On Sunday, October 3rd, Hyde Park Farm and Polo Club invites the public to an afternoon of hoof-pounding excitement as two local polo teams – Hyde Park Polo Club and High Cotton – compete in the “Fall Picnic and Polo” exhibition match.

The gates will open at 1 p.m. and the polo match will begin at 3 p.m. The cost is $10 per vehicle with a portion of the proceeds going to support Debi’s Kids and the Salvation Army Angel Tree, a local charity that provides Christmas toys to underprivileged children in the Greater Charleston area. Cosponsors for this action-packed event are Charleston Bliss and Charleston Outdoors magazine

Both competing teams consist of local amateur and professional players. South Carolina legislator Chip Limehouse is scheduled to play for Hyde Park and his father, Buck Limehouse, will announce the match.

Spectators are encouraged to pack a picnic, a blanket or folding chairs for seating, and enjoy an afternoon at Hyde Park Farm’s 380 acres of lush pastures with fishing ponds, shady oaks and the beautifully restored historic Beech Hill House. The farm offers Lowcountry hospitality with the flavor of South America, from the Argentinean leather in the hand-stitched bridles to the metal details of the elegant barn that is big enough for a corporate or private party.
