It’s Polo, People!

Check your chukker and primp your ponies — it’s almost polo time!

Empire Polo Club invites spectators to attend preseason games, which take place Saturdays and/or Sundays from Nov. 25 to Dec. 18. (Regular season begins Jan. 8, 2012.)

Empire Polo Club has gained notoriety of late as the location for Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals. But during much of the year it serves as the venue for the world’s oldest team sport: polo.  Last year, EPC revitalized its polo operation after more than a dozen years of loaning fields to Eldorado Polo Club.

General admission to matches is free. Spectators can bring their own chairs and blankets and tailgate along the main field or sit in the grandstands. Check the daily game schedule for times and dates at or join EPC’s Facebook page for news and events.

After you’ve enjoyed a day of preseason polo, check out Date Shed, Empire Polo Club’s nightlife venue featuring live music on Friday and Saturday nights.

Empire Polo Club, 81800 Avenue 51, Indio. 1-760-393-7298;
