The Kingston Polo Club offers a wonderful alternative activity for persons looking for something to do on a Sunday. An amazing ambiance just 20 minutes outside Kingston the Club is a relaxing environment for both adults and children. Food and drink are available on all match Sundays so anyone looking for a change should come and join us.
The highlight of the Kingston Polo Club season is the KPC League which runs over 12 rounds between January and the end of April. Round 1 of our League is also the day on which teams play for Doc Masterton Trophy. Dr. John Masterton remains the most famous and definitely one of the best Jamaican players ever and he has been a foundation stone in the Kingston Polo club for over 60 years.
The KPC League continues until the last Sunday in April at which time the player who has amassed the most points by playing on the most winning teams over the 12 weeks is awarder the coveted KPC League Trophy. These Sundays are a great opportunity for polo enthusiasts to come and spend a day at the club watching polo, eating lunch and having a drink or two with family, friends and the players in a very special environment at Caymanas Estates.
Polo in Kingston usually takes a break in May which usually coincides with the rainy period and gives the horses a little holiday to recharge their batteries for the second half of the season in June and July. The highlights of our summer calendar are the Players Championship and the Dennis Lalor Trophy.
The Dennis Lalor Trophy is usually played on the second Sunday in June and, like the Doc Masterton, the Dennis Lalor Trophy celebrates the work of the other Foundation stone of the Modern Day Kingston Polo Club. Dennis Lalor is the longest serving President in the clubs history and has ensured the clubs survival and revival over the last 25 years.
The season also usually includes the visits of at least a couple visiting teams including an annual visit from Newport, RI. In 2015 & 2016 we were very happy to entertain a number of visitors from the Denver Polo Club who chose to give up snow for the sun and fun of polo in Jamaica all the way through February and March and look forward to hosting them again next year.
The Players Championship is a Pro Am Tournament in which the club brings in 4 higher handicapped players from overseas to play with 3 club members each. This higher handicapped polo is very exciting and makes for a great final day culminating with a great after party as this Trophy brings to an end our season in terms of competitive polo.
