm Beaches are the perfect place to explore for a different and luxurious gay escape. We recommend you stay in West Palm Beach and use it as your base to explore more than 30 charming towns and villages dotted along the I-95.
- Each year, follow the dashing players on several teams compete on Field #1 at International Polo Club where they will valiantly vie for the two prestigious trophies, Senator’s Cup and Founder’s Cup.
The Tailgate Parties
- The polo action is just one aspect of the competition at the International Gay Polo Tournament. The tailgating scene is just as competitive, with spectators creating elaborate themed parties in the hopes of winning the coveted Best in Show prize. You might stumble into a pop-up salon where the workers are in drag, a nightclub bumping DJ beats, or a wedding chapel where actual ceremonies are being performed. No theme is too over-the-top, and the party only stops when the last bottle of Champagne has been popped.
- The Gay Polo League (GPL) VIP Tent on tournament day is the ultimate in polo experience with table-side service, an open bar and VIP parking.
The event is the perfect mix of performance sport, and parties that are almost performance art. Here are our top events to attend over a fun packed weekend.
- The event kicks off at the Pavilion at the International Polo Club in Wellington, Florida on Friday night, with a Polotini MASK-querade.
- The celebration continues on Saturday as the gates open at 11:00 a.m. for either Tailgating or Lunch in the VIP Tent.
- Everything turns rosy or rosé on Sunday with an elegant field side brunch and the excitement of a 22-goal match of the USPA Gold Cup Finals.
The Gay Polo Tournament is held in Wellington, a charming village just west of West Palm Beach in central Palm Beach County and 66 miles north of Miami. Wellington is known for its equestrian community and hosting equestrian events, notably show jumping, hunting, dressage and polo.
