GPL Tournament Gallops Back Into Wellington April 4-7

The GPL tournament will feature fast-paced polo action.

The highly anticipated 10th annual Land Rover Palm Beach International Gay Polo Tournament, presented by RSM US, will return to Wellington on April 4-7, to be hosted once again at the International Polo Club Palm Beach.

The glamorous event promises to be one of the highlights of the season; a chic destination fête for wanderlusters and polo enthusiasts alike. This year, the not-for-profit partner is SAGE. Founded in 1978, SAGE is the nation’s oldest and largest organization dedicated to serving and advocating for LGBT older adults.

Recently awarded the title of LGBTQ Sporting Event of the Year by Connect Sports, the tournament promises to maintain its award-winning vibe by offering both players and attendees an unrivaled experience.

Guests can once again look forward to the festive “GPL Polotini Presents Wigstock” party held on Friday, April 5 at IPC’s Mallet Grill. On Saturday, April 6, there will be fast-paced polo matches, renowned tailgate competitions and the quintessential divot stomp on the Isla Carroll Field. The weekend concludes with a lavish brunch buffet at the members-only Mallet Grill, and a high-goal polo game as the U.S. Open Polo Championship kicks off its championship tournament.

“I am so proud and thankful to our supporters for seeing us through our 10th anniversary year,” GPL founder and player Chip McKenney said. “This event is a global sensation, but we have also turned the game of polo into a platform for human rights. It is a feel-good event in every way, and one that is not to be missed.”
