$50,000 Prize Money Announced for Lucchese USPA Intra-Circuit Tournament!

The most coveted 12 goal polo tournament of the season is right around the corner! The Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club is excited to announce the 2019 Lucchese USPA Intra-Circuit Tournament,  June 14 - 23, featuring six teams competing towards the much sought after trophy… and for the first time in Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club’s history, there will be $50,000 in prize money awarded.
In 2019, the United States Polo Association began an initiative to add prize money to USPA tournaments across the country. The association offered to match any prize money awarded by the club. In this tournament, the teams and the club have pooled together money, which the USPA has matched, resulting in a grand prize of $50,000. Six teams will compete to make it to the final of the Intra-Circuit and win a piece of the prize money, including Novis Insurance,, Lucchese, Farmer & Merchants Bank, FMB Too!, and Klentner Ranch. Not only is this the first money tournament the club has offered, but it is one of the largest amounts of prize money offered for a polo tournament. 

The Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club will be hosting the Draw Party for the Intra-Circuit tournament directly after the 4pm Happy Hour match on Friday, June 7th. This party will determine the seeding of the tournament, and prepare players for the beginning of the Intra-Circuit. The Draw Party is open to the public and spectators are encouraged to attend! The party is a unique chance to meet the teams and players competing for this coveted prize money tournament and will feature light bites and drinks for purchase at the bar.
