The Milwaukee Polo Club is very sad to have to report that there will not be a season this year. All of the original shareholders from over 25 plus years ago are no longer playing polo and there are not enough remaining players to sustain continued operations. Consequently, the polo grounds have been sold to the Milwaukee Ultimate Club for their use playing Ultimate Frisbee. We understand that an arrangement with the Ultimate Club and the remaining polo players may be worked out for use of the grounds for scrimmaging and playing of some games.
It is hard to put into words how much we have all appreciated our great Fans, Sponsors and our announcer, Danny Dance. Your support allowed us to bring in great polo teams from Madison, Chicago, Duluth, Minneapolis, Rockford, Des Moines, Saint Louis, Toronto, and Grand Rapids for 30 years We all shared many beautiful days, cookouts, great games, and of course a few rainouts. Our children and in some cases grandchildren grew up on the sidelines.
It has been a way of life for most of us for the greater part of our lives and our families lives and we will all miss it terribly.
It has been a GREAT RUN and we THANK YOU ALL.
Gaston Magariños, 21 years old, has been playing polo for 14 years and plays regularly at a high goal level in Uruguay. This will be Magariños second summer with the Milwaukee Polo Club having previously been here for the 2015 season.
