Arena polo isn't for everyone, but in this environment I don't know how anyone could enjoy it. Overcrowded with inebriated, loud fools who aren't even watching the game. Been here a few times at the bequest of box holders; it's always that way so I won't be going back.

Twilight Polo is a fun thing for a summer evening. The announcers are witty and the game moves fast. You can bring food and drink with you but they ask not to bring glass (except wine bottles). We saw glass but respected the rules and brought plastic glasses and containers. It's best to get there early if you would like... More

What I liked most about this event was that the venue - though packed - was the low noise level. My wife and her friend could easily carry on a normal conversation, which was pretty much the point of going. We wanted something to do with one other couple on a Saturday night that would enable conversation and didn't require... More

We attended Twilight polo again on Saturday night. Beautiful night out to see three arena polo matches (3 on 3).

A popular summer activity where we can casually entertain clients and friends. Very clean, beautiful setting and great sport. Lovely venue for nice picnics.

We were there last year and truly enjoyed ourselves. This year we saw a much more organized event and the crowd was about twice the size. This is a unique sport - two teams of three inside a large corral where the ball the horse riders strike stays in play until they achieve a score. This visit they had a... More

We went for the 4th of July celebration and it was the best!!! There were activities set up for children, helicopter demonstrations and fly overs which were very exciting. I really enjoyed the polo exhibition, which this area is known for and after seeing the exhibit plan on coming back to maybe watch a match or more as it was... More

We have attended a few times and always have lots of fun. We love sitting on the hill, eating, drinking and watching the game. It is a great event for all ages.

My husband and I went in late August and had the best time. It's a great thing for couples or families. Pack a picnic and go! The lawn fills up fast. Bring chairs if you plan to stay for all 3 games. They have porta potties (with lanterns). We can't wait go next year!

I'd never seen a Polo Match and had a much different idea than what I saw here. It was in a large corral type structure with higher walls which got much higher at each end. It would remind you a little of a hockey rink. Three players to a team and 4 five minute Chukkers (quarters). There were three matches.... More
