The USA-England polo rivalry continues this weekend, in Portsmouth
Team USA will be defending its victory from last season in the Newport International Polo Series, continuing the polo rivalry between the two nations that began in Newport in 1886. Back then, it was first international sporting competition of its kind, predating the modern-day Olympics, and that famous tournament called the Westchester Cup has been contested 17 times over the course of 125 years. The match will conclude with a champagne trophy presentation of the Vanderbilt Cup. Presenters will include delegates from Portsmouth, Hampshire England, the namesake of our Portsmouth, on the occasion of the 375th anniversary of its founding.
WHERE: The polo grounds, Glen Farm in Portsmouth
WHEN: 5 p.m.; Saturday, August 31
