The Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club’s luxury boutique offers a selection of chic apparel for both men and women, and is open to the public every Sunday throughout the season. The boutique showcases everything from casual and elegant women’s apparel, handbags and accessories to sporty and sophisticated men’s brands and logo wear, making it the perfect place to shop in between the match and stomping divots. Open on Sundays during the season and for special events, there’s something for everyone at the boutique. In addition, club members can enjoy discounts on merchandise.

Divot Stomp

During the half time of the Main Match on Sunday (between the 3rd and 4th chukker),  polo spectators are invited to walk out onto the field during the DIVOT STOMP and help with field maintenance, replacing the divots put into the grass by the horses' hooves.  Enjoy this time old tradition just like in the movie "Pretty Woman".
