With its regular field at Glen Farm made unplayable by constant rains, and draining from the upper fields to the polo grounds, Newport Polo moved its playing field to the upper field for yesterday’s (Saturday) match against first-time visitors, Peru.
While Newport Polo could move a field, it couldn’t budge a Peru team, all from the country’s only polo club in Lima, as Peru prevailed 11 to 7 in what proved to be a spirited match.
It was the opening match for Newport Polo’s season, with matches each Saturday at 5 through August and at 4 for the month of September.
