2017 USPA EAST COAST OPEN®

TOURNAMENT HISTORY

The East Coast Open (ECO) was first played in 1978 at Myopia Polo Club in Hamilton, Massachusetts. The trophy used for the event, known as the Perry Trophy, was first awarded in 1905 and retired by Myopia Polo Club in 1909. Per tournament stipulations at the time, if a team won the competition three times within five years, they would keep the coveted trophy. Myopia accomplished this prior to WWI and thus owned the trophy.
It was then put into use in 1978, when Donald V. Little Sr. established the ECO at Myopia Polo Club. The tournament remained at Myopia for 25 consecutive years until 2003. In its inaugural year, five teams competed in the ECO at the 14-18 goal level. Village Farm prevailed over Fairfield 10-4. The following year the East Coast Open gained momentum as a total of eight teams competed for the trophy, which moved to a higher handicap level of 16-20 goals.
In 2005, the ECO moved to the renowned Greenwich Polo Club in Greenwich, Connecticut. Over the past 10 years, White Birch has dominated competition with eight wins; including a notable five-year streak from 2005-2009. Aside from powerhouse White Birch, only two other teams have succeeded in securing the title in the last decade; Tupungato in 2010 and most recently Audi in 2015. Last year’s East Coast Open final match-up between Audi and White Birch resulted in a thrilling overtime victory for the home team White Birch.

2017 USPA SILVER CUP®

TOURNAMENT HISTORY

The Silver Cup® has been called many names throughout its illustrious 117-year history. Originally established as the Junior Championship, it was first played in 1900. The Junior Championship attracted such historic teams as Rockaway, Cooperstown, Meadow Brook, Old Aiken and Laddie Sanford’s Hurricanes, to name a few.
In 1938, the Junior Polo Championship was renamed the National Twenty Goal Championship. During this period the trophy was carried home by teams such as Bostwick Field, Milwaukee, Aurora, San Antonio and Oak Brook. The tournament took its present name, the Silver Cup, in 1974. Many winners of the cup hail from the Polo Hall of Fame—from J. Watson Webb and Tommy Hitchcock, to Robert Skene and Cecil Smith. In fact, no fewer than 50 Polo Hall of Famers have won the Silver Cup®. Out of the 50 Hall of Famers, W. Ray Harrington Jr. and Charles Smith have earned the most Silver Cup® titles with eight wins each.
The Silver Cup is returns to the East Coast after being played in Santa Barbara since 2011; Greenwich Polo Club hosts the 2017 Silver Cup in Greenwich, Connecticut.

2017 USPA MONTY WATERBURY CUP®

TOURNAMENT HISTORY

The Monty Waterbury Cup is the third oldest official USPA trophy in active competition, named in honor of 10-goal polo immortal James “Monty” Waterbury. A member of The Wanderers polo team, which won polo’s first U.S. Open Polo Championship® in 1904, he is also remembered as a member of the USA team known as the “Big Four,” that won five Westchester Cups against Great Britain.
In 1922, two years after his passing, his friends and teammates played for the first Monty Waterbury Cup, at the Meadow Brook Club, in Westbury, Long Island, were it became a perpetual challenge trophy for an impressive 28 year stretch. Historically played for on handicap by teams entered in the Open, the final game for the U.S. Open Polo Championship® was also the semifinal game for the Monty Waterbury. The inaugural games in 1922 boasted crowds of up to 20,000 people, who witnessed monumental eight chukker long battles. In 1954, however, the U.S. Open changed venues to Illinois, and the tournament was integrated into the Northeastern Circuit schedule, where is slowly receded into the background until it’s resurgence in 1975.
According to Horace Laffaye in his book “Polo in the United States,” the 1975 revival was spearheaded by Circuit Governor George Haas, Jr., whose Fairfield County Hunt Club won the tournament that year. Previously hosted in 2003, 2015 and 2016, this year will be the fourth time the tournament has been hosted at Greenwich Polo Club in Greenwich, Connecticut. Greenwich-based White Birch is tied for the most Waterbury wins with Maryland based team Gone Away Farm, who dominated in the 80’s and early 90’s, capturing a record five wins.
