WE are tentatively planning the Polo Tournamens for 2020!!! The dates and theme will be announced soon as we look forward to a "fun" raiser of an event...outdoors at the polo field.
The Annual Polo Tournament at Blackberry Polo Field (Bliss Road, ½ mile south of Main Street) hosts teams from around the county, and this year ticket sales to the championship game will go to support Batavia Main Street’s Shakespeare on Clark project. The Polo match will take place on a Sunday, Noon and lasting until one team emerges victorious. This is a family friendly fund raiser game. Families and groups drive into the field area, and are encouraged to tailgate, bringing in lunches and beverages, and set up pop tents and make this a festive experience. Prizes will be awarded for the best tailgater decorating their area, dressing and creating menus to suit the theme.. To go with the theme, there will be a variety of other activities offering entertainment for the attendees, featuring wagon rides around the field pulled by the famous Clydesdale horses. During the match, the crowd is encouraged to stomp back divots between chuckers, and will learn the rules of the game as the announcer calls the game and takes time to explain what and why events are happening. We are currently reviewing social distancing and safety guidelines to make this a save event for everyone. Stay tuned! Tickets for this event will also be available at the Batavia Main Street Office and All Dresssed Up Costumes in Batavia.
