Polo: An Aiken tradition since 1882
We’re celebrating 134 consecutive years of polo on Whitney Field, home of some of the finest players in the world. More than a century and a half ago, Aiken became the Winter Colony retreat for members of New York, Boston and Philadelphia society who escaped the cold weather each December to winter in the mild South. This colony shaped much of Aiken in its image and the Winter Colony ambience was influenced by equine sports, including polo. By the turn of the last century, Aiken was the polo capital of the South. We appreciate our glamorous past and look forward to an exciting future.
Join us for a match each Sunday during the season! Games are at 3:00 pm at historic Whitney Field on Mead Avenue! We are currently on summer hiatus. The 2016 fall season starts up on September 13 and will run until the first week of November.
