Seattle Polo and Equestrian Club

Seattle Polo and Equestrian Club, the newest and premier polo club in the Pacific Northwest, played its  opening matches in Enumclaw for the the Seattle Cup Tournament.

Polo, one of the oldest team sports in history, originated in Persia more than 2,000 years ago, and has spread around the world since then. The United States Polo Association (USPA) was created in 1890, and now boasts more than 250 active polo clubs throughout the country. Polo in the United States is traditionally played in the summer months with the winter polo season played in dry areas of the southern states.

Seattle Polo and Equestrian Club (SPEC), which features 68 acres of equestrian facilities including a regulation-size polo field, two riding arenas, stables for 60 horses, pasture for an additional 60 horse, individual polo lessons and polo clinics, kicked off the Northwest polo season with a July 17 practice session that was open to the public, drawing more than 300 local attendees.
