The historic and picturesque Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet club is located in Carpinteria (pronounced carp-in-ter-EE-ya), a city of approximately 15,000 people, but that can swell much higher when the summer rush is on. San Francisco is almost 400 miles to the north and Santa Barbara is 12 miles northwest (it also sits on the Southern facing coastline). Ventura is 15 miles to the south and Los Angeles is 80 miles to the south.

Legend has it that the city got its name from the Spaniards who saw the Chumash Indians busy building the large ocean-going canoes called tomols and called it the 'carpenter shop' - La Carpinteria.

Carp, as the locals call it, is situated along the only Southern facing stretch of coastline in California. The climate, referred to as Mediterranean, never gets too cold or too hot. Annual daytime temperatures range from 60 to 80 degrees, and rainfall averages 17.9 inches yearly. The city sits on a thin strip of fertile land nestled between the mountains and the ocean and is unique in its diversity.

Carpinteria has always been self-sufficient, with a broad base of business, agriculture, and community activity. Even as many of the surrounding communities become more residential or more business or more tourist oriented, Carpinteria has retained all of the things that make a community a community.

It is an unusual town for Southern California, where many communities are either business or residential. There is a strong downtown area that contains a blend of businesses - from grocery stores to restaurants, from antique shops to candy shops, from banks to civic organizations. Residential areas are scattered and each has its own unique flavor and charm.

A strong draw for Carpinteria is it's world-class polo. The Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club, established in 1911, is situated on 30 magnificent ocean view acres with three manicured polo fields. Other facilities include a clubhouse, grandstands, stabling for 300 horses, tennis courts and swim center.

Polo games are held each Sunday through the Spring, Summer and Fall.
Tickets can be purchased at the gate.
Food and beverage service is available and includes box lunches & picnic baskets.

Late each summer, the high-goal Pacific Coast Open really brings the field to life drawing polo luminaries from around the world.
