FALL 2011 SEASON​​

Ahhhhhh....

FINALLY, the weather is cooling off and it's beginning to feel like fall!  

As the temperature goes down, our attendance goes up, so make sure and get to the Club early to avoid traffic.  Also, extra tickets may be purchased online at www.thehoustonpoloclub.com

   • Please be aware that no outside beverages are allowed at HPC on Sundays.  Armando's will provide concessions at every game!

Box Crashing
We're all guilty, from time to time, of "borrowing" an empty box to accommodate unexpected guests.  However, our attendance at the Club has grown to the point where it is becoming a bit of an issue.  Please be aware that we are utilizing almost every Reserved box in the Grandstand.  If you have special guests and would like to arrange for Reserved seating, please contact the club by COB each Friday.
